So I've got a new book idea. I've had it for a while --it's the reason I've been asking everyone to tell me their funniest/weirdest funeral stories (WHICH YOU SHOULD ALL NOW DO).
In the last month or so it acquired itself a setting and started to grab up other ideas -- a gravitational process that accelerates as it goes along, like a planetoid clearing an orbit. This week, thanks to a chance encounter with a Mad Magazine cartoon, it found itself a title, and with that, a theme/plot thing. And now it feels ready to start. I even told my big kid about it last night and she seems excited too.
