Originally, this was intended as set of writing prompts for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) 2009, but I leave it here in hopes it might be helpful to someone else (and for those of you who want/need it for NaNo this year, enjoy).

Probably most of you have heard of the 100 Themes Challenge - you can find them here on DA. If you write 1,000 words per theme, you will have 50,000 words once you have a halfway-complete list. If you write two 1,000-word vignettes every day, you will finish in thirty days. These 1,000 words may in turn inspire more words, which can be strung together. Or you might just leave it a series of vignettes. I call it ‘A Picture’s Worth a Thousand Words’. NaNo says if you believe you’re writing a novel, they believe you’re writing a novel too, and GO FOR IT!

I cite this string of vignettes idea because of the House on Mango Street which I was made to read while in school. It was not a novel in the usual sense of the word. It was a collection of vignettes that were loosely tied together by virtue of being the memories of one character.

I think I might give this a shot, but I'm going to do it with art instead. :) Although I may try my hand at writing, too.
