Not NaNoWriMo – Part 1

Two days ago, I explained that I would not be participating in this year’s National Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo to the aficionado). This is mainly due to time commitments but also partially because I can’t really think of anything I’d want to write an entire novel about.

I did speculatively play around with some ideas for novels I might write though, and I thought I might share a few of those on this very blog  intermittently over the next week or so.

Because if this blog has a point (and I like to believe that it does) then surely it is the sharing of whatever useless nonsense is floating around in my head at any given moment.

So, without out further ado the title of my first novel idea is as follows:

 

The Girl Who Ate A Pie

Now it is possible I’ve missed the boat on this one, but there was definitely a phase of the most successful novels having ‘Girl’ in the title. So, I figured if that still is a ‘thing’ then I’ve already got a bestseller on my hands before anyone has even read a paragraph.

I’m not entirely sure what the premise would be, but essentially there would be a girl, and at some point, she would eat a pie. The pie may or may not be significant. I’d like to think the pie would be quite important though. Most of the ‘Girl’ books centre around some kind of mystery and what’s more mysterious than a pie? Is it a steak and kidney pie or a chicken and mushroom pie? Does she have it with chips or does she opt for mash? Is it even a savoury pie, or could it be a fruit pie (in which case why is she eating it with mashed potato? Cos seriously that’s gross).

See you’re hooked already.

Hollywood are already casting for the lead role in the rushed-to-screen-and-shameless-cash-in movie adaptation.

    Ah but will the girl and the pie end up as pie in the sky?

    I can help you out with this one! The girl is eating her pie at halftime during the Brighton v Southampton game. She appears to be alone when someone taps her on the shoulder and she looks round and a look of intense fear waves across her face. “How did you find
    me?” ….. Etc etc

      A thriller in the making. Which is more than can be said for that particular fixture this year…

      Eat it. Buy it. Just don’t attempt to read it.

    Would this be like those teen movies from my teenage years? Where they would have a farce with a title like “another teen movie” or “not another teen movie” and just make fun of all the other teen movies that had come out? You’re on to something!

      I mean if I could be bothered to write it, it would be exactly like that. But it’ll never actually see the light of day sadly.

    It needs more conflict. Like maybe the girl can’t find a fork.
