thinking about writing

Today is October 5, and that means National Novel Writing Month (i.e., November 1-30) is less than a month away. I first participated in 2004, but didn't finish my 50,000 words. But in 2005 and 2006, I got over 50,000 each year and won! Nothing has come of either win, or of the losing "novel." (though I am wary to even call it a novel since it never went anywhere, but that's another story. ;) )

I'm thinking about doing some post-apocalyptic fantasy/science fiction this year. I started creating a world last year and ended up not using it. If I go back and look at it, I'll probably hate it, which means I can start with a completely new world. I don't have any actual story ideas yet, but most of the time I just start writing without a clear idea of where it's going at first.

Who else is writing in November this year?

I'm considering it, but I have to get some lawyers and university approval as it's about a true story that involved a law suit and death.
Any tips on where I could even start though with getting someone to buy into my idea and help me out?

Are you talking about finding a publisher? If so, go to the library and look through the latest Writer's Market book. It's probably available in reference somewhere at the library. Look for the genre you're writing in and see who's interested in it. That's the best place to start when you're looking to publish, but the book has to be written first. ;)
