I’m almost ready to go to work, but I thought I’d share this quickly. A NaNoWriMo link passed on my Facebook feed today, so I logged into my account and started filling out the details for the November 2014.
I’ve already written character bios for my two main characters, and now I have a title. So here it is.
Dori and Sam have always had a strange bond; they’ve both lost someone special in a car accident: Dori’s older brother Jon and Sam’s best friend. After Sam loses his job, he becomes homeless, prompting Dori to take him into her home. Dori is ready to help Sam heal from his demons, but is she ready to fall in love with an older man?
It’s probably going to be Jodi Piccoult type angst. No magic, no vampires, just a slow and cautious relationship.
It’s in the beginning stages, so there’s still time to figure out what “thing” might challenge the protagonists beyond, you know, the obvious as the age difference.
And I think I’ll start sketching out the characters. That might be one of the next things I post about the story.
Ooh, you know I love those slow burn ‘forbidden love’ kind of relationships, especially when people are bound by angst. Sounds like a great set up for a romance, and a plot scenerio I know you do well 😀 Good luck!
Plot sounds good! I just love it when two people who aren’t supposed to be together eventually overcome obstacles and struggles. Good luck with NaNoWriMo this year! 😀
Thank you so much! 🙂
Love the sound of this story! My parents had a huge age difference, so you tackling a relationship like that really intrigues me. Good luck with this during NaNo!
Thanks! Yeah It’ll be a challenge but it’ll be fun to explore.
