This week I started outlining my new book. It’s a novel, and I’m hoping it will be funny. It’s going to be a lot more fun than a memoir because I can make shit up- I’m not constrained by the truth.

So what’s it about? Well first off, it contains the following items in no particular order:

steamboats

holographic computer systems

an FBI man

Winchester rifles

bikinis

time travel

a dog named Chester

a 1968 Ford Mustang with a 427 Cobra Jet engine

fires

jewel theft

billionaires

scientists

wealthy land owners

an underage squid

a wrinkled pair of blue jeans

Coca Cola

explosives

San Francisco

A bad guy in a black hat.

There may also be a cameo by Donald Trump’s great, great grandfather.

And believe it or not, I think I can tie all of the above items together in a logical fashion with a minimal amount of weed, so that’s a big cost savings for me.

I’m on track to finish the outline this week, followed by the actual writing the week after.

Once the book is complete, I’ll revise it and have an editor take a look at it.

If it works, I’ll create a cover and give the book to my beta readers. I’ll then take their advice, make changes, and have the book up by Halloween.

At least that’s the plan. We’ll see what happens. I’m easily distracted.

Wow. Squids and steamboats and bikinis, oh my. You are seriously twisted. When does it come out? Halloween? Ok. I will set aside a few bucks. You can use the money for a psychiatrist.
