A New Adventure

I have begun hopping once again. I’m in the process of writing my very first YA Paranormal Romance (Title still in process). While most of my novels have been written in the form of first person and present tense, I’ve decided to change it up. This novel will be in third person and present tense. The tense may change to past but it depends on how the story comes out, whichever is easier for the reader. I’m committed to getting their story told because it’s unique and brings back happy memories of innocence.

But don’t worry, Blowing the Whistle hasn’t been forgotten in the least. Sometimes there needs to be a huge step back to get perspective before going back to edit/detail/re-write. Ally’s story will be shared and enjoyed sooner than I ever thought, so that’s good news for you and me.

  1. Good luck. Present tense third person is a challenge to maintain.

    Good luck! I often have issues deciding whether to do first or third person and usually change my mind about halfway through. Isn’t that just the way? I look forward to hearing more about this project, it’s always nice to bump into a fellow writer!

      You’re completely right. I’m far enough in to be rethinking it but too far to go back at the moment. Thanks for the luck, nothing like late night writing πŸ™‚

    Much luck with all your projects. It always helps me to be working on more than one, even reading books. So far only Stephen King can completely capture my undivided attention…I miss the Dark Tower series. Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

    How’s the project going? I prefer past tense but a lot of YA is in present tense. miki–G. Miki Hayden

      I have finished the novel however I’m doing my third pass on it. I’ve kept it in present tense with third P.O.V. although I’m still unsure if it will stay that way but we shall see. Thanks for stopping by my blog, I appreciate it. πŸ™‚
