i want your thoughts

I just titled this post "monday monday"--can we say off a day? Oops.
Yesterday I took the kids and hung out with  my  mom all afternoon...totally eliminated that Monday-ish feel. Watch, now I'll be confused all week long.

So, I thought I'd give you a little NaNoWriMo update. It's just barely slugging along. Poor WIP o' mine. Weekends are slaughter for my efforts, filled with errands and family and worship. But, I won't beat myself up. You just never know God's plans for me or the story. No sweat.

I am hoping for some better writing time this week, though. I've got plans to hang out in the library with ear buds and my novel while my daughter is at karate tonight--that is, as long as my husband gets home early enough. Otherwise, I'll crank out what I can once the kids are in bed, before slumber takes over for me. The older I get, the older I feel--I'm sleepy at 10:30 every night. I've pushed past it for writing recently, but let's just say the word count isn't so high at that hour. Haha.

I am digging deeper into my story's life, though. It turns out Molly and Caleb haven't always just hated each other. They dated in high school until he saw an incriminating picture. Hmmm...but as you know, things aren't always what they seem. I know who he was and what happened. Caleb doesn't. I also know it ruined a dance for her (I'm pretty sure it was Homecoming). And Caleb, well, he's in the know about a secret that affects his family and hers. She hasn't learned of it just yet, but it will explain some of his jaded attitude...

Seeing that they're each other's "perfect match" is both ludicrous and curious...


You're turn. If you were reading a story like this, what would YOU want to see? What would be surprising and enticing and what would lure you in deeper?
