YAY, the NaNoWriMo site has been relaunched! Though this year they didn’t wipe the forms, which I have mixed feelings about. On one hand it’s nice that all those threads aren’t gone, but on the other hand it was nice to have the forums wiped so we could start fresh and clean. But either way I’m happy about the relaunch! ^___^

Taken from the Adopt a Plot Thread

The To-do list
It is the middle of summer, and MC (I had him\her as a teenager, but almost any age will work) is home alone, (or with a sibling or two) most of the time. (because their parents are at work). One day MC wakes up and finds a To-Do list on the kitchen table. They assume that it was written by one of their parents, so they do all the stuff on the To-Do list. This happens every day for most of the summer. One day, near the end of the summer, they find out that it wasn’t written by their parents. They don’t actually know who it’s written by. They start to try and figure out who is writing the lists and why.

(The ending for this could be a number of things. Maybe one of their neighbors saw that they were bored. Maybe someone needed something built for them. You can figure out your own ending to this)

Ok, I think I have found this years NaNo novel plot. I’ve given it some thought and this is totally the start of some sort of creepypasta……which I really read too many of. Well, not really read, more like listen to MrCreepyPasta’s readings while drawing. 
But anyway, I think I could do something with this plot. At the very least it has kept my interest for more than a couple of days, so I might as well go with it and start outlining.

On a separate note maybe I could make this my NaNo novel. What would it be about? I have no idea… but it would be something to work with at least. *shrugs* dunno….

Less than a month till NaNoWriMo and I have no idea what I’m going to write. None. Every time I think of something I might want to write I just lose interest almost immediately… I’ve thought about doing a re-write of some of my older stories but argh, I don’t want to deal with it. I just feel so uninspired lately….. But I have been keeping a notebook of random story ideas I’ve been coming up with so that if I ever feel like I can flesh out the ideas in the future I will at least have those.
But for this November….. I don’t know. I was thinking about writing a Sailor Moon fan-fiction since I was sure the new Sailor Moon Crystal series would get me in the mood for fan-fiction writing….but it hasn’t. Part of the reason is the 2 week gap between episodes, it just kills the momentum. Also the fact that the Shitennou are still alive adds to me not having any desire to write fan-fiction. See, long ago when I first started watching Sailor Moon the thing that prompted me to start writing fan-fiction in the first place was Jadeite’s death. Yeah, I was one of those weird girls that liked that bad guys more than the good guys and Jadeite was my freaking favorite character in the first 10 or so episodes of the show…. but then he DIED! So yeah….. I’m actually REALLY happy that Jadeite didn’t die in Sailor Moon Crystal, along with the rest of the Shitennou (OMG new anime, please address the past life relationships between inner Senshi and Shitennou) However while the new series has granted my fan-fiction girl dreams more than I ever thought possible, it also hasn’t inspired me to write any sort of fan-fiction…. I mean, there really isn’t any point at this point in the story. Maybe if Chibi-Usa shows up (possible but unlikely) I’ll feel the need to write my ‘Chibi-Usa is kidnapped as a baby by an evil entity who raises her as it’s own, telling her that her mother abandoned her AND then years later becomes the bad guy of the season’ fic.
But…. getting back to my point, I have nothing that I’m even remotely interested in writing at the moment.
