NaNo YWP - Good/Gross Books

One of the things we did for the NaNo Young Writer's Program was to brainstorm lists of things good and dull books might have. You may well guess that my boys and my girls have very different ideas of what makes a "good" book. So, with no further ado, I present the lists.

Great books might have:
  1. Guns
  2. Princesses
  3. Happy Endings
  4. Aliens
  5. Sharks eating people
  6. War
  7. Seagulls talking
  8. Obedience
  9. Page numbers
  10. Magic Spells
  11. Coloring
  12. People
  13. Action
  14. Heroes
  15. Space
  16. Vampires

Gross Books Might have:
  1. Boring parts, like love
  2. Bad wars
  3. Killing
  4. Evil pumpkins
  5. Evil monkeys
  6. Gypsies
  7. Dull storylines
  8. Whiny characters
  9. Boring titles
  10. Boring covers
  11. No adventure
  12. No problems

I like the idea of evil gypsy pumpkin monkeys who whine a lot and are in love :).

BTW, thank you for you note and the nano sticker and pin! The stickers are on my computer and the 'novelist' pin is on my purse :).

Is it wrong to still be proud of the fact I did it lol?
