Secret Middle-Grade Novel

Shhhh. Don't tell anyone else, but I've got a secret crush. And my YA jinn novel is not going to like it. I started a new book today, and it's going really well---already at 2200 words. It's a middle-grade novel, and it might be the biggest waste of time ever. Or not.

But it's oh so fun!

P.S. I wanted to add that my mom just read it and said it's hysterical. Phew! As we all know, our mothers are the best, unbiased critics out there.

I'm impressed. 2200 words in a day already! You must be inspired.

Uh oh. Should I feel partially responsible for the break-up of your relationship with the jinn?

Word verification = crablogg. Which is clearly what I keep over at Jacqui's Room.

That is a huge start! (Twotimer!) ;)

I AM inspired! And I'm totally stealing details from my own family to write this.

Ooh! So naughty! (But at least it's fun.)

Amber Lough said...

Wheee I just added another thousand words! I've never written like this before.

And now I am going to bed, where I can collapse.

My mom is always one of my readers. I've got to have some way to balance out the feedback.

Oh you fickle woman! And for a younger book, at that. Oh well, no harm in flirting. :)

It's fun writing something you really love isn't it? Go for it! Feel the love!

Does it involve selling a granny? Grin. You're on fire, girl!

Good luck with it.
MG is my genre and I love it. One of these days I will attempt a YA book....when the ideal calls me.

2200 words. Nice job!

Vijaya----hmm....maybe..... ;-)
