Three paragraphs, 387 words, so far. My opening sentence:

"Every time I drove through Saint Vincent, past the new, modern houses and the ultrasleek office complex, it struck me how incongruous a place it was for my grandmother to be spending her final days."

Here in time we are added to one another forever.

-- "Epitaph," by Wendell Berry

My NaNoWriMo novel is not yet started -- have to wait till after work for that -- but this resonates with what it will be about. As well as just resonating, generally, especially as sung by an a capella group in an arrangement in which the male voices sound like the drones of a bagpipe.

While I was driving home tonight, I think I had the inspiration for my NaNoWriMo novel. I think A Rainbow of Shadows will probably not be the title after all... current working title is Finding Danny.

Must do some research. Must invent Waubansee Bay geography. Must plot.

Eep.

Well, I did it. I signed up for NaNoWriMo. What am I thinking? I have a show to do and my mother will be visiting the last week of the month. And I'm going to try to write 50,000 words too? eep...

Hey, [livejournal.com profile] bookishfellow, can I steal that A Rainbow of Shadows title you threw at me all those years ago?
