Wednesday Writing Exercise: NaNoPlot

November is just a month and a half away. If you're a writer, you may have heard of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). Chances are, if you're planning on doing a NaNoWriMo project, you're thinking of what to do.

If you haven't already, today's writing exercise is to come up with a couple of ideas. Later, as you investigate each, you can choose which most appeals to you.

Here are a few of my ideas, as an example:

An ordinary human woman hates the phrase "Why me?" believes that people should ask "Why not me?" instead, and becomes a hero in a world stocked with supernaturals.

Layla got turned into a frog. Now she's applying for a license to be a familiar--but when the contract ends, she'll have to choose between being a frog and staying with the wizard she loves, or marrying an arrogant prince for a kiss to be human.

Either you're born with magic or you're not. Except for Trax, that is, who used to be a rock star until his sister gave him music magic to save his life. Now a man who destroyed half the country in the name of research wants to experiment on him and steal the secret to his magic, and doesn't care if the whole world is lost in the process. To stop the mad scientist, Trax will have to master the magic that ruined his life.

What are your ideas? Which idea do you think I should try to write next?
