Every year's NaNo seems to be influenced by my current fandom. Last year it was The Mentalist, and my characters became a mirror of the show's, which is not good. At least this year's kind of related to my story; also, it is a wonderful old fandom with lots of inspiring fanart and fans.
Random research is the most fun part about this novel. So far I have found out about sociopaths, dentistry, stalkers and asthma-related complications. Learning is forever!
