    I actually half a page written about how Arthur Weasley "wins" a trip for two to Pinecreek Hills National Park.

    Pinecreek Hills is the setting of the Vacation Adventure: Park Ranger games. The game characters cross over to some extent with the Cruise Director and Christmas Wonderland games.

    This idea stemmed from Arthur Weasley (the Harry Potter character who loves Muggle objects but has no idea what most of them are for). I figured he'd be in seventh heaven in a setting like a Park Rangers game where there's so much unclaimed stuff lying around.

    Yes, I know Pinecreek Hills isn't in the UK. Yes, I know it's a flimsy (so far) premise for a story. But it won't leave me alone until I write it.

    But that doesn't mean I'm not continuing with King's Heir for my NaNo projects.

    I suspect that He Who Must No Be Named rigged the drawing in order to lure the Weasleys into a trap. :shifty:

    Now that's a good idea. And to think I'd decided it was merely a means to help Arthur and Molly celebrate their silver wedding anniversary! :love:

    (I guess they can multi-task... :think:)

    This story would need a bit of research, since I know nothing about how the Wizarding World works in the U.S. It's not mentioned in the regular novels or movies, so I'm hoping I can just ignore it.

    BTW... Camp NaNoWriMo starts today and I'm setting up the OP for my thread right now. :yup:

    First of all... there are no rules that say you have to do NaNo by computer. They did away with the onsite validation requirement and it's on the honor system now. So I'm doing mine by hand, on looseleaf.

    You're allowed to enter late, as long as it's not before the validation date. And you can choose your own word count goal in April, so you wouldn't be trying to make up 50,000 words (unless you're a masochist).

    If this isn't doable, there's always July...

    (and guys, please could NaNo be discussed in the NaNo thread? I didn't start that to sit there and talk to myself...)

    Hello There! @Valka D'Ur invited me to join from the NaNoWriMo page.
    I am currently working on a Warhammer 40k Alternate Heresy. I'm excited to join the group, does anyone else doing anything with Warhammer or similar Sci-fis?
