book's lifecycle? Well, I'm in that first stage. I have a new idea. I've started plotting. And my world is raining unicorns and rainbows right now. I had planned to outline through Christmas and then begin writing in January but the story already has its hooks in me and I've written the first two chapters. This time, it's another YA contemporary. I am loving the contemporaries.
Wish us luck in a long and happy relationship together, my book idea and me. By the way, I am registered at every bookstore near you. :-P
