I am preparing for Nanowrimo really early but i am looking for ideas to help me get the creative juices flowing 50,000 words in four weeks is a lot when you have no starting place throw me some general ideas to get me started PLEASE!
You're preparing to write consistently 10.5 months from now?
Why not do a trial run for November and write every day in March?
50,000 words is easy. The right 50,000 words is the hard part.

How about writing a story where the main character is gender neutral. Give absolutely no reference to gender at all. Just let us put a gender to the person. And then have the person enter a romantic and same-gendered relationship. Then, last part, just do, "I am a x"
So like say main character=a. Then romantic counterpart=b.
If b=boy, then have a=boy, then most people, at least heterosexual, will assume the gender of a=girl.
Why not have it a story of a child's struggle to be accepted by his gay dads when he comes out of the straight closet? That'd be an interesting twist on perspectives.

Why not a main character in a wheelchair? No need to make it hard. Write what you know... doesn't have to be your story, just use knowledge you have to bring life to a different story.
