I'd been working on writing another magical tale based off of Jack and the Beanstalk, but turning it to a YA version, instead. It was fun, but required a lot of hard work. And thinking. I have six kids (including a toddler who is basically three children in and of himself, haha!), and sometimes, writing my book required too much brain power. I finally put my book aside in February and began working on another book that I was really wanting to write.
My current YA romance is called, "Lucky in Love." It was fun, romantic, and it came easy. The marathon suddenly got easier for me, each chapter a sprint with an obtainable goal. Now, seven months later, I am nearly at the finish line! My book is finished, has been through some beta readers, and is currently in the process of going through my editor. I am so excited to have this book in my hands! The plan is to have a box of books shipped to my house in time for Christmas, which means completing my edits and formats by early November.
There is no medal for completing the marathon involved in writing a novel, but even better is holding the finished product. I'm so excited to get this book done! My characters were fun to write, and I hope my readers enjoy them as much as I have!
