This week I’ve been working on a book with a guy known for fiction with a high body count. We do a lot of trouble-shooting in e-mail, and when we were trying to figure out a particularly vexing problem, this happened:
Bob: Let’s just kill everyone. Simple plot.
Jenny: You’ve used that one too many times.
Bob: But then they come back as zombies. Liz and Vince are the only two left.
Jenny: That’s Book Three.
Bob: And then the aliens land.
Yes, folks, that’s how we work. On a book that will have zombies and aliens over my dead body. Which Bob is okay with.
What did you work on this week?
