Sadly, I am taking a break from Dawn, Lawrence and the gang. Their revisions were giving me headaches so I needed something fresh. Just for a little bit. I promised myself I would never forget them and will make sure their story is completed to my satisfaction someday. I will.
BUT. Last night I started a new novel. I am several thousand words in and LOVE IT! It's not fantasyish so I am having zero mental block issues. AND I learned something that I took with me to this new novel. I wrote my queryinfo (not a real word) first. SO when I finish it, I won't get sidetracked/bogged down/fixated on any extraneous information/details/conflicts.
I'D LIKE TO INTRODUCE:
Seventeen year old with crappy friends just looking for her place to fit in
a midst people who don't like her for who she is
while holding fast to who she wants to be
learning that there is always more
to learn about oneself
I REALLY LIKE HER AND ONLY WISH IT WOULD BE SET UP FOR A SERIES SO I DON'T HAVE TO SAY GOODBYE AT THE END. of my new YA contemporary romance novel.
maybe someone else will like her too (y'know like and agent...or a publisher...and eventually the ya reading public!!!! there i go getting ahead of myself again.
off to write chapter 5. ttfn
