I’m going to reach 50,000 words on the YA book this week! YAY!
Also, I’ve started writing the summer book I was talking about earlier, but I’m still not sure which perspective it should be in…
Also, this is just a side note, but it’s something that matters deeply to me: love is love. God is god. We’re all earthlings, regardless of either of those things. Getting pissed off or hateful about someone who isn’t attracted to the same gender you are, or who doesn’t believe in your imaginary friend, or whatever it is that’s getting you so riled up, is stupid and childish. If we all focused half as much energy on cleaning up our trash, taking care of our loved ones, and just being better people as we do on putting one another down and telling everyone who doesn’t follow our individual creed of belief that they’re wrong and we’re right, then this world might just be a better place.
Thanks to a lot of very loud, very insecure, and very mean people, it’s not.
People need to start treating people like people.
I was looking at the outline for my YA book and it struck me as very funny that it goes from very short chapters with one or two small ideas that need to be addressed (and are thus easy to keep track of) to a litany of larger ideas that have been giving me a headache to think about over the past few days.
Moral of the story (ha ha, I’m punny! :D) is that I am better at working on shorter chapters with one or two ideas to move the story and character development along because I’m not able to handle more than that in the first draft. It’s kind of a bummer, since I’ve got a few minor things that revolve around my main character within the plot and I’ve not been keeping good enough track of them, so I’m going to have to stop worrying about them for now. Good news is that they’re details I can always add later!
Horray for outlines!
Oh yes, God loves everyone! But, you who proclaim this message, do you?
