(Yes, that actually is Tia, looking bored and awaiting your challenge.)
So, think you can actually make Tia miserable?
Last year, Matt offered to let people decide what he wrote in exchange for donations. It did, indeed, make Matt miserable. Tia, being the sadist that she is, scoffed at his pain and then volunteered to take on the challenge herself. Although Tia writes mainly fantasy, but thinks that she will be a fair bit harder to make miserable. In other words, bring it on.
Tia will also make the novel available for online viewing as she writes it. You’ll be able to find it here: http://is.gd/mkmnovel
First, leave a comment on this post with what you want to pick; first come, first serve. Be sure to leave your email address when filing out the form. Tia will mark claimed items as “pending” as she sees them.
Second, make the donation to Nano in nanolanta’s name and forward it to donations @nanolanta.org. Once confirmed, this post will be updated and the option struck out.
If you have questions, leave a comment. This will close on Monday, October 29th at 5:00pm eastern time. Any options that aren’t funded, Tia will get to pick. Do you really want that to happen? 😀
Things with which to make Tia miserable:
Genre – $10 to eliminate one choice
Donate 10 dollars to eliminate one genre. Last one standing wins.
- Chick Lit
- Erotic Fiction
- Historical Fiction
- Horror and Supernatural
- Literary Fiction
- Mainstream Fiction
- Religious, Spiritual and New Age
- Science Fiction
- Satire, Humor and Parody
- Young Adult and Youth
- Mystery, Thriller and Suspense
Characters – $25 for main, $10 for secondary, $5 for a cameo
Main characters are limited to three (for now). With your forwarded donation, send Tia a description with as much or as little as you like (she’ll fill in the rest). You can send an existing character (yes, Tia doesn’t mind fanfiction) but Tia suggests you check to see if she’s familiar with the character, otherwise it’s whatever Wiki tells her. Tia will take as many secondary and cameo characters as are suggested (she also suggests keeping it simple for the cameos, such as “Michael Jordan”, “Bella Swan”, “Mr. Ian Woon”, “A guy eating peach pie”, “Myself”, etc.)
- Main Character 1 – pending
- Main Character 2
- Main Character 3
- Minor Character 1
- Minor Character 2
- Minor Character 3
- Minor Character 4
Plot – $25 for plot, $10 for plot twist/subplot
Tia will take a five-sentence-ish plotline and two-sentence-ish plot twists or subplots.
- Subplot #1
- Subplot #2
- Subplot #3
- Subplot #4
- Subplot #5
Ending – $25
Pick a direction for the ending to go – “happy”, “sad”, “destructive”, “uplifting”, “comical”, “unexpected”, etc. tia isn’t predominantly sad-ending like Matt, so you get a bit more leeway here.
Setting – $25
Have a setting in mind? Send a description of as much or as little as you like (again, Tia will fill in the blanks). Again, existing settings (fanfiction) are accepted, but if Tia doesn’t know it, off to Wikipedia.
