OMG! NaNoWriMo starts TONIGHT at midnight! Somehow it didn't occur to me until JUST NOW that this is the last day of October. :D

I AM SO NOT PREPARED FOR THIS!!!!!! I don't even have the tiniest HINT of a plot!

Which, of course, is the best way to get started. ;)

I have CHARACTERS galore... But no plot, really. Other than 'school'.

Bah... no plot is good.

That way your mind is clear to write about the NaNo characters of the year! (I know it was lesbian pirate ninjas one year...)

You and me, both! It should be interesting!

I have 2 plots and characters with no names, wee!

I thought I had something solid and then someone pointed out that it sounded like a Sidney Sheldon (sp?) book. I looked it up on Amazon...Sidney stole my nano!

Sends Mama Rexy after meany-poopoo-head Sidney Sheldon.

Then again, if your plot resembled something written by him, maybe it's better off if you go in a different direction. :D (He's not a favorite, although to be fair, that's mostly based on the gawdawful mini-series' they've made, more than on the books themselves).

Still. *shakes fist in Sheldon's general direction*

Have fun! Wish I were going to be joining you.

And if you need a good opening scene, how about having your MC kidnapped on page one? That could go all sorts of good places. :-D

Look, no plot is no problem. It's all in the characters. Make up some interesting characters and you the writer merely walk along beside them and record what they do in bed together. Then you rake in the royalties and clean up on the movie rights.
