Ask the guy trying to write the "Just OK American Novel"

I’m trying to write the “Just OK American Novel”, which has slowly evolved into a possible screenplay. My working title is “Rainbow Generations”. The 6 lead Charcters:

Todd/Zach-Chris Sr.

Is it a ‘family drama’ kind of story? That’s what the title seems to imply.

What are your major influences as an author?

How many words do you write a day?

Yes, it’s a family epic (spans over 90 years) I originally wrote several vignettes, totally filling a 1-subject niotebook.

Derleth-Just noticed ? #2

Major influences? Well, started writing as a way to keep busy/sane in nursing home.
