The planning of my Novel has slowed down somewhat as I have been busy with my new job and school, ‘A’ levels are tough what with studying for january exams and ucas.
So far i have shown you what has inspired my novel.
At the moment i’ve planned the beginnings of a love story where one moment that doesn’t seem too important can really impact upon a person’s life. In my novel the two main characters meet in a coffee shop where he spills coffee all over her shirt and while he goes and buys them both coffees to make up for the accident they get talking and find the other really easy to talk with. They swap details: mobile and home number and their addresses. While the man realises he is in love with the woman almost instantly, the woman doesn’t really think much about it as she is already in a relationship. The next day, she receives a parcel in the post. Inside is a beautiful old style charm bracelet with a charm already attached, an abacus. Over the next year she realise the potential that that charm is indicating at, or rather the man is indicating at, that she could become incredibly smart, which she does. Over the next 15 or so years she gets sent a charm in the post from this man on the day they met. Each charm has its hidden meaning, a characteristic that she could come to embody over that year. She becomes the woman he always knew she could be and the woman whom he loved and will always love. The last charm is a guitar, which means him as he plays the guitar. This charm opens at the back and inside is engraved ‘I love you’. She never opens it on time and he thinking she doesn’t feel the same way pursues a relationship with another woman which upsets the protagonist greatly. A couple of months after he starts dating the other woman it is suggested to the protagonist that the guitars back opens. So the protagonist opens the back to find the message and she tries to go tell the man that she feels the same and that she has seen his message. However she gets mugged and her bracelet taken and left out on the street bleeding never having seen the man to tell him. A passer by sees her lying there calls an ambulance and the protagonist goes to hospital. The police search for the muggers and they find them and her bracelet, but the hospital staff never manage to get hold of the man (he’s on holiday). When she leaves hospital, physical wounds healed they leave one last message which he doesn’t hear for quite some time. By the time he gets back hears the messages she has moved on with another man she doesn’t love. He goes to her house and asks her what happened and she tells him everything he’s missed including her new relationship. He begs her to be with him. That new years eve she turns up at his party and they share a new years kiss.. The end
Please feel free to tell me what you think and any improvements you think would make the story better. They would be much appreciated.
Wow! My first blog. What I wanted with this blog was to write my ideas for books, my opinions on what’s on tv and books.
