Repost: NaNo Planning Poll

Geez Louise, this has been updated so that I am speaking grammatically correct English.

Hey, folks. I’d I’m doing a repost. Now that it’s at a 3-way tie–who’d a thunk it?–I am wondering if those of you who commented also voted in the poll or if the comment was your vote? I have no way of knowing, unfortunately, unless I pay to upgrade my poll daddy account (cue hysterical laughter). Thanks!


Half the fun (okay, more than half) of doing NaNoWriMo on my blog in 2016 was making the planning polls.  (Yes, I’m a geek. No news there.)

This first one is just to get a genre. While I’d love to put every genre on the list, if I am going to be writing 50,000 words in it, I have to be somewhat comfortable writing in that genre. So, the list is comprised of ones I feel I can work with. If you’ve been following me long enough and think I’ve missed one (wouldn’t surprise me), let me know in the comments. I am open to reasonable suggestions.

Also, consider what you like reading and what you think we could have misery fun with.

The poll will close in a couple of days. Thanks for playing! 🙂

  1. My vote just made it a three-way tie. Sorry. I know whatever you write it will be good.

    How did you find that polling site? I would be afraid to type “Poll Daddy” into Google.

  2. I went with ‘other’ because it doesn’t seem to matter if you plan or not, if you start out in one direction or the other, by the time you stop thinking and let it all flow out, it may be none of the things you started with … let it go with the flow, see what happens – that’s the fun of it!

    1. Thanks. That’s the way I usually do it and then around word 30,000, I need the zombie apocalypse. So I have the best of intentions of planning this somewhat. (I always laugh over “best of intentions” 🙂 )

      1. I always plan, and it’s easy to stick to that for the first part (25%) – after that, it’s up to the people in the story to ‘do their thing’ and keep it all moving. Sometimes, I let them, sometimes, I try to rein it in – not always successfully. As long as the story gets done …
