NaNo 2009?

Sorta kinda bouncing ideas around for what I want to write about this year. I know, I know, it's way early, but I hardly prepped at all last year and it SUUUCKED. So I'm prepping earlier this year and it might NOT suck as much. :)

Thus far I have the following ideas:
  • Mirii and Sei? (I'unno, they seem to be my main NaNo pair :P)

  • Slipstream (grown up), Celerity and Fred - no Seekers (apart from abstract mentions), because that way I can use the story without worrying too much about copyright-y issues. :)

  • Chameleonic aliens - the enemy, omg. These might be who the spider!Kitties were fighting? Or something.

  • Invisibility

  • Shapeshifting?

  • Alien deserts (like Libyan desert) - opportunity for flashbacks! (As in, Seem refuses to cross it.)

  • Cities with giant towering skyscrapers

  • Car transporters

  • Alleyways and sewers and low broken undergroundy levels of cities

Until November (when it all starts off), I'm accepting ideas from people, the weirder the better. Pictures, phrases, words, concepts, whatever.
All to go on...

The ideas board!
Where I'm sticking interesting pics and scribbling phrases and generally putting all the rubbish that I COULD possibly add...
NaNoBoard NaNoBoard. IDEAS 2009! Yeah, basically it's a big sheet of paper I'm writing crap all over, and sticking pictures to.
Woo, I guess? Anyway, yeah. As ever, throw ideas at me. :) SILLY IDEAS TOO. I can't guarantee I'll use 'em but I need a bigger stock to draw from.

NaNoBoard This is the whole thing. It's not very exciting, just a big A2-ish-size sheet of card.

Example-y flashback-y bit?
     "That for us?" he wondered, sleepily, examining the shimmering pool of cool, soothing fuel at their feet. "That for us, Dack? Make refuel?"
     The rumble of his uncle's deep voice was a soothing purr on his overheating systems. "I think that'll make you sick, Spark," he replied, sadly, dabbling his big fingers and analysing a little droplet of it. "It's just salty water."
     The little one sighed, disappointedly, venting scorching air out of his air conditioners. He was hot and hurty and this silly hot sandy place was already making him feel sick...

And some DOOODLES (pics under cut)
Aww, Sadlerity is sad. *pets*
Edit: NB those are her cheek-flashes, not OMG BIG ANIME TEARSSS

Tiny woooorlds And the tiny world! It's not actually that tiny, it's just a tiny pic. :) The top half is the "civilised", colonised, terraformed half, the bottom half is still controlled by the native tribes. The desert keeps them separated; at least, the "civilised" side can cross it, but don't want to, the natives want to, but (generally) can't. :P

You could try to finish last year's story, but that'd be considered cheating. :> Still, I hope you finish it someday.

I could finish it, but that wouldn't stop it sucking. :(

Aww, I still enjoyed it and was curious how it would have turned out, even if it wasn't going to be a full-length novel Oh well. *hugs*

Oooohhhh, shiny ideas! All of them sound good to me.

I'm particularly curious about the invisibility and shapeshifting, but that's mostly, because one makes me think of Mirage and the other of my RPG character.

*lol* In truth, I was thinking of working ALL of them in there somewhere anyway. ;) I just don't want to forget all the ideas I'm having.

XD There's so many to choose from...and I can't form a coherent thought at the moment.


I will later though! I just have to go through my taxes fiiiirst.

Now it's time to go see what TF toys are at Target get cat food.

Oh, they weren't CHOICES, as such, just the start of my list of "Random ideas to include, lolz!" Because I try to accumulate a list of things to try and put in, and then try to include ALL of them. Although I still don't think this is as quite as good a list as my OMG Maya Steampunk Alien-Princess Giant-worm Devourer Alien-prehistory Geysers Story of 2007. ;)

TAXESSSS. Not gonna include that, sorry! MIIIGHT put Firewire in there, though. Could be why Seemy's all RAR and chasing all across a million other worlds.

Yay toyss!

I was baaad. They were on sale. And they had a TF:Animated Jazz and Prowl. XD;


(Oh...god...okay, um...so I may have to scan a couple of pages from the Spotlight:Drift comic I just got. IT MAKES ME WANT TO WRITE A PERCEPTOR MOSAIC. WHYYYYYYY

...I know someone on Devart who does mosaics and I know likes Perceptor...maybe I'll run it by her and see if it's something she's interested in XDDD *like she needed MORE to write*
Apr. 9th, 2009 11:34 pm (UTC)
Sounds cool, although it's a shame you can't include canon characters. Yay Fred! *hugs spider!kitty* ^_^
Apr. 10th, 2009 12:35 am (UTC)
XD I second thisss. The thought of spider!kitties CREEPS ME OUT...and yet I LOVE Fred. WHY? I don't know.

Apr. 11th, 2009 11:47 am (UTC)
Fred obviously just has THE POWAH. (I have no idea WHAT power, but one of 'em...)
Apr. 11th, 2009 05:56 pm (UTC)
TEH POWAH of....being fluffy?

*pets Fred*
Apr. 11th, 2009 11:46 am (UTC)
Yeah, I think it's a shame too; it's not so much can't, because under NaNo rules I think you can write what you like, it's more that I don't want to at the moment, because I want to maybe add it to my series, so... Should be easy enough to get around it. ;)

Fred: *eeps*
