And another thing...
I still need a plot for my NaNoWriMo Novel. Jon's ideas about Karndide aside, I've got nada.

I wasn't going to worry about a plot until Nov. 1, but I've changed my mind.

GIVE ME PLOT IDEAS!!

Current Mood: groggy groggy

The story of a young lady who converts to Orthodox Judiasm while planning a wedding.

yeah, you've suggested that one. No fair repeating ideas. ;)

I haven't ruled it out.

Just looking at all my options.

wedding

How about the story of a wedding who converts to Orthodox Judiasm while planning a young lady.

I mean, everyone loves wedding books....

the story of a young man/woman who becomes disillusioned with his/her faith
insert whatever religion you want

funny, most people I've talked to (not necessarily on LJ) have suggested the opposite. Either way, I think I could go with that.

Faith...

How about, a midget bunny who loses his faith in lettuce, only to find it again in the cabbage patch....

Or, similar to what Simkin suggests, have your main character find faith, lose it, find it again, lose it again, and continue finding and losing it until everyone's sick of the whole thing, and chucks him down a well. (See Weiss & Hickman's Darksword trilogy for a clue as to what I'm talking about...)

Or, make it a charming little story about Faith, Hope and Charity... the atheist, the pessimist, and the miser... and how they went and had their names legally changed.

Or, something else.

um... how about the wombat who wanted to be a fish? or on a more serious note, you can always do the tried and true "writing about trying to find something to write about" a la Adaption. :-)

I seriously thought about writing about some poor chick who was dumb enough to agree to write a novel in a month or less but couldn't so much as come up with a plot. I think that may have to be what I go with.

Err...

How about a delightful story of a bunny and how he sees the world as a place that is just trying to keep lettuce from him and how it is terribly unfair. Oh, and sex, sex sells.

Re: Err...

I can't write sex scenes. They make me blush.

Seriously.

I'm not kidding.

Re: Err...

Unless you include play by play pictures, you readers won't know that.
gwiii From: gwiii Date: October 14th, 2003 03:12 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: Err...

You could hint then. Yes, a nice story about a bunny and lettuce and a hint of sex.

Re: Bunnies

but not midget bunnies. They're too short for a book....

Re: Bunnies

Or maybe Witches...

Re: Bunnies

We could taunt it. Perhaps it will become so cross that it will make a mistake....

Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, verses 9 - 21:

Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, verses 9 - 21:

First shalt thou pullest the pin.
Then, count thou to three. no more, no less.
Three shall be the number of the counting, and the counting shall be three.
Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, unless thou procedest to three.
Five is right out.
Once the number three, being the third number is counted, the lobbest thou thy holy hand grenade at thine enemies, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it.


It's frightening that I can remember so much of that movie... almost word for word... especially since I haven't seen it in years...
