Gimme ideas for writing something the order of 100,000 words without doing too much to any research at all.

Some dark power that has been sleeping for a few thousand years is back and wants to rule the world. Only your farmer boy can stop it, along with a silent guy in black, and elf, and some random princess sidekick.

How about a drug-induced trip?

It worked for Coleridge... for a while anyway.

Too bad I am straight as anything. I kind of like the first idea, maybe set in the far future (or muddle earth) where humanity had to start all over due to some meteor or something. And I can have random magic/technology to move the plot forward.

The President has been kidnapped by the ninjas. Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the President?

Fuck that, he can rescue his own worthless ass.

it's the end of the world. don't specify what's going on, but that it's happening is universally known. Maybe have a countdown timer with a dropping ball like on new year's eve.

This is for Nano, isn't it?

Maybe you could be a rotter. Anyone can do it - just look at Nasu. Remember, mollusks and clams.

what is that from?

My head. I'm not sure what the time offset for this board is but I'm in EST, and if that post happens to be at three in morning or something then that situation would explain the post I guess.

On further reflection, I may also have been thinking about or unconsciously influenced by a short story by Neil Gaiman called "When We Went to See the End of the World by Dawnie Morningside, age 11ΒΌ." Suffice to say, it is very strange.
