I don't usually do posts like this.  But I found this really awesome post by Kristin Nelson and wanted to share :-).

The article talks about the dedication and effort it takes to get past that 20,001 word.  Sometimes it's great to hear about another person (in this case Andrea Cremer, a published and successful YA author) who hits that wall like everyone else--and crashes through it.

I think the most important thing to take from this is: Keep writing!  It's worth it.  Just buck up, and write the crap out of that mid-section!  Because you love your characters.  Because you love your story.  And because the world deserves the chance to get to love them, too :D.

Happy writing,

Ninja Girl


  1. I so needed to read something like this right now. Am starting a rewrite actually and it's to tedious thinking about rewriting a book you've essentially already written! Thanks for the interesting read :)
