As I previously mentioned, I have signed up to http://www.nanowrimo.org and have every intention of writing a 50,000 word novel in November. I am pumped and can’t wait for Tuesday to come around so I can get started. You can still sign up for a month of madness, so if you haven’t already put your name down for passage on this fantastic voyage do it now. You know you want to.
I have decided upon my subject for November. I feel it is quirky enough to get 50,000 words from. Not only that I get to fulfill a long-held personal ambition. Since I decided to participate I have had an idea in my head which has already started to take on a life of its own. I know that between now and the time I finished this project I will not be able to sleep. Today I filled in my synopsis on the NaNoWriMo website so I feel able to publicly share the very loose basis for the project. Of course it may change a thousand times through November but for today it is correct. So here you are, the brief outline to my new novel. Are you sitting comfortably?
There are three things which can irrevocably change a man’s life. Death, God and saying the wrong thing at precisely the wrong moment. Unfortunately for Professor Henry Tomlinson he has recently experienced all three. As Henry desperately tries to cling onto the remnants of his sanity he gets pursued by ninjas, hunted by journalists and stalked by priests. Can Henry get through this ordeal without losing his mind, and if he does what kind of Henry Tomlinson will remain?
