Katrina at Callapidder Days has tagged me for a novel meme. The one and only question is:
If you could write a novel about any subject, what would it be? Just the subject, don't give away any plot ideas.
I had to sit and think hard about this one. Like Katrina, I am a voracious reader, usually having several books on the go at one time. But to write my own? That's a whole other kettle of fish.
In order to answer that I guess I would have to write about what was interesting to me at the time. Which means that if you asked me this question a year from now, the answer might change. The subject would have to hold my interest through the hours of research required, and to build a whole story around it.
I think at the moment I would like my novel to be about something to do with a stolen biblical treasure that the hero or lady hero (the other word for said lady gets edited) would have to track down. (I'm assuming it's a fiction novel the question is about). They would have to retrace steps of an event in the bible through the Holy Land and surrounding countries, then probably back to Canada all the while running into skeptical sounding characters and of course, the bad guy probably who was working for some government trying to sell the something to some other country. Okay, reading that it sounds really silly, but I can't think of anything else at the moment.
Unlike Katrina, I will not be brave enough to put a paragraph of above mentioned book up for you all to read. I think I'm totally in this mode of thinking because I'm reading a book about an archeologist finding both Noah's ark and the Ark of the Covenant with of course bad guys trying to shut him down and a really cool documentary we watched on the weekend called "The Exodus Decoded". Check back in a year and depending on what my mind is on and we'll see what I come up with.
By the way, for you bibliophiles, that picture at the top is actually a table. Yes a table with a secret drawer. You can buy it here.
