sareini: Official NaNo participant icon (NaNoWriMo)
Ok, scratch yesterday's idea. It was deeply fun and all, but I don't think I would have been able to find the momentum to carry it all the way through.

This is my new plot idea:

"A teenage boy, recently released from a mental hospital, survives an attack from a serial killer and discovers that he now has a mental link to the killer - seeing what he sees and the like. With nobody believing him for obvious reasons, he takes it upon himself to try to warn the killer's potential victims and stop the killer himself."

There's a fair bit of The Eyes of Laura Mars in there, and I keep seeing the Corinthian standing in for the killer so far so something may be done with that... as well as some other stuff I haven't identified yet... we will also leave until later the discussion as to why I always seem to use the same characters/character types in my stuff (I have a theory, but it's long and complicated and rather weird, plus I have to think on it some more).

Seen... in several places:

These are the top 106 books most often marked as "unread" by LibraryThing's users (as of today). As usual, bold what you have read, italicise what you started but couldn't finish, and strike through what you couldn't stand. The numbers after each one are the number of LT users who used the tag of that book.

Books, books, books... )

This list tells me two things: One, that I rarely if ever fail to finish a book after I've started it, regardless of my feelings about it (borne out by my pile of books by my bead that I've recently finished/re-read, which includes several Dean Koontz books which I didn't enjoy but read all the way through, dammit!, and a Necroscope book; and two, I really need to read more. About half that list had me going, "Yes, I've always mean to read that..."
