Now is the time to choose February's topic!

Any and all ideas are appreciated; just post! We are very flexible with the approach to our monthly topic and it can be a topic, theme, category or whatever else may work. It could be something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue... Also feel free to discuss or build upon anyone else's idea if you'd like. Here is a list of most of our previous topics in alphabetical and numerical order for perusal if interested; you could suggest something from the list, use it as inspiration or suggest something entirely different:
Spoiler:

1501-1800
1801-1900
1901-1920
1921-1940
1941-1960
1961-1980
1981-2000
Award Winners
BCE-1500
Biographies & Memoirs
Canada & the U.S.
Central Asia, East Europe & Russia
Ch Ch Changes
Contemporary
Fun! Fun! Fun!
Highly Challenging
International Feel
Ireland & the U.K.
Japan
Journey around the World
Korean Peninsula, Mongolia & China
Latin America
New Beginnings & Uncharted Waters
Non-Fiction
North & Central Europe
North Africa & the Middle East
Obscure
Open
Plays
Poetry
Portugal, Belgium, The Netherlands, Spain & France
Region
Retrospective
Short
Short Stories
South Asia
South Pacific
Southeast Asia
Southeast Europe
Sub Saharan Africa
Time Period
Touch of the Poetic
With Heart
Youth Fiction

This process will last until around when the discussion thread for this month's selection goes up, which could be as early as around the 10th but could be some days later depending, at which point a topic will be settled on for January. We don't have any hard or fast rule for how it will be decided amongst the ideas presented. If there seems to be a consensus or majority interest in a particular idea, we'll go with that one. Otherwise, an idea by someone who hasn't chosen a topic before or in awhile might be the one we go with. If neither of those are relevant, we'll likely go with the first one suggested that isn't my own.

If we happen to have no ideas posted before the discussion thread for this month's selection goes up, I will choose a topic for the next month and announce it so that we'll have something. However, if this is the case, any others may still post ideas after this and we'll likely go with one of those instead if so. And with all that said-

The floor is now open!

Well, given my tardiness regarding poetry I thought I could maybe do penance here .

I'll take my suggestion from the Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne song Free Fallin' and suggest Free Falling as a topic.

It could be:
A fall into or out of a relationship.
A fall into personal despair (economic, depression,...).
A novel (or maybe non-fiction) framed within a stock market, business or economic crash.
Science fiction with an anti-gravity thread .
A novel involving sky-divers.
A free falling journey.
etc.

Also a few clues in this video (but only if one likes Tom Petty and are not fussed by the freedoms of rock video).
