It looks more and more like I'm going to join in.  I have to write a
big November story anyway, the way things are turning out this year.

It can be part of any existing universe, and can use existing characters, but it must have an original title. A short cross-over, a mini-series, a title that only exists for this challenge, whatever. I hope this encourages creativity and originality.

I can't really meet this rule in its full power, because *all* my
stories are part of one series.  If NaNoWriMo was meant to prevent me
adding on to my already existing Great American Novel, I must not be
the target demographic.  But I will promise to make one story out of
these four episodes, put in a new protagonist, and not use my large
stable of "Mary Sue" characters.

So, if the first issue comes out on a Wednesday, the next issue must be released on the following Wednesday, and the third issue on the Wednesday after that. Not before or after. I want a fixed deadline to give the challenge more structure and have the resulting releases come out on a expected schedule.

These I can do.  Saturday is my usual best publication date.
