#VoicesofYA Tag

The lovely Jem Jones tagged me to do the #VoicesofYA tag! Seeing as this is my first tag, please forgive me if I mess some stuff up. Anyway, onto the questions!

~What draws you to YA~
I think, for me, it's the journeys the characters go through. It's really special to see them go through stuff that we young people struggle with. It gives us hope. It's encouraging to see them rise above obstacles. If they can do it, so can we. 
~Describe your writing process. Do you like outlines and structure, or seeing where the story takes you?~
I structure, more or less. I have a fairly basic outline. I also found I like to map out my conflicts/climaxes beforehand because my plot seems to have more dimension this way. I didn't do this for my first novels and I'm struggling in edits because of it. Also, if I have any excerpts that come to mind for certain scenes before I start drafting it, I write them down eitheron sticky notes (my desk is covered in them) or 3x5 cards. 

I might act…
