Past vs. Present setting

I'm starting out on my next project (I really shouldn't until I finish the current one, but I can't help when inspiration hits) Anyway....it's written partly in the past, and partly in the present. I can't decide how to incorporate the two. I was thinking of starting in the present, then going back ...

Re: Second redo for Meg O'Brien Wears A Thong

Re: How to categorize my work???

Wow, I've spent alot of time researching genres, and I'd never seen anything about edgy YA. Everything I read about YA made it sound like it needed to be completely chaste and well-behaved. Thanks for the info--this is my first time out, and I just really want to make sure I give myself the best cha...

Re: How to categorize my work???

But if I make it YA, does that mean I have to take all of the intimacy out? None of it goes into detail at all, but I've heard that YA doesn't have any sex at all. I wish I could form my own category, but something tells me that wouldn't go over too well with any agents or publishing companies.....

In my opinion the story is too mature to be considered YA, but it may be too tame to be considered Paranormal Romance. If it falls somewhere in betwe...

Re: You Know You're a Writer When...

I'm totally with you on 95% of these. Especially the soundtrack thing--I often write scenes based around a particular song, and there are certain songs that i can't listen to without writing in my head. Makes for some somewhat distracted driving occasionally. But as a mother, I must say, I find no c...

Protocol for submitting a partial

I know that you're supposed to put a query into the body of an email, and not as an attachment. Is it the same with a partial? Or is it okay at that point to add it as an attachment?
