Young Adult and Middle Grade
I figured it out!
This made me happy!
I've known for some time that Destiny's Story
just wasn't working the way I wanted it to, but I couldn't figure out
why. I thought maybe, at first, the format I had chosen just wasn't
working. I wanted my 15 year old FMC to write journal entries.
been doing a lot of thinking about this story since my father-in-law
passed last month. It's funny what gets a writer's mind working toward
the right direction. Anyway, I'd been trying to decipher the problem and find a solution. Of course, you can't prescribe a fix without a diagnosis, so for a while there, I just went around in circles. As if my ADHD brain doesn't need more circles to navigate.
The problem is two-fold.
So now, I get to sit down with the new starting point and get on from there.
@Mari--this is awesome! I love this. Congratulations!
I'd love for this to become a thread where other BC members can post when they "figure it out" for their YA and Middle Grade work, too.
Let's keep sharing when this happens. It's sooooo heartening to see, and there are so many kernels of wisdom that we can draw from each others' triumphs.
Thanks for starting this, Mari--it's the start of something wonderful, I think!
