Joint Venture - Dog Shelter - Novel
Kind of a Long Story. We can explain later once the campaign is actually set up and running.
Basically, an Idiot Savant US Citizen falls in love with Europe and with multiple European women shortly after he arrives in Vienna, Austria to attend a European Society of Radiology meeting back in March of 2017. It is a pretty complicated story really.
One of those women, a Ukrainian woman working in Vienna, Austria and the Idiot Savant think that writing a novel about how she wants to open up a homeless shelter for dogs in Ukraine, about how she wants to earn $100,000.00 for her parents and about why she was stupid enough to say "maybe" when he asked her to marry him is a good idea. We even had a handwritten note about that, but then threw it away because we realized how silly that idea was. Unfortunately, there is still a photo of that note floating around somewhere on the internet.
That was a dumb idea, particularly when she qualified her answer recently by saying that she would say "yes, definitely" if the Idiot Savant had $2 million dollars. I am not sure if that means before or after I write and publish the novel, probably afterward because there is no way we could raise $2 million with a GoFundMe campaign.
I figured it might be best to just start up the campaign to see if we could get something, and then go forward from there.
I should ask this character in the novel and in real life named "Juro" what he thinks. He was one of the first people who I met in Vienna, Austria, and when I first met him his hair was dyed white, and I told him that he reminded me of that mad professor in that "Back to the Future" movie series, Emmett Lathrop "Doc" Brown, Ph.D.
I have never written a novel or a memoir before, but I have written a book, a medical text book that should have never been written in the first place.
For this book, I think that maybe the best way to write it is to include some real characters for people who agree to have their real names mentioned in the book, and then to substitute fictional characters for real people who do not want to be mentioned in the book. It could be a lot of fun to write, but it is going to take some time.
It might be a good idea to split up our GoFundMe campaign into 2 separate campaigns, one for her dog shelter and for the $100,000.00 USD for her parents, and another one to support my book writing effort.
