NaNo Dares 2012 Week 2 – Election Day

November 9, 2012

National Novel Writing Month is a time to take risks, so every year in the forums, one can find threads where participants share and accept dares. Dares can be a fun way to spice up your novel or kick-start a scene when you get stuck. Sometimes they’re serious, and sometimes they’re silly, but they nearly always take you somewhere unexpected in your story. This month, in lieu of Friday Freewrites, I’ll be posting a dare each week for your NaNoWriMo novels (or any other fiction writing that you do this month).

*****

Your dare, should you choose to accept it, is this:

Include an election in your story.

  • Bonus points if your main character is running for office or running the campaign.
  • Double bonus points if either side attempts to rig the vote.
  • Triple bonus points if the outcome has life or death consequences for a major character.
  • Quadruple bonus brownie points with sprinkles if your main character loses.

*****

Let me know in the comments if you choose to accept all or part of this dare. And if you have your own dare for others, please share!
