A Novel Idea

As you've likely noticed, by the severe lack of blogging happening here at WBB, we've got a lot of stuff going on these days in our offline lives. Loree is in law school and working full time. I'm working full time, teaching and participating in FAR too many extracurricular activities. And, in my case, I got so burned out on the election so early that I haven't had much to say.

Anyway, Jon and I were taking a walk and discussing the plot of the novel I will write to make us millionaires this afternoon, and I figured it would be worth while to open up this novel writing concept to the full WBB crew. So, without further ado -- here's my novel idea -- The John Dillinger Fan Club -- after the jump.

So, now you're thinking... WTF Laura, why John Dillinger? Well, dear friends, John Dillinger was a bad ass during the depression, as I learned by watching the History Channel on my Saturday night. And surely he deserves a fan club of 12-year-olds who plot a bank heist in Sioux South Dakota in 1935.

Jon though, being the person he is, tells me that while this sounds like a great story, it will not make us millions, nor will it produce a summer box office smash. Therefore, the following elements have been added:
  • The kids don't live in 1935 -- they live in 2035 -- and they're called Crypto Kids who hack banks and give money to the poor in a twisted version of John Dillinger meets Robin Hood.
  • They have a "dude" in Jakarta (because all good novels and movies made for TV have a dude in Jakarta)
  • The kids have a vendetta against Lehman Bros. because it turns out that the original Lehman Bros were the descendants of John Dillinger's love child. And John Dillinger wouldn't be as big of dick head as Lehman Bros has been to the world.
So, the Crypto Kids in the John Dillinger Fan Club are apparently going to funnel money through a dude in Jakarta stolen from Lehman Bros and give the money in $1 increments to everyone in the world via electronic transfer.

So much for my period piece. Please add on to this amazing plot that will soon make me millions. I promise to dedicate the movie to all of you.
