Thank you to Two Writing Teachers for holding space for us to sharing our writing every day in March.
I am very fortunate to have a writing group where three of us have been together for almost ten years. We’re eclectic; one writes comedy and adult pieces (although she began with a middle grade novel, her path has lead her in a different way), one is writing YA fantasy, one is working on a YA Horror and our newest member is working on a YA piece that sounds very Gothic. I love all their writing.
Me? I am working on what seems to be the never ending Middle Grade novel in verse. It’s realistic fiction. I’d been on sabbatical with it for a year and am just returning. Like any relationship that has had its trust issues, we are having ours. I think it’s afraid I will leave again. There are days that I am tempted. Poetry contests abound. Single poem submissions are inviting.
I want to get the novel completed with the major shift I have made. And so I remember that I promised to get it done and I will.
