Since discovering this wonderful challenge a little over two weeks ago I have been able to think of nothing else. What I haven't been able to do though is decide exactly what type of novel I will write. Naturally the possibilities are endless.
These are my possibilities so far
- Teenage romance - I figure this would be fairly easy as I had plenty of romance as a teenager to draw from
- A fictional recount of my father's life - he has after all done some pretty cool things and since he was born in 1929 there is again plenty to draw from. Plus it would be nice to have a record of it all. Would certainly need to do some more research though
- A daughter dealing with her father's death - this would be based on my imagination though as thankfully my dad is still alive (though quite frankly I do expect him to die any day but then that has been a constant thought for many years and it still hasn't happened)
- Mother/Daughter relationship - probably not going to be all that positive, which means my mother would probably get upset if she ever read it.
- Five or six random characters and the lives they lead. Somehow they would all interact with each other, with it all coming together in the end. I particularly like this idea as if I am looking like being short on words I can just add another couple of characters
- Junior fantasy based fiction. On the upside I would only need very easy language on the downside would also need a very active imagination
