Default Fun Project/Do My Work for Me

Okay, so going crazy awaiting word from some editors, so figured I'd just dive right into my next project. I figured I'd write a "throw-back" mystery, so it'd be fun to write and pretty easy to sell as well.

Anyway, time to start developing the cast of characters and well... might be fun in a boring NON off-season to put the basic and superficial stuff to the population. I've already worked out the details and the murderer etc, but the rest is kinda inconsequential and plug and go so if anyone comes up with a good idea I can run with it for fun.

In b4 why don't you make 10 self absorbed condescending a-holes since you can identify so well that?

In b4 you suck

Just make up some crap about Anti-gravity devices and aliens to sell to nutjobs like McGoober.

Or better yet write a story based around an incident that is debunked. You can set it in the 40's during the war.

Random tangent:

I sometimes feel like a future terrorist or serial killer when I watch crime shows on TV. I always see how everyone was found out and think "I wouldn't make that mistake, I'd get away with that...". It sometimes makes me scare myself but as someone said once upon a cartoon, "I yam what I yam".

Anyways, point of this: Down here in Florida, there's a pretty bad drought going on. All the "lakes" are significantly below their usual levels. Well, the other day I was looking out at the fountain from my apt and noticed the exposed ground which would usually be covered with water. All I've watched on TV for the last two weeks probably are crime shows but as I was looking at that exposed ground, one of my thoughts was "That's the perfect place to bury a body if you needed to." Once water levels returned there would be almost zero chance of being discovered if you could manage to get it buried without attracting attention. Then I went and had ice cream.

Anyone else creep themselves out watching too many crime shows? Don't take my idea.

What about a cartoon rabbit that is always getting into zany capers? I guess that's been done before, but has it really been explored in the form of a murder novel? Make it a book about a murdering cartoon lizard, and you could be breaking new ground here that no author has ever dared touch. Think about the fame.

I think TSIguy is graduating but if not, I'll be on the FAU campus with him in the fall. If I EVER see anyone in Bronco gear, I'm gonna say his car burnt from trying to haul his GF around and see if his head explodes.

How about a goofball named Revy who rides around on his beloved lobster named Mongo. Revy has a second personality named Super Ego. Ego is jealous of Revy & Mongos passionate love for each other.

Every day Revy rides his Mongo hippity hop style. Every night Ego pops the inflatable love lobster...... Every morning Revy repairs it with loving care. Every Night Ego finds another way to do-in Mongo.

It's a dastardly love Triangle. A cross between fight club and ground hog day.

I'd say no, but it's kinda debate-able. I trade stocks for a living... But frankly I'm not that good at it.

I wrote a book (past tense) and made some decent money that I currently use to make a good living off of, and recently finished two more books out of boredom that I'm enduring the slow process of selling now.

how about a story about a message board poster who takes himself way too seriously who goes insane because others on the board do not see a lot of his points the way he intends. insane because no one pays him much attention he begins to hunt down and brutally torture and kill other members of the site.

The name was Interweb tough guy for dummies. The story of a tough talking little turd hiding safely behind his messages and sticky keyboard. It's a fantasy novelette.

I guess that's one way to get a giant lobster lick.

Make it so...


So now we have Interweb tough guy in lobster love triangle smearing on tainted peanut butter. Wet kisses, plenty of inflatable raft patches and sticky key boards.

Damn! This thing is writing itself

You need to have some crazed guy in his 60's who's coming up with a new country to move to every week because this nation is doomed...dooooomed....DOOOOOMED.

A retried wrestler who can't move on and feels the need to always perform...even if it's buying groceries and his coupon is rejected.

Last will be a former Sumo who ended up running a very successful weight loss business. It turns out he's been giving everyone food infected with tapeworm eggs!

I can see that the zany caperous cartoon lizard is a non-starter, which is a little upsetting given the careful thought I put into that idea.

How about a futuristic setting where robots provide a large amount of the policing, which made sense at first, but as always happens with government, encroachment into the lives of the people was inevitable. Eventually the tensions rise to where a rebellion breaks out, and now there is civil strife between the Automotonophobisists and the Federal/Global establishment - made up of humans (many of which have been modified themselves with various augments), and a semi-sentient network. Meanwhile, through all the strife, an immensely augmented human cyborg detective is on the trail of a murderer who is trying to hide a terrible secret - a secret so dark that it would rock the foundations of modern society and scar the world with the spectre of an inconveivable and endless war that has the potential to devestate humanity.

That secret, of course, being that the murderer is a capricious cartoon lizard whose carefree capers plow a wake of destruction wherever he goes, and through the power of magic he can summon an army of cartoon characters for his devious purposes, pitting man and the machine against each other.

Think of the fame. I'm thinking this is a trilogy.

Can one of them be a wanna be jazz saxophonist who tries to substitute his despair with drugs and lots of sex with strippers and hookers. Make him like obviously ****ed in the head so you know people will think hes probably the killer. But you know really just a red herring who likes 8 balls and trashy women.
