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.
