Book reviews & writing tips from a wannabe YA writer
After the craziness of this year’s NaNoWriMo, I decided to put myself on a writing hiatus for the month of December. But the thing with hiatuses (hiati?) is that one day, they end.
With January nipping at my heels, I’ve started thinking about what I’ll tackle first. The options:
Even though I have about 90% left to go in my rewrite of last year’s novel, the logical thing would be to go back to that because at least I’m on the third rewrite and not the first one.
But—please don’t tell my first novel—I’m not sure the spark is there anymore. This new hussy of a novel sashayed her way into my life, and every time I think about my first January of the aught persuasion, it’s her I imagine spending it with.
I’m just afraid that if I don’t go back to my first now, I never will.
Who should win out: Logic or love?
