I found myself at a part of my story that just didn't fit. The thoughts sounded all wrong coming from my current character. So, instead of moving forward with a storyline that was lifeless, I created a new one. A more exciting one.
A better one. Or so I'm told by Anna (talented author and amazing sister-in-law).
I kept the plot and setting, change the names of my MC and her love interest, took them from their twenties and made them teenagers.
Right now I'm just over 2000 words in and more excited than ever before, even though I have a LONG road ahead of me. It's a lot, but do-able, especially with the help of my new writing partner. With the help of Jamie (check out her blog, it's great inspiration) I hope to complete a first draft by summers end. Our goal is 750 words a day. More is a bonus.
