Ok. Seemed more like an essay to me. I guess I'll try it, and most likely fail.

It's not essay. It's novel. And you win by finishing it in time.

By the way, a couple of rules apply:

1. Your original content only. No copying from Wiki to fill 50,000 words.

2. Needs to be a complete story.

3. Follow all grammar conventions of the English Language.

I think I've got my starting bit worked out - a small community has taken residence a secured and airtight bubble, painted over to lose all sense of the outside world. This is because everything that is outside has been rendered through with all sorts of nasty undocumented diseases.

I'll be refining my plot a bit more, but here's a bit I drew up just now, to see if it would work:

Quote
Jacob watched on at a safe, comfortable distance as a man wandered past the plaza, shouting madly.

"It's safe out there, I swear, oh Lord in Heaven who's Earth is clean! It's safe--"

The man's shouting was suddenly halted by a bullet in his neck, where he fell to the ground, a city guard eyeing his dead body, slowly lowering his rifle.

"Code 4, all clear. Send them in. Reporting in for decontamination."

The guard adjusted his aerator and headed off, knowing that he might full well die of what this idiot drug in with him, but safe in the fact that the town will survive. He had a look back over at the door the newly-created corpse ran through. It was at one point airtight, but a few centuries of abuse and neglect ran through it, and it looked to be more of a danger than an asset.

"And can we get someone out to patch that door?"

From what was perceived to be his safe comfortable distance, Jacob decided this was far, far too close to anything recently shot, diseased, and otherwise deadly, and dashed back the way he came.

Alright, here's my notes from workchat, irrelevant stuff omitted:

Quote
(14:18:32) sdc_tnikana: Here's my notes, as I wrote them:
(14:18:47) sdc_tnikana: Decades of war, seismic and biological.
(14:19:32) sdc_tnikana: Small community surrounded by large mountains is entirely fractured off from the mainland. Religious leaders in town have kept people from climbing the mountains only to see a sheer drop, followed by nothing at all.
(14:19:55) sdc_tnikana: Last word heard broadcast were "economic turmoil", but that was over 150 years ago.
(14:20:04) sdc_tnikana: So how do the citizens in town deal with this?
(14:20:28) sdc_tnikana: The postmaster has a secret: he fakes the incoming mail; writes it all himself. Gives the people hope.
(14:20:51) sdc_tnikana: There's a busted crop duster, too bad it can't fly, let alone get over the mountains.
(14:21:16) sdc_tnikana: There's an old radio which has become the object of religious attention, its worshippers waiting for it to speak.
(14:21:56) sdc_tnikana: The main character is a 52 year old male, living in town since he was born there. Through the actions of his two kids, he grows disenchanted with the system.
(14:22:17) sdc_tnikana: However, there is absolutely nothing beyond the mountains, and in general, every last person is gently caressed.
(14:22:21) sdc_tnikana: And this is where the story ends.
(14:22:36) sdc_tnikana: I think it could work. ^_^
(14:23:26) sdc_tnikana: I came up with this last night, with poking and prodding from friends. ^_^
(14:25:29) sdc_tnikana: Now although it will never actually be revealed in the book, I'm trying to think of ways that such large amounts of geography could effectively be nullified.

50,000 words about anything with a story.

Try this on for size: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finnegans_Wake

Quote from: Finnegan's Wake
Despite being one of the most well-known books of the 20th century, Finnegans Wake remains unread by the larger public. Joyce's methods of stream of consciousness, literary allusions and free dream associations are pushed to the limit in the book, which abandons conventions of plot and character construction and which is written in a unique language based mainly on complex multi-level puns. Although many readers and commentators have reached a broad consensus about the central cast of characters and general story, many details remain elusive.

So I have my random dissociated novel notes, if anyone wants to look. The trick is to write them out on the iPod, so that they don't blossom into prose, thus invalidating the entire story.
Quote
Postmaster Jim Sherman fakes the mail because it's all he knows. What happens when he runs out of paper?

One last working radio that squaks random stuff in every now and then. It's neither words or music, though. Just loud noise.

A busted crop duster that can't fly over the mountain. Maybe if we can roll it down Main street while the preacher isn't looking?

One of the town's residents rigged up his  extensive solar panels a long time ago, and passed his house through the generations. He has a six-shooter with four bullets left, the other two having a history. He uses two shots to drop the massive irradiated bird. The others could be used on the preacher. This man's name is David Becker, and his wife is Mary.

Main character is a 52 year old male living in town for as long as he can remember, who through the actions of his kid, grows disenchanted with the system. How long ago did his wife pass away? His name is Scott Riley. His wife is Jessica, and his kid's name is Martin.

What happens when the medical supplies run out?

The preacher acts as the real mayor, and he legislates from the church. The preacher's name is The Reverend Samuel Alexander Ingram.

Possibly: near the end of the novel, there is a massive earthquake that destroys a mountain, allowing the inhabitants to see the outside world for themselves.

Because there are no bullets left in the village, a girl, Kelly, will be executed by the priest and his men for the shameful crime of sodomy by stoning. Bundled along with her is a boy rendered catatonic, one of the neighbor's kids, Jeffrey, about what he saw when he climbed the mountain. He is unable to speak of it.

The preacher blames both of them for the power outage caused when a massive cancerous looking bird destroys the solar panels.

There is absolutely nothing visible beyond the mountains. Everyone is boned at the end.

The name of the town is Bluejay.

Remember, you're not racing each other! Everyone has a chance to win!

You're racing against the inevitable: you're racing against the whole month of November! Will you write a novel before it dies? Or will it die and leave you novelless? Only you can decide!

This means I'll probably be handing out multiple boxes of Ramune. Or possibly just one. Or maybe even none. Depends on how many finish, really.

Well, if you divide 50,000 by 30, you get 1,667 words per day. And to keep with the schedule, you need to have 8,335 words by now. If you don't have that much, you're falling behind!

By the end of today, everyone should have 15,003 words if they want to be keeping up. If you have more, it means you can slack off later. If you have less, better catch up!

mine is modern fantasy.

mine... i'm not sure what to classify it as. it's like a philosophical superhero story, but i'm not sure that encompasses everything. it's really dark mostly, although there are some funny parts.

I heard from someone that you had mistaken the count to be 500,000 words, and that you already had a 50,000 word story ready, with another one sitting at 40Kish. Am I right?

I've been done for about a week or so. I know this because it's handwritten and after a bunch of mathematical calculations figured it to be totaled at around 54,000 words so far. (I averaged 300 words a page, did about 180 pages)Just need to get off my lazy butt and count them all and get someone to confirm. Is it against the rules to have finished the first draft with about 140 pages (about 42000 words) and started to second draft (on about page 38 or 39 on that one) which makes up the rest of the 50000? Or do I have to lengthen the first draft another 8000 words? By the way, it's handwritten.

I'm already editing Chihiro's novel, and having two novels lying around to edit could get hairy.

If you two can, send a copy of your manuscript to tanisnikana@gmail.com. Mitsukai, I only need to see yours with my eyes.

Once that's done, you two can pick your flavors. Right now, I have only a case of regular in my closet, so if you want that, it'll be ready for you immediately, otherwise it takes two weeks to order a case from Uwaji.

Are you going to the Christmas party, Tanis? I could show you the manuscript then,

And I doubt you'd need a ride. There's fifty-three bus lines and three train lines servicing the Powell's we'll be at.

Seriously! I suddenly feel totally aimless. I've went back to my normal hobbies (reading, watching anime, playing videogames, etc) but with a vengeance. I feel like I'm doing NaNoWriMo for each of those things this month :D

But it really is a normal feeling, it happened last year but more badly (last year I got really depressed actually X3)

No, it's more like you are depressed that your life is no longer challenging and your goals are no longer crystal clear. But yeah, everything is a little bit good and a little bit bad.

I'll be at the TGIO party today, if you'd like to bring it then ::shrug::

Otherwise I'm not exactly sure when I can make it... XD I doubt my parents would be cool with me traveling to a different city to go to a 20-something-year-old boy's house to obtain soda. Perhaps we could meet somewhere like Uwajimaya? PM me if you think of anything that might work out.

Logistics, though. Everyone seems to think Ramune is weightless, but in actuality a box is 40 pounds and I don't drive, so I'd be lugging it all the way over to wherever you are on foot...

Well I don't drive either.  :-[

Hmm... lemme talk to some of my friends and see if I can work something out. If I can't get it to work out maybe you'll just have to keep it :'(

Winners have one week past thaw to claim their Ramune. After that, I'll drink it.
