I think the story is starting to take form in my head. Wouldn't that be nice? It surely would help in me having a shot at succeeding in NaNoWriMo.
The opening scene idea that just starting working itself out in my head is that BoD is somewhere where a robbery starts to go wrong. BoD looks around a bit disinterested, since she already knows the relative outcome. Her voice in my head is saying stuff like "I barely even flinch at loud sounds anymore." and "there was a time when I would...". Though her power doesn't prevent people, including herself, from getting hurt.
Perhaps BoD will be the narrator. A first person story. If I do that then it'd be a whole lot easier to convey to the reader what she is thinking and feeling. But, third person allows for broader coverage. I did the first person take with Faith, and while I liked that story for the most part, it did annoy me that I couldn't write about the stuff that was going on that she wasn't part of.
