YA Novel – Friday Report #3

Padme, John William Godward

Added more to the end of the beach fair scene. Must remember emotion is the key; writing that conveys emotion is writing that gets read; writing that sells. I’m uncertain about the next scene to write, but I’ve got plenty of room before reaching the first major plot point. I feel like this book might shape itself differently from what I’ve envisioned. If it does, fine with me. This first draft may end up being solely focused on Juli, her relationship with Greg, and her time in the Valley of the Shadow of Death.

Only about a page written this week. The writing is going slowly, in patches, short paragraphs, footsteps into the story.
