Well, writer friends…I haven’t updated in a long while because things writing wise haven’t been swell. Or happening much at all. Life has been insane this past month or so, but that’s only part of the issue.
See, I finished The First Drop and it’s done now, just tweaks here and there as I reread it, but otherwise. DONE. And, I’ve been floundering since. I was plotting this contemp YA, but I’ve been feeling a little, I don’t know…like maybe I’m not “good enough” to stand out in the sea of contemp YA novels. Figuring out new plot ideas is always hard for me, but contemp is even harder, despite that I love writing it.
I have danced between this contemp YA story and a sci-fi idea for weeks. Every time I sit down to write I end up frittering my time away…working a little on both, but not really moving forward. And that’s where I am now, just back-and-forth, trying to figure out what the heck I want out of my writing life. I’m so twisted and frustrated and lost and just floundering.
I wish I had a better update for the end of the YA Buccaneers Spring Boot Camp, but I do really appreciate the awesome support this boot camp brought me.
