And I don't know if it's BECAUSE of his understanding or lack thereof, but he's holding me to our bargain about getting a rough draft of the new work in progress (WIP) done in 30 days. Now, I think he should cut me a little slack because I've been (a) editing like crazy on Courtesy and Patience, since both agents who requested it came back with a kind no and (b) outlining the WIP because I couldn't just go with wherever it took me like I had hoped.
So technically (in my mind) the deadline should be June 4th. And if I can write 2k a day, I can have a rough draft done by then. Albeit a REALLY rough draft. So far I have only 7k written on it, but the characters are coming easy, there's not much world building, and it's a short book. Besides, June 4th feels like a natural deadline since that is the last day of Kindergarten and I won't have as much time on my hands after then. Anyway, don't you think my husband should extend the deadline? Please say that I'm right!
Oh, and about the book? It's Young Adult (YA) contemporary. I don't like to put any other genre labels on it more than that, but just for any (are there any?) inquiring minds, it's the Beatles book I might have mentioned before. A SMART romantic comedy. And I'm looking for any research: do ya'll have any favorite romantic comedy movies, especially ones with band/music lover themes? Or books, CLEAN Young Adult books about teen girls, romance, and rock music. Any good ideas?!
