Prompt 1: Celebrating NaNoWriMo

Did you know that November is National Novel Writing Month?

Every November since the project’s inception in 1999, hundreds of thousands of writers across the nation take part in a month-long attempt to produce their very own 50,000 novel. That’s amazing! If you want to take part, you can check out the rules on the project’s website.

With that in mind, the prompt for this weekend is: If you were to write a novel, what would it be about? Questions to consider are: What would the genre be? Title? Main characters? Setting?
