So I had this idea for a story that's the sort of book I'll never write. I think it would be perfect for someone like Jasper Fforde, but as I don't know him and he seems to have plenty enough ideas on his own, I'll offer it up here. If anyone wants it, it's yours, no strings attached. Anyway: a sleep shortage, with some evil corporation siphoning it off and selling it or making something evil out of it, or putting it into the water supply so we're all sort of half-asleep all the time and more prone to buy evil corporation's products on the Shopping Network. Sounds allegorical if you ask me. Anyway.
Now, I'm sure that some of you (yes, you) also get these sorts of ideas for things that you (yes, you) think someone could write, but that someone isn't you (yes, you). So here's the deal: post those ideas in the comments here! I called this post "Idea Exchange," but you don't have to leave an idea in order to take one. Just take it and write something good. Anyone else in on this? Anyone?
