V is for Vivacious
“Let’s go outside.”
“Um, right now?” she asks.
“Yes, right now, I have something to show you!” I cry, excitedly. “But you’ve got to hurry.”
She sighs. “Can’t I see it some other time?”
“No, you have to come now or it will go away.”
“What is it?”
I smile. She isn’t going to believe this.
The entire passage isn't 'Vivacious,' but the MC sort of is, so I think that might count. And here's the song... Ignorance by Paramore:
Maybe this isn't quite Vivacious in the 'happy' way, but I like Paramore, and this song is pretty lively. The weird thing is, this song always reminds me of the book A Tale of Two Cities, which I read last year in school. It's not the lyrics that go with the story or anything, but I just used to listen to this song a lot during the time I was reading the book.
Speaking of Vivacious, I'm really excited and feeling lively today because I think I finally came up with a good title to replace The Trials.
It was last night, and I was just lying down, peacefully editing away, when all of a sudden... it hit me.
Time seemed to slow. My eyes widened in amazement because I was so caught off guard that I simply couldn't hide how impressed I was with myself!
The next thing I knew, I had my Google Talk screen up and (too lazy to take out my headphones and use my voice to explain) my fingers were stomping on the keyboard, giving away every little detail to my mom. It was too good to just keep to myself!
Anyway, I wish I could reveal the full idea to you guys, it would give away too much of the story.
I now call my story: The Phoenix Blade
Or, something along those lines. Maybe that's not the official title yet, but just for the time being, it works :)
Now, the few of you who've beta read my book might be thinking, umm... what does that have anything to do with the story?
Well, it's meant to be a title that you aren't quite sure of the meaning for the first few chapters, but I'm also planning on adding stuff which will (hopefully) benefit the story and help the title make sense.
Have you guys ever had that 'revelation' moment? Where you get an idea that's just too good to keep to yourself? (Or one that seems good and then in a few days sounds.... not so great?)
Have a... um... Victorious (?) day!
