Something Brilliant Goes Here

I’m still working away at the revision to my YA mystery.  I’ve reached page 100 out of about 175.  For this revision, I have a new favorite tool that I picked up from Leslie Connor, author of WAITING FOR NORMAL, at a recent SCBWI Michigan retreat. When she get completely stuck on something, she’ll write “Something Brilliant Goes Here”  on the manuscript and then move on.  Since I’m doing a final revision, I will definitely struggle for ten minutes or more on a tough transition.  But I feel happier about going on than I used to because I’ve laid down a marker in my manuscript and made a promise to myself.
