Because what's a writing blog without a writing update?
As you have seen, my main focus as of right now is If Only We, a young adult contemporary novel. I am in the process of revising and rewriting this one.
If Only We - current word count is 47,752.
I am gaining a little bit on a couple scenes I recently figured out. I had an epiphany last night on a scene I started out this week, so I'll be tweaking it a teensy bit this weekend and continuing with the next scene. I am so close... I can feel the finale coming... and I can't wait to reach that point. It means I'm that one step closer to getting it out there for you to read.
I also started to write the first scene in my next project, but I need to tweak the spot where it starts a little bit. I think it needs to start about fifteen minutes later. And I need to come up with a more clever way to start it... hmm... ideas are brewing... It may not necessarily be the greatest idea to work on a second novel, but when the story is screaming at you to be told, sometimes you have to listen and just write. Once I finish If Only We, I'll start posting the word count for the new story... which shall remain nameless for a short time. Why? What's life without a little bit of suspense? ;)
