This is my first week to participate in this. I am not sure how I found it but I did learn that "Growing Up YA" and I have the same blog theme and we both love YA...so I think we were meant to be web friends:)
The last few months I have had a heck of a time finishing my novel. But recently, I have been really sticking it to it and making a point to move forward. When I say "finish my novel", I really mean edit. Editing uses a different side of our brains than writing does (at least that's what Dawna says). Thankfully I have a publisher that believes in me and wants me to have a wonderful story that I can be proud of. The point of my blogspiration is: write from you heart and don't give up. Editing is a daunting task but is important! Luckily, I have had the time to hone my writing skills and have learned many things over the past few months. I am growing as a writer and am very appreciative.... thanks to my brilliant talented writer friends.
