    mumbled "how does one do nanowrimo with no ideas?"

    So I'm participating in NaNoWriMo this year, as I've done every year for the past three years, and I have a bit of a problem that I wasn't anticipating...

    I have no novel inspiration.

    School and life has just sucked the creative energy from me and I can't seem to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and write without feeling utterly deflated halfway through the first sentence.

    What do?

    I would lurk on various writerly sites and character quizzes and prompt things and such until you find one thing that excites you - like one character or one place or one random line from the middle of the story you haven't written yet, then just go with it and base your entire thing off that and see if you can ramble for 50,000 words lol

    ^Sounds like a good idea xD
    Or go through your really old/unfinished work and see if there's something you like the idea of playing around with and writing about for nano?
