The story starts when the protagonist opens a lost diplomat’s email

Pew-pew-pew! Lasers! Pew-pew-pew!

Nanowrimo. On the one hand.

But, on the other hand.

Who knows?

I’m tempted.

I have this mental image of a rusty bus overgrown with blackberries, being jumpstarted by kids plugging half a mile of stolen extension cords into a socket at a dialysis center.

Who knows?

I googled “plot generators”.

Castles are popular.

In her new book, “How to be an explorer of the world,” Keri Smith mentions a meditation exercise used by Leonard, which involves imagining being Leonard Cohen. What exactly would he have to do?

    Hey, this will be my daughters second year with Nanowrimo. (She also did the script in a month version). So far, no best sellers, but she is only 14, that guy who wrote Eragon didn’t write a best seller until he was 18, so I’m cutting her some slack.

  2. I’m thinking Pew-Pew-Pew! is an excellent possibility for opening sentence. Call me Pew-Pew-Pew! Lasers!

    That’s raw material right there, that is.

    i first read that sentence in a list of runners-up in a bad writing contest i now can’t find, otherwise i’d link it. all i know is, it wasn’t the bulwer lytton.

    I think it is time to call that hobo spider Mig and write a story
