Need an idea for NaLaWriMo in November? Try the elevator pitch method of combining two genres or fictional works. My current example (which people seem to like on Facebook) is “French revolution ‘Allo Allo’”. You can see it immediately: a harried cafe owner with a complicated life, trying to help escaping nobles (or maybe colourful visiting English heroes) while avoiding Madame Gullotine. While trying to make a franc on the side from stolen artwork or something.
Or maybe “Star Wars Cascablanca”? A bar on an occupied world, some people with Rebel sympathies, an escaping spy and corrupt local authorities, plus the Imperial secret service.
Anyone want to suggest any more? And ideally write them in November?
