NaNoWriMo2020 tidbit

inspirational art by Jakub Rozalski

Of absolutely minimal interest to anyone, I have decided on a title for this year’s NaNoWriMo novel.

Knives in the Side of the Dawn

I’m veering back to the 1920s mech/dieselpunk/interbellum-era idea I had. It’s none of those genres, of course, as it takes place in an alternate universe and may not be even our Earth. The name is inspired by the Doors “When the Music’s Over”:

What have they done to the earth, yeah?
What have they done to our fair sister?
Ravaged and plundered and ripped her and bit her
Stuck her with knives in the side of the dawn and
Tied her with fences and dragged her down
I hear a very gentle sound
With your ear down to the ground
We want the world and we want it (we want the world and we want it!)
Now
Now?
Now!

Jim Morrison/Doors, When the Music’s Over

At ease. Smoke ’em if you got ’em.
