If you're trying to decide what to do for NaNoWriMo, or if you're just trying to decide what YA book you want to write next, post here. You don't have to tell us anything about your book if you want to. Just have two projects in mind and decide ahead of time which is heads and which is tails.

Next poster: Quote the person you flipped for. Tell us "heads" or "tails". Then say whether you want someone to flip for you!

I'll start: I'm deciding between two ideas and the working titles are
Jakr MacCool (heads) and Slipstream Sisters (tails).

*hopes I'm doing this right*

You get tails! Slipstream Sisters just sounds like a cooler title to me.

I'm trying to figure out a setting for my novel. It's going to have a Greek monster in it, but I can't decide whether to set the novel in my own made-up world with a variety of beasties, including the Greek one, or to set my novel in an alternate Ancient Greece where the monsters are real. So...

Heads = made up world with lots o' monsters
Tails = alternate Ancient Greece where monsters of myth are real

Tails, alternate Greece

Okay, for NaNo, I need to choose between these two.

Heads = Cybernetic soldier chooses to help the girl he is assigned to kill when he realizes that she holds a secret that may involve him & keeps her from seeing him (& potentially falls in love with her along the way).

Tails = Bi-gendered, cheerful, & curious half-breed must hide who he/she is in order to learn magic and stay alive, but falls in love with a prince who can see through the disguise.

You got heads! None of that bi-gendered and bread stuff for you. ;)

Should I get back to work on Heads: Nimble or Tails: KoIS?

Heads (sorry, I know you prefer KoIS).

New question:

Heads: The MCs should fall in love during their journey because it adds to the drama & emotional stakes
Tails: Falling in love with the other MC is so cliche, why can't they just be friends?

Tails. Thank God, if I had the decision, I would have picked that too.

Umm, I don't leave much to chance. Sorry.
