Not NaNoWriMo – Part 7

Ok people, you know the drill. This is the bit of my blog when I tell you about a novel that I’m definitely not writing in order to fully ‘not participate’ in this year’s NaNoWriMo.

There’s a hint of Scandinavian whimsy about today’s effort as I present:

The Old Man Who Did Something

It’s essentially about an old man who does something. Probably something quite ordinary and mundane.

But in doing that thing he will doubtless make the world a better place in some sort of abstract way.

And everyone will feel uplifted.

Which can only be a good thing.

    THE 100 YEAR OLD MAN WHO CLIMBED OUT OF THE WINDOW AND DISAPPEARED sold three million copies for Sweedish novelist Jonas Jonasson back in 2012, so your take on the ‘elderly eccentric’ genre may not be such an unlikely success as at first it may sound.

      Where other Swedish eccentrics may lead, I’m more than happy to follow…

    James, this is the best yet!
    Hang on, did I say that before? Well this is betterer!
    Did you write this one in your pj’s? I see you’ve become Jams Proclams. Or is it because you said e i didn’t write it?

      There is no ‘I’ in T-E-A-M. Which has nothing to do with anything really…
