It’s 2017, guys. Which means it’s time to start hacking away at our writing goals. Which means I’ll be doing the Beautiful Books 2017 Writing Goals Link-Up. The draft I’m going to be r
ambling non stop about talking about today is the first draft of Runaway, my novel (learn more about Connor and Kyle’s story here).
So much I want to do, so little time… I totally want to do at least one Nano. I’d love to send Runaway to betas so they can give me aaalllll the comments and to have its third draft DONE by January first, if Connor and Kyle cooperate… I also want to send some articles/stories to other publications.
|Guys I actually did my own photography for this ENTIRE post! =D|
Well, um, you see, I don’t really have a general editing process. Everything I write has a different process. For example, with my novella, I went through it but by bit with Tessa Emily Hall and made tweaks along the way. Right now, I’m doing some HUGE edits on Runaway, so that looks way different than the touching up I did to A Sleep So Deep. THIS STUFF IS SERIOUS BUSINESS.
I’d give it a 5. It’s way messy and bare bones, in need of some major plot changes and character building. BUT IT IS MY BABY SO IT GETS A FIVE.
|Say hello to Runaway. THIS IS THE NOTEBOOK.|
The plot. I cannot say this enough. THE PLOT NEEDS WORK. Go Teen Writers by Jill Williamson and Stephanie Morrill is helping out A LOT.
My characters. *hugs Connor and Kyle and Kayla and allll the characters* I’ve grown so attached to them… *wipes eyes* They grow up so fast! Just don’t tell Connor I said that.
