Single in November - any interest?

Hi all,
I have to say, single in September proved to be succesfull IMO. Now with Coupled in October nearing completition, me and stills were talking about reigniting Single in.... project. This thread is to find out whether there would be enough interest to go for another month...
Rules are very simple and basic: one lens, one month, picture a day... nothing else, you shoot what you want, when you want, but have to take (at least) one picture a day with your selected lens.
Personally, SiS was huge achivement. 20 pictures shot for that challenge made it through PPG (yeah, I know many of you think that with falling standards etc it's not a big deal.... but still). So this receipe seems to be working for my creativity...
So, any opinions? Any volunteers?

I'd be in I think, but I'd still like to choose a single focal length so I can compare different lenses (not that I can't do that on my own, but the motivation for a shot a day would definitely help).

As Axl already alluded to, I'm certainly in...and keen enough for SiN!!! Single in November.

Any other takers?...C'mon.

And for those who were saying "Yeah but you bailed on us for Coupled in October". Well I apologise now, but in my defence life events conspired against me.

I'm in!

Edit: I think I will use my D FA 100mm macro for a round of close-up's and macro shots. I recently received "Understanding Close-up Photography: Creative Close Encounters with or without a Macro Lens" by Bryan Peterson so this is an excellent chance to get started on that. Thanks a lot for pinging me Peter :-)

Count me in.

Thanks Peter for the message of SIN.

I'd like to participate but won't know until later this week my workload for November so I am hesitant to join just yet. I'll yet you know.

I'm going to kick it around for a couple of days. I have a lot of projects to finish off around home before the snow flies and I may not be able to shoot everyday unless I end up with a documentary on do it yourself chimney repairs and other home improvements. Another issue is I have to replace some ceiling tile and do some painting in the area where the computer is set up. I also need to redo some electrical wiring. That may keep my editing limited to a netbook for a few days if I get online at all. I need to get it all done by Thanksgiving. ( Late Nov. for those outside the US)

I am definitely interested. October has been a bit of a failure for me. My camera being away for repair.
Hopefully I will see it soon.

But I will keep an interest in this new version.

I have ordered a K5 (reckless of me?) but word is wont be available till December.

I'm in on this one. October's would have been ok except I had no wheels. With this one, I can do within my neighborhood. I'll use my 18-55mm for this project.

I'm in...

I'm actually going to do some fall cleaning, have to decide on what to keep and what to let go. FA 50mm f1.4 will have to do as it is the least used lens from what I have...
