Leave me be, cursed Muse!

This is part of the Thursday's Children Blog Hop about what inspires our writing. Linky below!

Dreams. Just as I'm settling to fix a story about space-ninjas, my Muse comes to me in a dream. With an absolutely fabulous story idea that I'm instantly loving.

NO! I don't even know how to pitch this new story yet. Just a crazy awesome dream--

I've got this female secret agent who's a little heavy-set--"too fat to be suspicious," she jokes. She likes My Little Pony and autumn. Her name's Jordan. She's stealing US military intelligence for South Sudanese freedom fighters.

Then I've got David. He's a palladin battling anger issues. He longs to make the world a better place, but every now and then he's possessed with the desire to hurt everyone he meets. He's supposed to capture the spy stealing US military intelligence. And he hates her.

But the way she laughs--the way she wriggles out of his grip when he catches up to her--and the way her philosophizing rends his heart in the e-mails that pass between them--David's taken with her.

Jordan finds sanctuary in a coven of monastic mountain-dwellers. She's learning meditation, farming, and basket-weaving while she heals from battle-scars--as David desperately tries to prove she exists so he can arrest her. But as he gets closer to flushing her out, he's terrified: he doesn't want to find out if he loves her more than he hates her.

YES I want this book to happen. The dream was awesome, and I want to be in more of that.

But...but...Lem?

Dear God,
You're driving me crazy.
I love it.
Jen

  2. Dear PetrePan,
    Why is the girl going to resist the guy? Are you telling the story through the hero's eyes or the heroine's eyes?
    What has he got to lose? What has she got to lose besides being arrested?
    Just questions to pose to the writing muse inside your sweet head.
    Have fun writing this book.
    Never Give Up

  3. Sounds like a hilarious romantic comedy... When Harry Met Sally meets Eat, Pray, Love meets Anger Management... lol. Or not. But I like it.

  5. I think a heroine that doesn't fit the painfully skinny mold *and* likes MLP, is a heroine to root for! :)
