The Novel: Checkpoints

Question #2:

Now that I have arrived and have stated my purpose, I thought I should divulge exactly what type of book I am writing:

Young Adult

I know, not really a big surprise considering the recent surge this genre is seeing, but I love it. I have been writing teen stories for as long as I can remember. They do tend to run along the romantic side, but hey--you need that teen angst in there. What YA would be complete without it? (In my opinion anyways)

Now, it will be a series because I don't think I can fit everything I want to say into one book. It would end up being one million pages.

So, on that note, very roughly, here is the main content I will be including in this blog about my journey:

1. Writing the Book
2. Revising/Editing the Book
3. Researching Agents/Market/Publishing Companies
4. Drafting a Query
5. Revising the Query
6. Sending out the Queries
7. Waiting/Biting my nails (proactively, of course!) -- *sidenote* can you bite your nails proactively?

In addition, I will be including any helpful hints or tips that I pick up along the way. I'm sure I will go back and revisit this list and add more to it, but for now, there we have it.

It's in no particular order either even though I've numbered it. These are just the things I want on there from the getgo. And also, lots of bits of randomness and life moments :D.

I am prone to thoughts of randomness. I may also jump around a bit on this blog--again, random things occur to me all the time, and you may just be the lucky (unfortunate?) ones who get to read about it.

Alrighty, I think that's it for today. It's late. Kind of. You know what I mean :)

Bye for now!
