A Requested Present

My father-in-law has asked for an 80th birthday present from my wife. He wants her to write a novel. She has eighteen months. Go.

Jenny said, "I don't characters. I don't have plots. I don't have time" I responded, "Boo hoo." I started my novella from crap, threw most of the characters out, rewrote it a few time, and did all that in 30 minutes per day.

When it comes to stories, Jen is unfairly advantaged. I must think up plot. She wakes up from dreams with full novels running through her head. Damn, I wish my ideas were that good.
