Max needs ideas

This could be the start of a dream come true. I have been in contact with an organisation that is considering giving me a grant to write. This would mean that I could quit work to devote myself to writing full-time for at least a few months. The catch, however, is that they want me to come up with an idea for a novel or some other full-length work. Non-stop blogging, for whatever reason, does not meet their criteria for a grant.

My plea to you, fellow bloggers and anonymous readers, is for proposals of ideas. What do you think Max should write about? What would you want to read? All ideas will be considered, and credit will be given for anything I use.

Thank you for your help.

I have documented many stories of my life. You could write an unauthorized biography on me. Call it, "Living the Joke"

A coffee table book about poo. So you could have a chapter called:

Corn: Don't worry, you'll see it again.

or one called:

Bran - The Great Equalizer

A book on practical jokes would be entertaining.

i think you should travel around the country and write down little sayings that are scribbled inside of bathrooms. call it potty humor.
