Starting a New Project

We took the kiddos to see "Guardians of the Galaxy" last night, and all of us loved it (though, that beginning was just rude). Quill reminded me of one of my favorite nephews, a nephew who was in trouble* with his parents a lot when he was growing up.

And today, the main character for the MG space opera that I outlined last spring started talking. Probably not a coincidence.

I outlined the first two books in the series last spring. I've just been waiting for the character's personality to show up. So, I'm going to see where this takes me. I've never written a middle grade novel before.

I'm excited about this project, though.

*I just realized that most (but not all) of the nieces and nephews who voluntarily hang out with me have had interesting stretches with their parents. I'm not going to analyze that one.
