Welcome to NaNoWriMo, Day 8!
And to the second week of this noveling madness. Week 2 is famous for being a pain. Yeah, yeah, it’s Monday, and that doesn’t help. But if we stick together, we’ll be fine. Pinky swear.
Sometimes, inspiration can come from the most unexpected places. For example, check out this example of how a conversation overheard in a coffee shop could work itself into a novel:
Mid-morning in a coffee shop, two baristas and a customer discuss airport security hassles.
“Yeah, you can fly with a gun. You just have to pack it in a special case.”
Good to know.

As a bonus, here’s some musical inspiration for this cold Monday. Doesn’t the woman in this song make you think of a chick lit protagonist?
