Why my fans should start running for the hills.

I got a reminder I set last year to sign up for NaNoWriMo.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

I have to do this. Even if I don't cross the 50k mark, I have to do something, and if I don't do something soon, I will probably stop writing forever. The great thing about NaNoWriMo is that what you do doesn't have to be good, as long as you actually do it. The fact that it's official might give me impetus. Also, I want to see just how far I can get, and what my speeds are.

The final version, even if unfinished, will be put on my web site (assuming it's up, which it hasn't been up for a week, and I am not sure why). It may be bad. It may have loopholes and unfunny bits, poor sentence structure, and peppered with grammar that may make some of you cringe. It will probably be unfinished, and end either at some alarming point, or several pages past the point where it should have ended.

This won't be part of the Tony Bumper Saga, and last year I didn't want it to be related to the Punk Walrus Saga, but I am reconsidering that. So, with that in mind, I'd like to get a little direction from you guys to see what you might be interested in seeing.

Punkie should write about...

A Punk Walrus story (weird comedy), totally new plot
A comedy about a disenchanted spaceship captain, her girly engineer, and cyborg security officer who get accused of a murder most foul.
A disturbing HP-style horror story about a psychopathic college freshman, his seduction into an evil cult, and the ancient artifact that controls his destiny.
A fictional piece on one fan's quest to interview an old sci-fi fan, whose past seems elusive yet tantalizing.
Something other than else (may be explained below).

You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.
