The right ideas when you need them

Originally appeared online in the teen series: Your Healings - January 9, 2018

“Music to my ears.” It was a few weeks into the school year when this phrase suddenly popped into my head. And while I didn’t know why, this cliché felt very profound to me. I immediately made a note of it on my phone, then quickly forgot about it.

Around the same time, I was taking a graphic novel class (composing a novel in comic strip form), and we’d begun writing a story that would become our own graphic novel. A few weeks later, the rough draft of my story had come together. All I needed was a title.

One day, as I was looking through the notes in my phone, I came upon the note I had written a few weeks before: “music to my ears.” That was when it occurred to me that this could be the title for my graphic novel.
