    I made a bet with my friend that I could write a fictional novel and get it published (that it was easy to do) so at the end of the academic year and in the summer I'm going to write a novel.

    I don't want the characters to just follow plot convenience, I want them to be realistic. So I'm going to ask some of you what you would do in a specific situation, the reasons why, how you feel in a specific situation; basically you'll be the character but they won't have your name. I need to do with this with quite a few characters, so the more people who do it the better.

    I'm writing the book in like 6 months so you don't have to do anything now but be warned you'll have to answer a lot of questions come 6 months from now. You in?

    Also, anyone got any story ideas? I think I want it to be about cults, I want it to be serious and also weird, so if you give me a storyline, then let's say I give you 20% of the profit the book makes (it won't make a profit). Maybe, person told he's Jesus from birth slowly realises he's not Jesus? I don't know, that kind of sucks and I've only given 5 seconds thought to it. Someone give me a storylineee

    In my book, the protagonist takes up arms against the cult and goes after them before they can off him. Robert Deniro in Taxi Driver style mwahaha :lol:

    And I meant to say that anything well done is good in my books, so you're not so far off track with your cult idea just as long as you make them really creepy and bad and everything lol

    Theyre alright up until you tell them you dont want to join their religion, I lived with some Mormons for a while back in 2009, and they gave me the boot after I dissed some of their missionaries who came to talk to me lol
