And as October ends, leaves fall and November awakens...
The Presidential Horror Show: http://davechase.net/presidential_horror_show.swf (Link from porsupah)

Ugh, I'm not ready for NaNoWriMo. I have yet to decide where to even start, much less where I'll be going.

Japanese Chapter Quiz tomorrow, Chem hour exam wednesday, birthdays at the end of this week.

Class registration also starts tomorrow and aside from core classes, I'm not sure what else I want....

NaNo ID: Viktaren
NaNo since: 2003

Working title: N/A
WIP Genre: Fantasy. Got to have magic.

AT THE START: DO YOU...
Have an Outline? Ahahahaha, I wish.
Scene-by-scene? See above.
Know how it starts? ...Mmmm, I really need to work on this.
Know how it ends? Yes, happily.
Have your climax in order? Who's climaxing?
Know your main characters yet? Knowing me, probably a guy, a girl, and several animals.
Have a particular tone in mind? There will be humor. Well, hopefully anyways. Mmmm, I'd probably aim for the Golden Compass typed "tone" if anything at all, but....
Plan to Draw on your own experiences? Without a doubt. It's how I usually write.

IS YOUR WORK GOING TO BE:
Funny? Hopefully.
Serious? Possibly, in areas.
Sad? Mmmm, given that I'll be writing something longer than I've ever written before, yes.
Semi-Autobiographical? There's a good chance there....
Based on another story? Most likely many other stories.
Influenced by any authors/current publications? Nnnnn, probably not.

HOW HAVE MUCH YOU PLANNED? HAVE YOU USED:
A paper journal? Ah hah hah... no.
Pens? Nah.
Multicolored pens? Mmm, pretty colors~ but no.
A computer? Yes.
Index cards? ^^;; no.
Lists? Nope.
Bulleted lists? Nope.
Plot Charts? Never made one in my life. See, the point is, I don't follow my own plans very well... so it's kinda pointless to do something like that.
Character Charts? Nope
Character formulas? Ehhhhhh... what?
Favorite writing resource: Other fantasy books.

ODDS AND ENDS
A line you would like to use: ....
A scene you would like to include: Moonlight
A concept you would like to explore: Love
A cliche you would like to avoid: Mmmmmmm, I dunno. Don't care.
A character you would like to use: A Talking Cat. As usual.

FORWARD THINKING
Do you expect to be able to complete it? ATM? Nah. Bad mindset, I know.
Do you intend to complete it? If I don't finish it during November? Doubtfully.
Could you ever try to publish it? I'd love to, you know. But would it ever happen, with the level that I write at? Nahhhh.

*hugs* But that's why you keep writing and why you edit...so you can improve your writing and get to the point where you are publishing. Doesn't have to be a full-time job and definitely doesn't have to be your only job. I know I'll be a writer but I never, ever want to get to the point where I'm just writing. I couldn't do that.
