Failure DeMotivational Poster


I’ll shelve the ideas and start fresh next year, but thanks for the encouragement.

For the meantime, brand me a failure, and I’ll hopefully have some bloggy goodness up later in the week!


NaNoWriMo Thang-Thang

9 11 2009

National Novel Writing Month (yeah, I needed to look it up too) is this month. I’m not writing anything, but I’m considering it. Which totally puts me in a disadvantaged spot, since a full third of the month is done and the second half of the month includes Thanksgiving and Christmas shopping… But yeah, I’m totally the guy who would do this. Or at least give it a good go. So, I’m considering it.

Here’s what I’m thinking in terms of novel topics, and I’d love feedback:

1) Semi-Fictitious story about a office drone who realizes that he has the world’s best idea. Ever.

2) Sci-fi cyberpunk story a-la William Gibson, but written in 20 days or less, so it will very likely suck bad…Ever.

3) The most user-submitted idea. Ever. (In other words, if you think of something you’d like to see me write about, submit it in the comments!)
