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!

How different types of weather make you feel.

Blog something about arts & crafts! Your favorite one to do, traumatic childhood experiences with glitter and macaroni, whatever

If you had the chance to do the most absolute crazy, adrenaline pumping thing you could, what would it be and why?

Why are your top five favorite characters your top five favorite characters? Get psychological and analytical, but preferably not psychoanalytical, because that jut gets way too weird way too ofetn.

What do you think of WikiLeaks? What do you think of its creator/leader Julian Assange?

Some resources to consider: BoingBoing, Wikipedia. But as a librarian and a woman of articulate and thoughtful opinion, I trust you'll do further research than easy top hits from a search engine. ;)

Take your time. Response is optional. Just thought of this, on, of course, the last day of this month!
