As the title of this post suggests, I completed the first draft of my YA novel ‘Dear Jackson.’ It’s only novella length right now (I was trying to get the story down quickly so I would have something to work with), but hey, it’s a full storyline. I stayed up much later than I should have last night finishing it, and I think everyone in the neighborhood heard me when I went downstairs and declared that my book was finished.

My Dad: Which book?


I’m going to give myself three weeks before I start editing (which will consist of a lot more writing so I can fill in some spaces) so I have fresh eyes when I look back at it. In the meantime, perhaps I’ll speed write another book?

Please tell me if you’d like to beta read. I’d like to make a list so I know how many/who is beta reading for me. I really appreciate it!

Hopefully the second draft will go half as quickly as this one did (5 days of writing, to be exact)!

Until next time,
