She's always up to something…

Getting ready to send it!

on September 21, 2014

I’m still in my existential angst, but now I’m thinking that maybe my decision to make the manuscript into a romance was a little premature.  But I got some really good ideas, namely that there needs to be more conflict with my sorority and fraternity and that it needs to take longer to mesh the two groups into one team.

I just attended a Webinar by Gordon Warnock on New Adult, and I’ve read Deborah Halverston’s Writing New Adult Fiction, and honestly I think both of them are describing a type of New Adult that’s not really being published yet.  But I also think it’s the kind I’m writing, and the kind I’d want to read.  So I’m going through What You Stand For again, and making it funnier and more conflict-y (is that a word?).  Because honestly, young people are funny!  It seems looking back that we laughed all day long.

And there can still be *love* and there can be serious big thoughts and all the other stuff.

So, short entry today, but I have a lot of work to do!
