Unnamed Novel, Chapter Three

Hello, Oort Cloud. This won't make sense if you read it without the first two chapters, also blogged here.

-Chapter 3-

I try to close my eyes and sleep, but my mind and stomach are spinning too fast for me to settle. The headache begins to throb in earnest. I need a cigarette.

I pull out my computer, trading one addiction for another, and log on to my hard disk.

Mail. Three rejections from three different print mags for three different articles. I asked for money. I think that was the problem.
