The World of a New First Draft

Intimidating?  Yup.

Exciting?  Absolutely. 

Terrifying?  No question about it.

I’ve really taken the dive into my first full draft of my YA.  I’ve done plot layouts, walked my concepts through The Plot Whisperer breakdown, written character assessments, and spent lots of time with it rattling around inside my brain.

But… well… WORDS on PAPER?  Not so much.

So I dove!  And I quickly learned a few things about writing a YA draft that help me keep moving along, and I thought I’d share them with you as well.

No more putting it off!  Simple as this sounds, we have to write the manuscript before it can ever exist.  My guest post here on WritingandIllustrating.com goes over how I plan to do just that!
