Tell me if this sounds interesting.
I'm currently taking a creative writing class in which one of the assignments is to write a 50,000 word novel in the span of 30 days (so basically, NaNoWriMo in February). This is my current working idea for my novel.
A band of supernatural miscreants (I call them 'leechers,' since they can sap or drain life force/energy from a living being) seeks to gain power and control in order to rise against prejudice directed towards their kind. They seek to do this by conducting a heist against a man who has recently (perhaps through questionable means) come to wealth and influence. In order to get an 'insider,' they hire a disillusioned young woman (who is not a leecher) to stage a romance with this man.
All of this would take place in a fictional, Victorian-esque, steam-punkish (even though I kind of dislike that label) world.
Tips? Suggestions? Any major flaws you see? I'm trying to keep it relatively high action so I don't lose interest and always have something to write about if I get stuck.
