The Great American Novel

The other day, I put up my facebook status as the following:

"I'm going to write the Great American Novel. Ready... Go."

Now this was just musing on my part. Someone had just told me that I ought to write a book, so I was just fooling around on facebook, so I decided to share my newfound goal on the internets.

This is what occurred in the form of comments below my status within the next few days:

  • Katie snorkel! With such an instrument, she could at least breathe from a different direction, and perhaps the extra distance would be just far enough away that the air would be a tad clearer of the awful stench that was sneaker man. She couldn't think! Where was she, and what was she doing there? Her senses were filled with the putrid smell, and the sense of the dark figure coming ever closer.
