A story emerges

My story is emerging as a Diana Wynne-Jones/Isaac Asimov fan fiction mishmash.

I'm amazed I haven't been approached by a major publisher yet but maybe I need to add a few ninjas first.

Cool. Very cool.

Bevie said...

Or vampires. Those seem to be very popular right now.

Robin, I wish it was!

Bevie, vampires are so last week. I'm putting my money on ninjas and pirates. Or ninja pirates.

Bevie said...

Sorry. Not only do I not keep up with current trends, but I'm not even observant about them until they're on the way out. (Or already gone.)

Guess I just like seeing the backside of things.

fairyhedgehog said...

Bevie, I was joking. I assumed you were too?

Throw in a lovable reject with a mechanical peg-leg and you're golden!

fairyhedgehog said...

maybegenius, I'm tired and I read that as musical peg-leg. Well, that would be different!

Who needs ninjas when you can have *robots*!

Robin S. said...

It IS cool, FH - no one else has your voice.

Whirlochre said...

What about fairy hedgehogs? They're waiting to happen.

Hope you reach 28K by the weekend.

fairyhedgehog said...

sylvia, ooh robots! Shiny! I've got AI holograms but no robots yet.

Robin, thank you. I'm not sure anyone else would want my voice at the moment but thanks for the encouragement!

Whirl, there are no hedgehogs and no fairies! I stole fairyhedgehog from Pratchett so I'd better not put that in.

I only need 85 words to get to 28k, so the word count is looking good. And that's what Nano is all about.

Alien Space-Ninjas FTW!

fairyhedgehog said...

Richard, they're cool but I think I'll stick with ninja pirates. No, really.

Richard N said...

You've just given me an idea for after this challenge... and it'll involve a bit of collaboration for as many people as feel moved to join in.

I won't spoil this challenge by revealing the next one before you've finished. >;-)

fairyhedgehog said...

Richard, you dangle the new challenge before us like a mystery carrot. No wonder you've used a devil smiley, it's well deserved!

Richard N said...

FH - you can have a lot of fun with a 'mystery carrot'...

fairyhedgehog said...

Richard, you can make almost anything sound naughty!
