  • Well, sorta. You (and a few other tech people I know who also work on -- or think about working on -- novels) were part of the inspiration for a song I wrote (not yet recorded) called "Ideas for My Novel." A portion:

    There's this guy who lives and works at home
    He types all day, talks on the phone
    One day he looks o'er his computer screen
    He peers at the people across the street

    Then something happens, I'm not sure what
    It's not important to the story, but
    It makes him think about his life
    About his kids and second wife
    About how the Earth revolves 'round the Sun
    How good and bad are in everyone

    Chorus:
    I've got a few pages written already
    And I'm working on it every Thursday night
    The plot is coming 'long real well
    I just need to get the characters right
