YA Contemporary about Freedom
Hiya, I’m a novice novel writer in college. I’m writing a YA Contemporary, but I will be writing in other categories and genres in the future. I’m a lover of musicals and filmmaking. Wanting to be an author is a more recent discovery in my life, but I just love telling stories in different formats.
I love taboo subjects and questionable characters that make you think. I’m into most genres as long as the book interests me, but I tend to drive more towards contemporaries.
Some of my favorite books: I’ll Give You the Sun, The Catcher in the Rye, Reality Boy, We Were Liars
Not into vampires and wolves. Heavily religious books. Can’t really think of anything else I wouldn’t take at the moment.
Ling is lost. Well, she found an apartment to stay in after being kicked out, but she hasn’t seen herself in years. The only time she ever gets a glimpse of the girl she left behind is when she is behind her drum set performing on stage. When her band enters the Battle of the Bands, she finally sees a way out, but her burdening past and an ex she wants to forget won’t let her leave without a fight.
Here are some best practices for reaching out to a potential CP:
- Include the link to your own CP Match profile! You can find it on your Dashboard. Don't have one yet? What are you waiting for? Anyone with a WriteOnCon.org account can make one!
- Introduce yourself a little, and say what appealed to you about their listing.
- Respect what's listed here in their profile. They took the time to fill it out, and they've included this information for a reason. Don't send a message about a book they specifically say is a Hard No, for example.
- Offer to swap a small sample of your works, so you can see if you're really compatible. First chapters are a good starting place.
- If one party no longer wants to continue the interaction, it's nobody's fault. Sometimes finding the right CP takes time.
Happy writing and CPing!
