I think I'm going to do NaNo, which means starting today. Of course it also means figuring out something to write about--I am leery of this because it seems these days I can't finish 1,000 words, let alone 50,000, but the rest of the household is doing it and maybe that's incentive enough. If I have to wait to watch The Wire anyway... I have a few ideas that might stretch that far, though none are "original" fiction. (I did once have a roleplay character who was sort of based on a male version of Carlotta as played by Orson Welles who got turned into a werelynx, but I do not know what that novel would be about.)

Anyway, the two fannish ideas I've had that might be novels are:

1) A sort of mash-up of Phantom of the Opera and Sunset Boulevard, wherein Erik=Norma, Christine=Joe, and I get to deal with gender reversal as well as the noir setting and Hollywood and all that.

2) A TOS Star Trek fic with time travel, sort of like if The Time Traveler's Wife was about Kirk and Spock and Kirk kept popping in and out of Spock's life and he had to deal with covering for Kirk as well as dealing with the out-of-joint nature of their relationship.

The problem with either is that I started them, and didn't get past basic logistic note-taking before I decided they wouldn't work or were too hard, and at this point I can't exactly remember the point of either.

This... is not an auspicious beginning.

ETA: Well. That lasted six whole hours!
