NaNo suggestions

I did this a handful of years ago - asked for prompts and suggestions for a NaNo project and it worked really, really well! I was just coming off writing the novella and was feeling tapped out in regards to story and character. I think something similar is happening now because of my three years of Idol-ing.

So, if YOU have a great idea for a character, or a story, or a setting and you're willing to gift it to me - please do so in the comments! Be as specific or as vague, brief or comprehensive as you want.

I need something to feed into the brain hopper!

TIA!

Well, it's your idea. My mind is a little weary right now, but I recall commenting on some of your idol entries that I wanted to know more about the characters and story. One I do recall was for the Invitation prompt. There were others, but Mind is running on empty.

I tried to work on my NANO prep at the Feast, but that was kind of hopeless. Need to start.

Oooh, yes! Alright, I'll add that mystery to my list. And now I have .... ONE idea on my list. Heh. :)

Two weeks to go, M. Get some rest, heal from your latest pain, and see if something doesn't surface!

I really liked the Charon and Hermes (was it?) in modern settings, and the idea of what they were doing right now.

But also... the Moon as an earthly manifestation, her laments, her history, her dreams... that seems like something you would write well, if it interests you. :)

Oooh! Thank you, K! I liked those ambulance driving guys, too! And am thrilled you remember them! Hmmmm....and a personified Moon....I LOVE THAT!

ALL THE GREEK MYTHS.

There's something about the repetitive endurance of their punishments. The slapping down of any who dare try: Icarus' daring to escape, having his wings burnt, Prometheus daring to give humans a source of heat and light- to eternally have his liver pecked out, Sisyphus forever rolling his boulder uphill. I'd be fascinated to see your modern spin on the meting out of the Gods' ire.

I'm doing a YA novel based on this;

It's a good place to find strong female characters that might get you started.
