Happy Monday! Well, it’s already almost over, but there’s still an hour and a half left until Tuesday begins, at least here in Texas. I wasn’t going to write anything today, but here I am. I’m still under the weather, but I forced myself to go to work. Somehow, and I don’t know how, I managed to work my shift. When I got home, I crashed. I’m still in bed, only getting up to grab a bite to eat.
But enough of my sad little life, the NaNoWriMo site has relaunched! If that doesn’t excite you, well I’m sorry. I’ve had a few ideas of what I want to write, but nothing concrete. On the way home, as I listened to the songs I have on my phone, one came on that I like. It isn’t one of my favorites, and most days I skip it, but I let it play today. While listening, one line stuck out;
So I wash away stains of yesterday…,
~Forgiveness – Collective Soul 1997~
The wheels in my head began to turn, the idea of heartbreak becoming a much used starting point to my stories. I can’t help myself. It’s what motivated me to begin writing back during my first NaNoWriMo in 2011. I don’t want to give out too many details because I don’t want anyone to steal it, and also because they aren’t fully formed, but it’s enough to get the creative juices flowing. So my NaNo 2015 is tentatively titled Stains of Yesterday.
I’ve already created the novel, and I’m ready to get started. There’s still a chance it may change before November, but at least I have a jumping point. I may start planning a loose plot structure, nothing concrete, just a sketch of what the story will be, where I want it to go, and why. I’m getting excited already!
And if you’re interested, here’s the song, in all it’s 90’s goodness
