well - I back - sorta

At least for a few months considering I've been dragged kicking and screaming into committing to the madness that is naNoWriMo.

*whimper*

Any suggestions or tips (other than back slowly away from the keyboard) will be greatly appreciated.

Zombies!!! That's what I've left out....

I'm honestly not taking it seriously (this year).

I've read the site and stolen No plot? No Problem! from Mel Redcap.

The original working title was:

"The World's Worst Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Anthropomorphic, Lovecraftian Detective Novel Ever"

and through many evolutions has grown to:

"The World's Worst Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Anthropomorphic, Lovecraftian Detective Novel Ever Written On Glorified Electronic Toilet Paper, With Brief Sojourns Into Historical Romance In The Wild Wild West!! Or The Dice Really Are Singing To My Brain And Wooing Me Into Writing A Fifty Thousand Words Plus Novel For The National Novel Writing Month, Starring Big Eyed Caped Avengers From Japan Fighting Radioactive Thousand Year Old Mummies!!!"

I still have to add Shakespeare, Slash & Ancient Gods/Relion in.

Now I have to figure George A Romero in...

I've worked out that if I throw all the themes into a bag and pull one out each day - I'm going to have a good cackle!

I don't think the 50,000 words are supposed to be all in the title, dear.

Have fun with it!

No-one said it couldn't!!!

Besides, I might be going for the modern art type approach. You know, the blank canvas with the prestigous name...

Hey, if you add detailed chapter titles you could really go places: "In Which our hero corners the evil overlord in the basement, suffers a reversal of fortune, and with great daring and aplomb, assumes the position before ..."

and what about vampires and revolting peasant uprisings?

Vampires come under Historical Romance (Dracul & Mina) and uprisings under singing (Young Frankenstein)

PS - does it have to be a G&word?

Or just poison of choice?

And this doesn't mean I've started writing - just been taking notes of poss ideas/plot, char names etc

You joined in with no idea what to write? Woah.... Why the pressure?

Well, I'd say you might want to choose a world you allready know and go for fanfic. Darkover, HArry Potter, whatever strikes your fancy. And if it doesn't happen.... well... nothing lost, eh?

And a certain mailing list we have in common - WILL be featuring. I will be changing names of course. I like my head where it is!
