Over on the NaNo forums, you'll find a thread for dares. It's a place for issuing challenges - things like "Include a character who wears different colored Converse shoes so that he can tell his left from his right." Some of the dares include bonus points at one or more levels (BP, DBP and TBP).
So, here's a challenge for all you hooping WriMos:
Use a hoop somewhere in the story.
BP if it's an LED or fire hoop.
DBP if it's used by a main character (MC).
TBP if it's an important part of the plot.
You may have figured it out, but an enchanted LED hoop plays a big role in setting up my story, and possibly in its resolution as well.
Have fun with it, and feel free to add your own dares. Let's get creative - anything that helps us hit 50,000 in 30, right? ;)
Aw yeah! Hoop burlesque - a natural fit for your story. :)
By the way, have you seen the trailer for the new movie with Cher? It's all about a burlesque show and in fact is titled Burlesque. When I saw the ad, my first thought was of all the burlesque hoopers here and what they would think of it.
I saw that! Initially I was not into it, the parts I saw seemed to construe burlesque as something more akin to gogo dancing, but as the promotion whent on it seemed to be more Chicago and Cabaret-esque and now I'm thinking it might be all right. I'm just hoping it doesn't give the wrong idea about burlesque!
