So I’m giving my YA novel a rest. I think I’ve near bludgeoned it to death between critiques, revisions, etc. We need some time away from each other.
In the meantime I’ve started something new. Yay for new! I feel like I’ve gotten a new boyfriend or something. You know how one can get all giddily optimistic at the beginning of a relationship. It’s actually an idea I’ve had a crush on for several months and I’ve jotted down notes here and there (flirting) but now I’m getting serious.
I’ve already written 20 pages from the beginning and about 10 more in random areas. It’s a middle-grade and the voice and characters and story just came so naturally and strong. I know it’s still early in our relationship and I’m bound to find that bag of hair somewhere (If you don’t get that watch “Fever Pitch,”) but I think this might be the book I tie the knot with. I just feel it.
