... Because you still have a head is a novel-in-progress, the logical continuation of a previous assignment to write the introductory six-thousand words of a novel. This dissertation is in three parts; a 10,000 word creative narrative, a 5,000 word critical reflection, and an appendix (which was solely included to add much more context to the creative assignment. The author has drawn upon many sources to complete this assignment, authors of both a theoretical and creative work. He intends to continue writing the proposed novel, and to use this body of work to critically reflect on his own style, and attempt to find out what both his strengths and his weaknesses are. The author intends to use these two chapters as a mid-point in a work-in-progress novel he is working on. The author also urges the audience to read the contents of the appendix (which is the first chapter of the proposed novel), as it will serve to greatly increase the context.
