NaNoWriMo!

I took your heart in my hand
and I crushed it until I was stained red.
In pieces it broke,
barely beating; still yearning to mend.
I watched you try to stitch it up again.

 I have the general ideas of my NaNoWriMo novel down, but I'm still trying to figure out what I really want the story to be like. I'm not sure if I've already told y'all a bit about my story, but the first 1-2 thirds of the book is going to be only poems. I'm going to be writing a lot of new poems, but I think I'm also going to use some from here. 
The main character of my story is going to be the one who ''wrote'' all the poems, and then at the end it'll change to a normal story format. 

I feel like this kinda restricts what I can write about though. The whole broken girl meets broken boy and together they mend plot is kinda being overused, and I don't want to write a story where the girl is saved by the boy. 
I'm thinking maybe what I'll do is the main character {who is a girl, btw} is manipulative and breaks this boy's heart. She feels guilty but she doesn't really ''know why''. So she writes the poems which take place over a period of time and then the story starts when the last poem is finished. The story will kinda be about her ''finding herself'' and changing and all the good moral stuff.

Okay, I'm excited. I think I just found my idea. :)

What are you writing about?

  2. Sounds like a great story! Good luck!

    I can't do the OFFICIAL NaNoWriMo because I'm not 13 (3 more years to go!) but I'm doing it anyway for the joy of writing. It motivates me. XP

    1. Thanks Lydia. :)
      I did NaNoWriMo before I turned thirteen, too! They have a book somewhere you can print/download that's good if you're not using the website.
