My plan for the A - Z Challenge is to write every post as if it were a diary entry by a character from my WIP. Today's post comes from Jesse Shaw.
I know it's pretty uncool for a guy to openly talk about being in love, but I'm okay with that because my girlfriend is worth me looking uncool for.
I met Taylor when I was new to Westberg. I was so nervous about messing up my soccer career before it had really begun, I used to get to work early and sit in the cafe opposite the training ground, drinking soda and forcing myself to relax.
Taylor was there some mornings. I noticed her because, well, what 18-year-old doesn't notice when there's a pretty girl in the room? Pretty isn't really the right word. She's beautiful. She started talking to me, asking me why I always looked so nervous and when I explained, she was so sweet. She knew all the right things to say to make me feel better, and I looked forward to seeing her every day.
When I eventually asked her on a date, she laughed and asked what had taken me so long. The truth is, I didn't think anyone as gorgeous as her would look twice at me. But she did.
I'm lucky. It takes some people a lifetime to land their perfect job and their dream girl. I have it all right now, and I'm gonna make sure I work hard, and treat Taylor right so I can keep it forever.
Just wanted to say a quick "sorry" for not replying to all of your comments just yet - I will be getting to it soon but my WIP is starting to take shape, and I want to keep going with it while the inspiration is there!
This brings me to my next thing. Titles.
I have never been good at thinking of titles, so I was wondering if there is some kind of magic trick to creating a title that fits the story, and is catchy enough that people will want to pick it up!
My WIP is centred around a fictional soccer team, so I'm thinking of some kind of play on words. Nothing as cheesy as "A Match Made In Heaven" (see what I did there lol) because not only is that sickeningly lame - it's wildly inaccurate! But you get the idea.
I'm just really tired of calling it "My WIP" instead of having an actual name for it.
No doubt I will do a whole post about this some time, I just wanted to have a little whine, and find out if anyone has any tips! :D
