So, I am working on my YA novel, it falls in the contemporary category. The subject of my story is intense. The bond between the characters strengthens throughout the story. It deals with relationships, coping with tragedy and what is really important. The characters explore unfamiliar territory, experience growth and realization of who they really are.
Developing my characters as individuals is fun and challenging, giving them each their own voice. I am challenging myself with just how far to push a topic. I find myself questioning, how far is too far?
We’ll see where it takes me.
