The Novel Of A Dream

I started writing a novel in bed last night- half in a dream and half on the edge of it. The opening went something like this...

I never liked my father- he was a Victorian clergyman of the muscular variety- and we eventually had a falling out. As I remember blows were exchanged. I had a little money laid aside and spent it on a passage to South Africa where- being good with guns, women and horses- I got a job as a carter...

The novel was going to be called Q-  and it would have developed into an adventure story in the style of King Solomon's Mines or Alan Quartermain.
