So I'm going to spend November posting more, probably in lieu of NaNoWriMo, because I just wrote over 7300 words in one day and basically that has proven (to me, anyway) that I'm an awesome writer enough that I don't feel like I need to do NaNo. Also I think I'm going to have two exams. SOOO eff that. I'll see, but posting daily in November is a much better backup plan.

I've seen a lot of 30-day memes going around the Circle/FList - there's one on video games, one on "tell me about yourself", one on religious beliefs, and another kind of random one, just off the top of my head - and I like all of them but wouldn't be able to choose one.

So, because I am dumb, I think I'll have more fun turning it over to you crazy people.

So here's the game:

  1. I've got a list from 1-30 here, for the 30 days in November I'll be blogging.

  2. Leave a comment with a topic you'd like to see me cover. Anything is fair game, and I mean it: things you don't know about me. Fandom opinions. My real feelings on X/Z. Rants on grad school. Talking about my job. Makeup Batman's beauty tips. My thoughts on religion. Pretty much anything that's a fair blog topic - just make sure it's something I can do something with.

  3. I'll update the list as people come up with stuff, in the order it's commented. There'll be one master list; comments on DW and LJ both count. Anybody can comment - use OpenID on my DW, or do it anonymously.

  4. Since I'm actually not arrogant enough to think 30 people will comment with great ideas (despite what you may think...!), yeah, you can definitely leave more than one suggestion. Just do me a favor and space them out a bit - wait until somebody else comments, so that I'm not doing Drakon for seven days in a row? letting someone monopolize the blog.

  5. The list will stay up until it's full.

  6. Come 01 November, I'll start with the first topic and then move on through. If I miss a day (like for Thanksgiving maybe) I'll post two the next. The end!

You have an ereader, right? How about a post on that, and your thoughts on people's weird aversion to them? (I mean, I've been told that even my mother, who can't read print books anymore, is horrible and wrong for having an ereader. For some reason.)

Why are you in fandom! How did you get here! Did you learn anything about yourself from/through being in fandom? For example, did you discover any kinks? =D (And, if you feel comfortable sharing, what are they!)

I will come and tell you my answers when this day comes up, if it will help =D

If you won the lottery and could only do 3 things what would you do?

What's your favourite legend / mythology?

If you could meet one character from literature (classical, contemporary, wherever!) who would it be?

Cheers!

I WILL HAVE MY REVENGE UPON YOU

but for serious:

Something you're ashamed to have done, and something you're proud to have done.

Also:

Talk about your creative growth/development. How have you changed as a writer since (whenever)? How's the art? The photography? TELL ME THINGS.

NEVER GONNA GIVE YOU UP

I don't know if this is the right way to do this, but here we go: Write about your kitties. In detail. What they mean to you, what sorts of antics they get into, why you love them so much, and about each one's personality.

On being legally blind.

How do you cope with it? When did you first find out? Did it progressively get worse, or was it always like this? Do you have fears that it will get worse as you get older? Does it make you feel kind of special, in a weird way? (like, how many people in their twenties can say that they're legally blind? It's kind of cool)
