"Ahead, I saw a big brick building, just past an active water fountain in the middle of a driving circle. I'd purposefully put driving circles everwhere on this campus in my narrative. Clever way of having a bunch of adrenaline high freshmen (or seniors) getting in their cars, looping around on the empty campus saying “YEAH, FUCKING DRIVING CIRCLE!" when it was at night and barely anyone was on campus. I wasn't thinking “Yeah, bad, bad idea." Driving circles that seem fun to drive around on an empty campus aren't nearly as fun if you’re waiting during the day to get to class. “YEAH, FUCKING DRIVING CIRCLE!” could turn into “DRIVING CIRCLE! FUUUCK!”

But hey, that’s conflict right there."

From my NaNo project, the NA parody I'm working on.  My heroine's kind of a trip.  Now I'm going to be thinking about driving circles for the rest of the night.  I'm about 12K into this project now.

 

The funny thing about this also is that most NA writers I've read works from don't even think about environmental details on the campuses which they set their works on. Something to think about.
