Out of Breath

Tagged again (by Michelle Pendergrass). Apparently I have no idea where base is. But this one is simple.
The novel you want to write: A twenty-something dealing with the dearth of dreams, stuck in a mind-numbing job that has nothing to do with her college degree. Speaking of college, there are all those bills. Her best friend, who recently discovered she has AIDS. They set out on a road trip across the U.S., falling in love with the country, rediscovering dreams and their true meaning, and learning how to live in an evil but beautiful world.
Oh, wait. That is the novel I'm writing.
(Side note: this is not my official "pitch." In fact, I'm scrounging. I would love your suggestions. Hint, hint, nudge, nudge.)
I'm tempted to not tag, since I tagged yesterday, but what the heck. I'll tag two who were not tagged yesterday: Josh and Tran.
By the way, I have been asked to post my philosophy of aesthetics. Being a musician and a writer, I'm looking forward to this. It's just taking me a while to get my thoughts together in one succinct blurb. I'm going to try to have it up tomorrow.

I'm not even remotely sure how to answer this one at all so please don't be dissappointed if I don't do this one.

Sure, I'd love to write a book but I don't know what it would be. Especially if it were fiction.

Sounds like a fun read! Here from M. Pendergrass' blog.

Wow! If I cursed I would say something like, “Holy *insert curse word*! I found a kindred spirit.” But I don't, so I'll just say this: I would definitely read your book. Definitely. A mind-numbing job that has nothing to do with the college degree; college loans; traveling across America. I must read this book.

Such good writing.
