I know I've been pretty quiet (well, silent) about what writing projects I've been working on in the last year or so. Honestly, that's because I haven't been working on much (read: nothing) at all. (Although my short story, published by YARN this summer, has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize, which is super!) Basically, I took a long break to study abroad, graduate from college, intern/work, then travel in Asia.
But now, I'm finally working hard on a manuscript again. It's contemporary YA. Here's the synopsis. It's called Untitled.
Olivia blogs. Ilona, Macy and Hayes read, obsessively, everything that Olivia posts on her soul-searching online journal. It’s their new reality show: really real and really good to read with popcorn and chocolate chip cookies. But when Olivia’s problems stray from boy problems to scarier things like loneliness and depression, Ilona and her friends must cross the boundary between their reality show and someone else’s reality, and barge into Olivia’s life. If they can find her off-line.
I finished the rough draft last week. It's a baby rough draft, only about 55k, so I plan to revise for a while before sending it to my lovely agent. Then who knows, right?
