novel start

Writing a novel has never appealed to me as much as reading them does. But I keep coming up with random character descriptions that sound suspiciously like the first page of a story:

    She was a second millenium kinda woman: bilingual, bisexual and bipolar. Understated and medicated.
And then, nothing. Maybe I'll piece these all together and showcase them as some sort of avant garde fiction genre. And make that face that says, this is all too deep for anyone else to understand. Lest someone ask me to explain it.

OK, point taken, but I still think you should force yourself to write the novel.

Sounds like the opening sentence to a novel about your experience in Spain...

That would be fabulous...except, of course, for the bipolar part. "Bilingual, bisexual and hypersomnolent" just doesn't have the same je ne sais quoi.
