    I also decided to use the Jim Butcher story skeleton format of
    *WHEN SOMETHING HAPPENS*, *YOUR PROTAGONIST* *PURSUES A GOAL*. But will he succeed when *ANTAGONIST PROVIDES OPPOSITION*?

    I have this...

    When a local crime lord's son is bitten by a werewolf, an alchemist in prohibition-ruled Indianapolis is tasked with brewing the only potion to reverse the transformation. But will he succeed with a federal agent on his trail, a mob boss looking to expand and a Rakshasa out for revenge?

    Eh? Thoughts?

    I've got a few characters, but no idea what to do with them. I guess they could go on a quest for something. The setting is very influenced by Gamma World, WH40k, Road Warrior and various Westerns.

    I play games on ps3 and ps4. My PSN is DouglasDanger.

    Also, since I'm writing a futuristic noir-ish thing, I feel like there should be Prohibition on something. My usual fallback of "when in doubt, add dinosaurs" doesn't work here, because Prohibition of dinosaurs actually kinda makes sense as a policy, and isn't all that oppressive.

    I am going to sit down tomorrow and smash all my planning so far into bits and stick it back together in the shape of a plot.

    I swear I will have a plot outline from start to end, no matter how shitty, by the end of tomorrow.

    I absolutely will not get distracted by kittens.

    Futuristic noir with superpowers, based on Greek myth.

    So...absinthe, probably?

    dude, no

    if you're going for greek myth, wine is the only answer. Bacchus isn't the god of green licorice drank.

    My "crew" & I from college are meeting up this weekend at our university.

    We will pay tribute to Bacchus.

    We will touch the stars and let our spirits loose in the wild.

    And very likely wake up lost, bruised and covered in vomit.

    I was looking at the Fiction Generator that was linked in the Writers Block thread, and I have to say that I am intrigued by this one:
    Your title is: “The Astropunks”

    In a coal-powered terraformed Mars, a young student of metaphysics stumbles across an arcane prophecy which spurs him into conflict with a charismatic politician on the rise, with the help of a sarcastic female techno-geek and her closet full of assault rifles, culminating in wish-fulfillment solutions to real-world problems

    You can down shots incredibly fast right before you get ready to jump on that cask.

    MEAD! Do it, although I've only had it once and wasn't a fan.

    The past two times I've done my best writing with rum and cider so that's probably what I'll do again, with some beer days thrown in because I like beer.

    hehehe

    last year's NaNo novel began with shotgunning an entire margarita at the bar which was our hurricane "relief" center down the street during Sandy
    (they were one of the first places that got power back after that)

    it produced some of my favorite most-likely-unusable Delta Sector content I have ever written, and oh god I went back and read it while I was still contemplating ReWriMo as a "revise lightly LOL" thing. And I still love that chapter so I'll have to make someone else cut it out for me when the time comes.

    I don't want to cut it out on my own. ha.

    So I have nowhere to post this, so I'll do it here.

    My apartment complex throws tiki parties in the summer and a Halloween party before taking a break for the entire year. So there are maybe four parties all year. My roommates and I have gotten the reputation as, "the party guys," from the apartment staff for how much we drink, socialize and generally improve these get togethers.

    Well one of my roommates just informed me that on telling the apartment staff we wouldn't be able to attend this year's Halloween party they became very sad. And the apartment complex manager told my roommate that she was ready and willing to purchase a 1.75 liter sized bottle of Jägermeister just so we could facilitate Jager-bombs at the party.

    It has happened, we are the party lords of this kingdom.

    November is such a bad month for this.

    The XCOM expansion comes out, Doctor Who 50th, the next Hobbit movie, my Mother-in-Law's birthday, my brithday, Christmas shopping, and at least 2 if not 3 releases to get through testing.

    Why couldn't they pick a shit month when nothing happens? November is busy. It's always fucking busy. The holiday season is like right there. November is already a gorram trainwreck. Why couldn't they pick something useless, like June. Nothing ever happens in June.

    The way I see it: if you can get through a busy month like November with 50,000 words under your belt, you're proving you could do it anytime, under any circumstances

  • Brovid HasselsmofBrovid Hasselsmof [Growling historic on the fury road] Registered User regular
    Also November is when it starts to get really cold and shitty out. Nobody wants to be stuck at their computer in June when it's sunny.

    And don't give me that "it's Summer over here in November" nonsense. That is preposterous.

    A new video game in November is what you can use for motivation. Write the words and then you can play the game. I do that with CoD, it's only mildly successful, but it's never really CoD that messes me up.
