Wannabe Writers #57 (Drugs, sex, cursing)
Where I am in the writing process: Unpublished! So, I've decided to continue speed writing through my ELIXIR novel--my mermaid novel--for the time being. My goal this summer was to finish a first draft and so that's what I'm going to force myself to continue doing. I'm at 50.8K. Originally I figured it would be about 60K long, but the way it's look it might be closer to 70-80K. So, I still have a long way to go.
My current problem(s): I guess just getting back into the flow of a writing schedule. Also, I've been reading romance novels lately (those are my ideal beach books) and it's made me wonder...
My question(s) this week: Drugs and sex and language. How much is too much in Young Adult?
