30 days of...

November is fast approaching, and you know what that means: NaBloWriMo. (Which I should probably start calling something else, since the "official" event seems to have moved to October. But I've always been a terrible creature of habit.) I've never done traditional NaNo, mostly because of the time commitment, and given that I'm still frantically wrapping up my first [community profile] megaflare_ff draft, I especially can't commit to it this year. But I do enjoy posting every day in November. Normally, I make vague plans to post about specific things and a ficbit or two, but this year, I'm going to try something different. I'll be doing a 30 Days Of meme, but with a twist stolen from blatantly copying ganked from [personal profile] seventhe: instead of the questions coming from a predetermined list, you all are going to tell me what to write about. It's like a drabble meme, but for posting!

The Rules:

1. I have created a numbered list, 1-30, for each day in November.

2. You (and this offer is open to anyone) will comment with a question to answer or a topic to write about. Any subject is fair game: fandom, media, politics, my personal life, whatever. (I do reserve the right to obfuscate a bit if the topic is one I wouldn't normally post about unlocked. Very few things come under this heading, though. In general, I prefer to avoid revealing details about my family or my workplace. I'm good with most anything else.)

3. I will put your question/topic on the list, in the order it was received. Commenting is open on both LJ and DW; feel free to comment on either entry, with an account, or OpenID, or even anonymously. I'll create a single list, compiled from the comments on both entries.

4. Like Sev, I don't really expect 30 different people to leave a question! So feel free to ask for more than one topic, but try to spread them out over different comments so I don't end up with multiple requests by the same person in a row.

5. Starting on November 1st, I'll answer one question per day, in order, until I get to the end on November 30th.

6. ???

7. Profit!

Here's the list!

  1. Why I love the 2010 San Francisco Giants! self-selected/response
