I haven’t talked much about my writing recently.
I’ve been going great guns on a YA novel. It feels really good. It’s hard because there for a while life was getting in the way all the time and I wasn’t making any progress and I was feeling a little desperate. But now that I am, it feels great!
I’m not going to say much about the YA except that it’s a blast to write! It’s an idea I’ve been mulling over for a long long time. At first, I thought it would be an adult women’s fiction, but the idea fits perfectly as a YA and if it were to be successful could be a really fun series for both girls and guys.
I’m taking a week off in August from my day job just to write. It may be optimistic, but I really am going to try to crank through a first draft by then. I’m at 16K words and need to get to about 75K. Very ambitious but you have to have goals, otherwise nothing gets done. Than after that, lots of revision.
Then ~ GULP ~ I’m going to try to tackle a memoir, which scares the dickens out of me!
