Less than a week to go!

I finished my geometry midterm last night, turned the entire thing in this morning, and turned the extra credit for one problem in this afternoon. I am so glad to have that out of the way, considering that was the reason nobody saw me this week. Of course, I can't say much now, as I'm sitting here on the NaNo forums instead of going out. I actually meant to go out tonight, but then I got distracted by the forums because they weren't slow, and there went my plans for the night. We should try to get rid of this non-distraction thing before November, shall we?

NaNo starts on Thursday, and while I have a vague idea of a plot, I have no idea where it's going to go or who my characters are. It feels like 2005 when all I knew about the plot was that a guy thinks the world's going to end. Granted, I know a little more than that this year, but I still feel like I know very little.

But then I realize that I'm essentially writing the same thing that I wrote for NaNo last year and for Script Frenzy, only with a few more twists to it. Let's look at the plots:

NaNoWriMo 2006: MC leaves lover because she has commitment issues. She goes to find him again several years later.
Script Frenzy 2007: MC meets love of her life and returns to everyday life. She gets fired/quits her job and moves across the country to find him.
NaNoWriMo 2007: MC's boyfriend dumps him for a girl. MC gets knocked out by a trebuchet and thinks he's one of ex-boyfriend's female exes. He (she? I should ponder this) tries to win back ex-boyfriend.

Yeah, there are some weird, weird parallels here. Please don't tell me this is some weird subconscious thing although it probably is.
