    My first day NoNoWriMo ended (I am in a different time zone, so it's 22.24 here now and I am stoping for today) with 2167 words. Fair enough for the first day I would think.

Cryonics could keep him alive for centuries, in orbit around the Earth, and wake him up when the cure for his disease was ready for him. Alone, and desperate, Jack signs the contract, then dies... only to wake up three thousand years later and hundreds of light-years away on a ship that's under attack and on the wrong side of a losing war. On second thought, he might have preferred the cancer.

    I plan on it being a shorter novel, so it's perfect for this event.
    That sounds awesome! I wish my ideas were that complex. I hope you share Some with us at some point! I haven't even Started writing yet do to the 3 hours of driving I did early this morning and the two photo Shoots I did today But I am hoping to get Started tonight or early tomorrow morning. I know its not A good Start to the year. But I didn't have much of a choice this year. I hope everyone else has had a good start.
    Remember to be human.

    That sounds very interesting and a lot of fun. Enjoy

    My idea at a glance.

    A writer for Ireland comes to Iowa in search of an idea/research for his new novel. He is on a 3 month work visa. He found a small town (100% made up town) with an Inn to base his book in. Upon arrival, he meets the owner of the Inn/General Store and cant help how beautiful she is. Determined not to fail at his 3 month deadline, he choses to try and stay away. But finds himself more and more attracted to her and cant keep his mind on his work.
    A small town shop keeper is in a fight with her cousin about selling their grandma's dream, the Inn. It doesnt get much business besides around the holidays. Until one day a foreign man asks for a 3 month stay. She doesnt have time for a man at the moment and needs to focus on her businesses. But they seem to be always running into each other.

    Will he chose to go home after his 3 long months in the U.S.A.? Will she keep her grandparents dream alive? Or will they let their dreams go to be with each other?

    What do you think? It's my first real try at a romance.
    Sounds good to me, work at it and see where you get.

    If it's anything like why I ended up in the USA (the first time) it could be he's working on the farms, driving trucks, combines, that sort of thing. The farm outfits still hire on workers from overseas for that as I went and did it a few years ago (in Dakota though, not Iowa).
