If I was truly reckless, I would fancy myself an accomplished writer. However, these blog postings are as far as I have gone (yet), but I do have lots of amazing stories in my head – I’m good at creating story ideas, and even the occasional opening sentence. But after that, I get so distracted by the technical aspect of writing that it becomes a chore.
Someday the floodgates will open and my life will be fulfilled with fawning editors and nationwide book signing events, but until then, I’m an idea man.
One of the most excellent book ideas I’ve come up with is about the trials and tribulations of an Illegal, Transgendered Space Alien. It will be a blockbuster because it has all the elements of a best-seller; it is relevant, edgy and has a great character that is very relatable.
However, I need some help with some plot points, and the beginning as well as the ending. I’ve got everything else covered. I think for the title, I’ll stick with something short, like maybe the character’s name – “Xerxes”, or maybe a summation of the character’s attitude – “Why Am I Here”, or “Where Are My Socks?”.
I’m sure you can agree that it will be a big hit!
