I feel like I haven't been updating as frequently or commenting on all of the blogs I normally visit. I have a couple weeks off work and am trying to finish this revision which has taken forever.
The good thing is that I finally feel like I've found the magic puzzle pieces that feel like they will make this story work. I've added some new layers of conflict and choices for my mc to make. Also things where she gets what she wants but it means something she doesn't want as well.
This revision had been going so slow and I was almost ready to put it away and not work on it. See I'd been reading a lot of YA dystopia like Divergent and The Hunger Games, you know books that make your heart race and your palms sweat, and my contemporary MG seemed to be lacking. Then I had this sort of Don't-give-up-dream and I thought about how to add more conflict to my story. I'm excited trying out these new ideas.
I plan on doing the A to Z Challenge so I'm working on my plan for that but for now I'm sitting on the revision patio or in the revision coffee shop if it is raining and finishing this revision.
