I want to write a book!

I want to write a book, but I don't want to write the opening paragraph. Opening paragraphs suck, and mine will too. Editors will cringe at my sophomoric efforts.

Also, I don't really want to think of a plot. Can you try to pass 300 pages of stream-of-consciousness-as-book?

I would gladly steal anyones opening paragraphs they aren't using, any takers??

I think it sounds perfect. Can we collaborate? It will be the most abominable tripe in recorded history but I will take care of the opening paragraph and of course take all the criticisms for how poor, unoriginal and derivative it is. We'll just babble, no editing for 600 pages. Insipid three page paragraphs, you about governmental conspiracy theories and the perks of communism and me about sex and drugs. If we really want to be recognized in the national art circles we'll sporadically intermix each other's pages so that the entire book makes no sense at all. We'll be visionaries.

I love your idea of mixing paragraphs, we would only have to write half as much now!
