NaNoWriMo: Preparation

I didn’t even know about National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) until just before it began last year. At the time, I didn’t have enough of a solid idea for a book. So I decided to do it this year.

Now the problem is it that I have several ideas but I’m not sure which one to follow through with.

Some of my ideas include:

  • A spy thriller in a fantasy setting
  • A story about a man marrying a succubus
  • The first installment of an epic fantasy series
  • The histories and/or holy text of a fictional universe
  • A story about demon hunters
  • An action thriller about uncovering conspiracy theories
  • A book of poetry and/or haikus
  • Real life advice from father to son

There were more, but I’ve narrowed it down to the ones listed above.

I could potentially combine some of the concepts of the fiction ideas into one solid book.

My dear readers, what I write is for you to read. What direction do you think I should go in? I would love to hear from you. Please leave a comment with your thoughts. Thank you!


  1. I think “A story about a man marrying a succubus” sounds the most interesting. It would be interesting to see how their relationship is the same as or different from a “normal” marriage of two humans.

    But you could go crazy writing something like that, because I believe demons like to trick people and mess with their minds. So watch out for that one.

  2. Three To Write About:

    1. One of the above topics.

    2. Another choice of topic.

    3. How difficult it is to choose a topic, for a novel.
    To have the determination and the will-
    To finally name and hammer out that novel.


  3. Go with them all. Why stop at one?? Alternatively you could write
    A spy thriller in a fantasy setting, the first installment of an epic fantasy series about a man marrying a succubus, an action thriller uncovering conspiracy theories, the histories and/or holy text of a fictional universe and demon hunters, a book of of poetry and/or haikus, including
    real life advice from father to son. There


      • We won’t go into the other bit of that saying, the sort of opposite view. Good on yah for combining though. Project Exodus has a ring to it. I Love coming by your blog. You share nicely about everything and not just your writing.

      • Thank you very much! The originally slogan of this blog was “A writer’s blog about everything except writing.” It had started as more of a personal blog, but has slowly evolved into focusing more on writing. I used to write a post every day, but then life got in the way. Sooner or later I’ll post on a regular basis again. Once I figure out what the point of this blog is.

  4. Hee hee…never mind the point, you got a great mix here. poetry, writing, family and personal things and a great way with words, so why worry? May life not get in the way too much–just enough! Have a great weekend you and your family.

    • Ah well thank you for appreciation how eclectic my blog is. Sadly, my family has been disbanded and I’m getting divorced. Which is probably why I haven’t written that much personal lately. I’d rather focus on the positives in my life, such as my forthcoming novel.
      Have a great weekend yourself!
