So...I've been a little busy lately with you know trying to get my house up for sale, working, having a baby, oh and did I mention that I FINISHED the edits for the agent that requested them? Oh yeah... MY PAPER HEART is no long a crossover YA romance, but a contemporary women's fiction! *fistpump* er...kind of a fist pump...
So without further ado the line that completely changed my main character, Libby, from my first thought of her as a sorority girl with issues to what she really became; a young woman looking for acceptance anywhere she could find it until she found out the one person she needed it from was herself....and SCENE
"I'm going for a run…" I mumbled, defeated as I sprang from the table, not even bothering to look back as I slipped into my shoes and ran out the front door and down the cobblestone driveway.
Running was a sure fire way to get rid of my problems. I literally felt like I was running nowhere, with nowhere to go and no one to be waiting for me. I ran every morning with my pledge class to make sure that I made weekly weigh ins, I ran as quickly as I could through my notes before a test hoping that I would actually be able to remember something on a test, and on that last night of finals I just happened to run into my boyfriend going down on my roommate.
Maybe running wasn't such a bad thing after all. If I ran to Louisiana then maybe I could run away from everything back home and just forget about Chicago. Forget that I had no place else to go.
