You might have noticed that I had a poll set up asking about interest in a writing challenge. (Thank you to the person who voted!) I was originally planning on doing a daily writing goal type challenge, but a different opportunity presented itself and I thought that it would be awesome to participate.
If you've followed the blog for very long, you know that I'm a bit obsessed with "Go Teen Writers". I credit that blog and my 8th grade English teacher for convincing me to keep writing.
The We Write Books (I don't do hashtags.) challenge is a way of walking through brainstorming, writing, and editing an entire novel with a group of other young writers. At the end, Ms. Williamson and the others over at GTW are going to have a contest for writers up to age 21. It's a bit slower pace than NaNoWriMo.
I'm currently finishing up writing my rough draft of Fractures and my focus is starting to shift to what project I want to tackle next. As much as I really want to write the cool sci-fi idea I have floating around in my head, I really need to return to my dystopian novels. They've been sitting on the shelf for a few months.
Yes, it's time to dust off Crossfire and re-write it. I'm not going to lie--I'm a little terrified. I love this story and I want to make sure it's told well. I've decided that I'm going to plot using the Snowflake Method all the way through and not skimp out on plotting time, even though it might be tempting.
I'd like to invite all of you to join me in this endeavor. My writing process posts will include updates on the challenge. As always, I'd love to hear how your writing is going!
