So I asked some friends to help me pick the subject of my next short story.

"Confessions of a Teenage ______" (fill in the blank)

They said...
Kathryn - mutant ninja turtle, bounty hunter, psychic, insomniac
Kendi - mom
Andrew - zombie, librarian, zombie librarian
David - anything but vampires.

Some intriguing ideas... What do you think? This concept could really be the seed for some great stories.
Of course, I can't use "drama queen"

or "baboon." Unfortunately.

Also off the table: martyr,


and ....

does that say Jesus Jerk? Huh.

Anyway, if you have any other suggestions for fictional teenage memoirs, please keep 'em coming!

ok, my real suggestion is "Know-It-All"

That's great! I hope you know I'm not kidding about using these ideas in future stories. This "Story A Day May" project is showing me who's boss. Ouch.

I don't know but I'm going to read that Jesus Jerk one. I often wonder what is going on in the heads of Jesus Jerks.

Rain Cloud
rs Bed (from the bed's perspective)
Offspring Attendant
Gas Bag

Ooh, I like the Jesus Jerk cover.

Kind of reminds me of the FLB book I was a teenage fairy (not that kind of fairy, either--as in the gay one!).

Lulu said...

oh wow i never would have thought some of those titles would have been used! i'm gonna go with your friend David and say anything but vampires...and throw in werewolves as well!

Mo said...

How about:
Drug Lord
Bed Wetter

The last of which I am still trying to out grow...

Mo said...

Scratch my insomniac...I somehow missed that one when reading ;D
