View Full Version : My First Young Adult Novel

I am happy to say I am actually getting somewhere with my story. After struggling to even get past a first chapter for many years, I have finally gotten half way through chapter three. My only hope is that I have done a good job with it. I guess I will find out when I finally complete it and begin the gritty task of editing. Wish me luck.

Many authors will tell you, and I agree wholeheartedly, the real writing doesn't even begin until the editing.

Writing *is* revising.

Look forward to the many pleasant surprises which are sure to appear during the "gritty" process.
