How to be Invisible and Rule the World

Hello readers.

All those plot bunnies. I seriously love the term. Its so cute! And I just keep on getting them. But the other day I was getting ready for church. (I hadn't been out of the house for ages.)
And the idea just came to me. What if the oblivious kid had to teach the cool kid how to be invisible?

The inspiration came from the thought of social order. And being a teenager I would know. I've never been to school, but that does not mean I was never categorized. We all have to fit into one. No one can not be in one. Cause we like to think in scales.

Over my teenage life I have seen myself, one way or another, Invisible. I remember the first time I ever thought that.
I know so many teenage's who say: I'm not pretty enough, I'm too fat, etc. The list will go on. But for me, I'm happy with my self image. I am confident that I'm pretty and in good shape. I just have to look in the mirror and smile. (You're never fully dressed without a smile)
But I have always felt oblivious. I've always felt invisible.

But all over all I can see that I am the perfect image of a Wallflower

Wall flower definition:

  • person who, because of shyness, unpopularity, or lack of a partner,remains at the side at a party or dance.
  • Any person that remains on or has been forced to the sidelines of any activity.
Honestly when I read the definition the other night, I threw my hands in the air and said "I'm a Wallflower!"
So that is a brief history on the current teenage life of Rachel Day. And that leads me to my point. I don't know if anyone realized that being invisible/oblivious, or being a wall flower has its rules, has its tricks.  But no one has ever wanted to learn how. Cause we always want to be better rather than worse. We all want to get to the top.  
So that leaves us Wallflowers standing there with all our talent in the art of oblivion. 

That leads me to the story (sorry guys... I could go on for days about this stuff)

What if one day, someone who was popular, everyone saw them, everyone knew them. Had to become invisible? They had to learn the arts of oblivion, and turned to the kid that no one really cared about, and they taught them how. 
I often think about this. I very often thinking about how I could show someone what it looks like in the world of wallflowers.

I came up with the title 10 minutes after coming up with the idea. Which is weird, cause it was like 10 minutes... But I love it, its perfect, its a very me title, 

So after my endless rambling about this new story idea, I shall tell you how and when this is going to be.
I am going to write How to be Invisible and Rule the World for camp NaNoWriMo. So for the next couple of weeks I will be outlining, and creating characters and plots (you know the drill) 

(P.s: Hope you like the cover, I made it myself.)

I also have a Pinterest board for it Book Ideas: How to be Invisible and Rule the World
