flourish told me I was being really secretive about what my nanowrimo novel was about...I'm not trying to be secretive, really, I'm just not very good at describing my WsIP.
The story so far is what the 16 year old narrator, Dillon, has chosen to tell us about his life. His Mom lost her job and nursing license after she killed a patient; his Dad and brother are virtual strangers, finally back from England, where they have been for the past twelve years; his new friend, Adam, is the class jerk, but that's why Dillon likes him so much; and someone keeps calling and leaving messages for Dillon, but he's not telling us much about that part.
Here are some snippets I kind of liked.
And, oh dear, they are all unedited.
( push it in, then pull it out, which sounds kind of haha sexy or maybe like the hokey-pokey in retrospectCollapse )
Do you want my nanowrimo soundtrack? GET IT HERE! It's worth d/ling just for the songs by The Ballet. And 'Girls Room' by Liz Phair. Unless you know, you hate free music or something?
