YAB Bootcamp – Final Update


YAB-Spring-Writing-Challenge-2014So I’ve seriously slacked on my updates and I’m late with this one, but better late than never, right?

When I started bootcamp, my goals were:

March – finish revisions on the 2nd half of JULES

April – do a final read-through, write a synopsis and get my first batch of query letters ready

May – start sending out queries and (possibly) start on a SNI


April and May – check and check

May started off as planned, but then I got some really valuable feedback from agents and I’m currently working on a revision of JULES. My aim is to have it finished and off to readers by the end of June.

I loved doing bootcamp and having accountability, but I sort-of fell off the wagon for a bit. I wasn’t writing or editing every day like I was used to and my schedule was all out of whack. I think that made me less productive because even when I’m just tweaking scenes or skimming for filler words, I’m still moving forward.

This summer it’s back to what works!

I write YA contemporary filled w/ romance, angst & family drama. Things I like: cats, snacks, baseball, green tea, taking pictures of trees & movies so bad, they’re good.

  1. It sounds like you accomplished a lot even though you fell off the wagon for a little bit. Good luck moving forward.

  2. That’s fantastic that you got feedback from agents! And major kudos for meeting your goals in April & May. That’s huge! 🙂
