This is a long chapter taken from the novel Terminal Monday. I'm releasing it as a novella because I believe it reads perfectly well on its own.

It retells the considerably exaggerated events of the time when Richard Burley, professional writer and aspiring composer, woke up to find himself under clinical observation in the psych ward of a NYC hospital. It is almost entirely a work of fiction, but it also contains very mature subject matter, including sex, violence, and mental illness. Please do not let minors read this unless you are prepared to discuss it with them afterwards. Thank you.

    Originally, I thought reviewing my own work would be sort of unethical, but I've had a bit of a rethink on that score. If I don't have enough faith in my own work to promote it with a decent review, how will that look to everyone else? So I'm reviewing it, despite my obvious bias. First off, as noted in the title, Under Observation is part of a much (much) longer novel, but I feel strongly that this chapter (a forty-thousand word single chapter, if you can believe that one.

If I don't have enough faith in my own work to promote it with a decent review, how will that look to everyone else? So I'm reviewing it, despite my obvious bias. First off, as noted in the title, Under Observation is part of a much (much) longer novel, but I feel strongly that this chapter (a forty-thousand word single chapter, if you can believe that one. Yeah, me neither, so I broke it up into several parts for this publication) stands as a complete piece of short story/novella fiction all on it's own. It also has a generally happier outcome than the larger novel it came from. More I will not say. The full novel will be published soon enough. Now, I gave this book five stars, and I want you to know why: because it's one of the strongest, strangest pieces of fiction I've ever written, and I feel very strongly about it. I would love people to read the full novel, but if they decide that the challenge of reading 260K words of new fiction from an as-yet unproven author is too much, then I would very much like them to at least read this part of it. I think it stands as the best argument I can make for reading the novel in its complete form. Well, that and the lyrics. As a matter of fact, I think I'll end this review with a short song from the larger book: Moments Everything you know could fill a thimble in time All the things you're ever going to do Memories of a lifetime on the edge of reason Grasping at illusions for just one thing that's true. It never comes easy unless it comes too easily It's always feast or famine in this life To find a sense of meaning is a luxury, they say The only dish they serve is pain with strife. But if memory's a luxury Then I'm fit to be a king I've seen more than my share Though I can't explain anything. All I know for sure is that You have to be in the event And all of your careful plans Dissolve into solitary moments.
