Save One Edit 9

I have a title for my new YA fantasy

So far I’ve written quite a bit for this story 🙂 But there have been times when I get stuck because I’m mostly pantsing it with a very rough outline of where things should head. When this happens I go back and edit what I’ve done. I find it’s very helpful setting the story in stone. And […]
