Page 60

Up until now I've been working on my little book without really trusting in my own ability to finish a large piece of writing. And yes, I'm probably only one-third through. But still, I feel like the pieces are coming together. Every time I add new material, or tighten up the previous chapters, it just feels like something I might be really proud of one day.

I'm going to start meeting with a good friend of mine from school who is also writing with the intent to publish in the same genre (young adult fiction/juvenile fiction). We're going to read each other's work and give feedback, etc. This is the first colleague that I've showed my writing to, since being in a small writing group in college five or six years ago. I'm excited and a little nervous.

I hope that at the end of summer I will also be at the end of my book. Here's hoping!

I'm sure that when it is finished, that it will be the best young adult fiction/juvenile fiction book ever put out there, and I can't wait to read it (though I think now I do qualify as a full blown adult...kinda scary). Good luck and happy writing. Love you and miss you!!

this book is gonna be rock-on cool!

if not ab-fab. totally.

(and here not speaking, of course, of one of those four-letter diet words. nor of some confounded ab machine, wherein sometimes the only exercise is found in taking it outta the box and trying to figure out how to put it together so we can look together when we don't really need to except for 'the system.')

but i digress.

every chance i get ...

rock on, amy!
