So I’m near the end of the process for the WIP–a YA novel set at a boarding school–and I’m at the point where I’ve gotten tons of great advice and critiques and suggestions but I’m unsure how to incorporate them. Oh, yes, some of them I already have–but it’s the little niggly ones that are eating at me. The ones that make the story richer, that make it more complex, that make it awesome. Sure, it’d be okay of I stopped now. But I won’t. The last mile of a marathon is the hardest but also the most worthwhile.
