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.
