I am blocked. This is November. In November is something called National Novel Writing Month.
The Teacher has been telling me that I need to do NaNoWriMo. She can be very persistent. I've resisted based on two counts: I wasn't planning to do NaNoWriMo and therefore have no story, and I have no story.
I now have a story.
I'm going to do a spoof. So what book/movie have I read/watched so much I don't need to reread it to get an idea of the outline?
And on that note, here's my outline for my story this month:
Girl is sad.
Girl meets very handsome Boy.
Boy is a brat.
Girl resolves not to obsess over bratty Boy.
Girl fails miserably.
Boy confesses love to Girl.
Girl decides that love will overcome all, and loves him back. Because she's stupid.
Evil Murderer targets Girl because (as far as I can tell) every- one/thing does.
Boy miraculously saves Girl.
They live happily until the next book.
Yep. That's right. I'm spoofing Twilight. It's a good thing only one person reads this because the weight of the hate mail would crush me. As far as plagiarism goes, there's a word for this sort of thing. 'Fanfic'.
But the thing is, Twilight has some desperate needs. For instance, it needs vampire hunters. And witches. And fiery preachers with crucifixes. And possibly Ents, although the Teacher says I have to read that part of the book before I put Ents in anything because she loves the Ents and doesn't want them misrepresented and I say the Lord of the Rings trilogy is forever long and I don't have time for that and there's no way I can read only part of it. So probably no Ents.
And see, this way I can kill off Rosalie! What could be better?
My working title is The Silverware Drawer because I can't take a name like that seriously and I'm taking too many things seriously and the first draft of Twilight, according to Meyer, was called Forks, and I hope she would know.
There are so totally going to be vampire hunters.
