plan my next novel!

I’m going to do NaNoWriMo again this year, and in a personal first, I’m not going to dedicate it to working on my long-suffering scifi novel.  I’m going to be true to the spirit of the thing and write something entirely new, starting on November 1, 2006 and ($DEITY willing) finishing on November 30.

Here’s the thing…I have no idea what I want to write about, or even what genre I want to write in.

What do you think I should do?  Suggestions for genre, plot, characters, etc. all welcome.
(FYI: I was a mystery buff as a teenager, enjoy most science fiction, read very little “literary fiction” but a LOT of nonfiction, and apparently have some sort of weird gift for writing high fantasy.)

  1. Yay nanowrimo! I’ll be writing like crazy next month too 🙂

    My favourite story ideas lately all seem to be post-apocolyptic or take place in a largely empty world. Maybe you could do something in that vein? Failing that, high fantasy with some fresh ideas would be fun.
