Title: NaNo 2011 Dare/s needed
Post by: Deklitch Hardin on 03 November 2011, 09:47:16
Hi all!

I am looking for dares to include in my NaNo Novel for this year.

One's I've received so far are

- Start a chapter with the words Mundane fact number one
- Include someone being surprised by a reptile emerging from their underwear with much hilarity ensuing
- Write a death scene of at least 3k words. The death scene cannot be due to old age or a medical issue, but rather it needs to be either a murder or an accident of some kind

I've already done the first of these (it was rather straight forward, and fitted in nicely with my story at that point :D

I've got an idea for Dare 3 ... as I've already earmarked one of my characters (the lover of another character, the older sister of a second character, and loved by at least two more characters) to die.

Anyway ... I'm looking for more dares ... and I thought you guys might have some for me.

Oh ... I'm alread at over 5000 words this year ... only 45000 to go :D

Have a character go horribly insane in true lovecraftian fashion.

Hi Dek,

I don't quite know what kind of novel you're writing, so I've got three scenarios for you, from which I dare you to pick one.

1. A werewolf has a toothache, and tries to get seen by a dentist.

2. A major character receives a letter written in his own hand, post-stamped yesterday, which he has no recollection of writing.

3.A music producer and his CEO discuss a strategy for marketing their new steampunkrock boy band to teenagers in Brisbane.


Good luck with the novel!

Try to implement the following:

A couple of adventurers ending up in a time loop because they try to save an image of their own trapped selves, not realizing that they are causing the time loop in the first place due to the attempt of trying to save themselves... :)
