Dmmetler Posted November 12, 2012 Share Posted November 12, 2012 DD (almost 8) wanted to try this year, with a very conservative goal (and since November is a busy month for us, anything she could do largely on her own was something I could get behind). I think she'll meet her word goal easily (she's about 3/4 of the way there now)-but I notice in reading what she has so far that it's not really a novel-more like a set of short stories with the same main characters, and not a lot of development even there. She has some great ideas, but I think it's more a several thousand word outline than an actual novel. Do I let it go entirely? Wait until after she's met her goal in numbers and then go back and encourage revisions? Some other option? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
