Notes for Novel #1

They say that in order to write a great novel, you have to write a bit at a time, many times. So here's the first installment of my notes for that Great American/magical-realist novel I'll write someday.

Plot device: Making a living as a time-traveling spy/conman in Disneyland. Cover is blown when I try to pay my bill with a 25 cent note at the cafe under the Swiss Family Robinson tree.

Ah, *dang* there went *my* idea for my Great American novel!

Well, I suppose you can use this idea in your novel if you send me a percentage of the royalties. I have lots more ideas where this came from (though few as spectacular as this).
