Sounds like an immense pain in the ass, to me. Hell, I can't even write a cheque.

Are you sure you guys won't write about kittins and well shaven nurses? [Roll Eyes]

But then again people might read it and die of the sheer stupidity and nonsence, so maybe you guys should just stick to the forums. [Big Grin]

i've never been much for writing, speicaly novels, but it sounds like a cool idea. [Wink]

I was going to write a novel once-no twice! The first tried to get off the ground and hit a tree killing all 3 characters on bord. The second is requesting clearance to taxi, but it might not work due to the fact that it will be soley for cathartic reasons only and not for those who like happy endings, likely due to the fact that everyone dies except the Dwarf. Inmost novels the dwarf dies. But not this one...

uh-oh, looks like you need a time machine to take your work back to november 1st and go on in the past if you wanna get those 50,000 words done till december...

but don't get caught doing 88mph in town!

otherwise you'll end up with empty pockets after you went into the future to collect the riches that musta have piled up since you made a deposit in 2002 and came to get it in 3002 not knowing that the police had caught you speeding 2002 and sent you a ticket and the fees did increase by time 'cause you ignored all the warnings and the state drew in all your money to balance your debts and....aargh! ok, don't use that time machine or you'll tear a hole into the space/time continuum! don't say i didn't warn you! [Eek!]

uhem,... [Big Grin] *scratches back of his head and goes to get some fresh air*

Gosh, darn it Janeway,

I wish I read about this sooner. I already had a treatment for "My Little Pony Goes to Mars."

I suppose this will have to wait for next year.

And next year, my little Pony won't be so little any more.

But that's a horse of a different color.

Ahh, life interferes. I only got half a page done yesterday. The day before I was going steady at full steam, on the fourth page of the day, and my pen runs out of ink! [Eek!] [Mad]

23 pages so far... I'm tired of my characters, tired of the plot. I think it's time for a big catastrophe... Hmm, maybe some space aliens.

And, dear Janeway, where is your novel-in-progress posted on the web? We want to be reading it. (I promise only positive remarks from me.)
