NaNoWriMo: Early speculations

As I count down to midnight, I have to acknowledge that somehow October has arrived. On the positive side of this time progression thing is that NaNoWriMo is soon! :o Crazy! As you can see with my new layout, I'm getting into the spirit of things. ;) I'll also be starting octoberwriting. For the moment let's set aside the stresses of other commitments and let me ponder aloud...

At this point I'm almost certain that my NaNo will be a Mentalist fanfic. *high-fives fellow fans* (Psst, that means I need support from you guys. Spreading love of Cho/Jane, OK?) This is subject to change, but the only other thing I'm obsessing over right now is JAG and I can tell you that I would not feel comfortable writing in that fandom - I have no grasp of aviation, little understanding of the military, and would be awful trying to write appropriate legal jargon.

Story ideas are all over the place right now. When November hits, it'll be a "see what happens!" time. I do have note cards flying around my place and files saved with various prompts/quotes/dialogue snippets that are appealing. The past week I've developed a reasonable start to an amnesia!fic for The Mentalist. :o OMG my favorite trope! So that may very well be what I work on this October. (Haven't decided on my Halloween-appropriate story, though...)

A reminder that the new NaNoWriMo site will be going up sometime today (Friday)!!

I'm already missing the Milwaukee group! Such a wonderful group and I got so much work done! :o I know that the Twin Cities group is active... but my schedule's very different this year plus I have more limitations on my transportation options.

*crosses fingers* I hope we both find good groups!
