What does it feel like to try and create something new? How is it possible to find a space for the demands of writing a novel in a world of instant communication? Working on My Novel is about the act of creation and the gap between the different ways we express ourselves today. Exploring the extremes of making art, from satisfaction and even euphoria to those days or nights when nothing will come, it's the story of what it means to be a creative person, and why we keep on trying.

MEDIA REVIEWS
An epically brilliant work by a great American artist and author -- Jonah Peretti, co-founder of Buzzfeed
It is hard to imagine a book more of its time than Working on My Novel... Arcangel has reflected something poignant about this collective yearning for creative individuation, about how technology seems to facilitate self-expression while effecting a strange obliteration of the individual-a symbolic compression of the self into the repository of the personal brand... The playful suggestion here seems to be that Working on My Novel is itself actually a novel * New Yorker *
Arcangel's work regularly uses appropriation, whether it's hacking video games, excavating Andy Warhol old computer console illustrations or creating hi-tech art inspired by Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone". Working On My Novel sticks to those themes of endless recycling, transferring one form of media to create another - and as always, it's pretty funny * Dazed and Confused *
Can't wait to finish this : ) so can work on my #novel -- Mark Sinclair * Creative Review *
The tweets were found by searching Twitter for the phrase "working on my novel," and originally compiled at Arcangel's twitter account, @wrknonmynovel. Seriously meta. And seriously funny-sad * io9.com *
For some, Twitter is both a distraction and a medium for a peculiar type of written soliloquy. It's the confluence of those two streams that makes artist Cory Arcangel's new book, Working on my Novel, particularly poignant * The Verge *
Man. I wish I'd come up with that idea. #amwriting * Engadget *
