Diving in again...

So I'm diving back into my YA novel...yeah, the same one. I love it. I'm committed to it. I'm ready to revise again to make it the best it can be. I really want you all to have the chance to meet Kate and Scott and the gang.

I've revised the first chapter. It starts in a different place. I'm eliminated a main character (boy, was THAT hard) and I'm re-envisioning many scenes. Trying to up the tension, make the supporting characters more real, and make the plot more seamless, rather than split into three sections.

I'm in the middle of chapter two. I've got a long way to go. But it feels good. Wish me luck.

I know you can do it! Can't wait to read it. I know that cutting characters isn't easy but in the end you'll see it's better!

Yay, Kris! Revisions are SO hard, believe me: I can totally commiserate these days. :) I finished my revision last night, so I KNOW you can do it too. Good luck, and email me if you ever need to chat!
