Allow me to present to you, in the center ring, Matthew the Insane!
Matthew isn't about to embark upon a normal feat of daring. He will not be merely jumping through flaming hoops wearing nothing but a gasoline soaked jock strap. He will not be simply covering himself with catnip and throwing himself into a cage with starving lions. He won't be just eating sushi in Chicago.
Matthew will be, for your enjoyment, writing a novel and posting it online as he is doing it. He will not be relying on detailed notes. He will not have the ability to go back and rewrite previous chapters that don't fit with later chapters. He hasn't completed any of the required research for the historical chapters.
