A New Project and Revisions

So I am starting on revisions of my YA thriller and I’ve been having some trouble trying to get into a rhythm. I am a part of an awesome YA Writers Reddit and I posed the question of how people tackle revisions and I got so many great responses! Here is the thread I started if you’re interested. I love this Reddit because it’s such an eclectic mix of publishing professionals, published writers and those in the process of writing their first novel and everyone writes YA.

So my CP Ashley and I have been exchanging a few chapters at a time and helping each other out. Actually, I really should be working on my stuff to send to her instead of writing this blog, but oh well! 🙂

Then to complicate my life to the extreme, I’ve started a new project. It’s a young MG novel about a 9 year old girl who meets a time traveling horse who has been sent back to help her set things back in place.

A new book AND revisions? It sort of makes me go:

But then I am finding that it is actually inspiring me as well. When I get stuck on revisions, I flip over to my MG book and vice versa. I’ve completed a detailed outline and the first three chapters, so it’s moving right along.

I guess the old mantra is true

    I love that this is just a natural part of your lifestyle, revisions, edits, drafts, etc. I think blogging is just as much a natural practice and exercise as your outlines.

      I absolutely agree, which is why I decided to start blogging again. 🙂 I have been bit by the creative writing bug. My mind is constantly mulling over characters and plots. It’s a good life!
