Point of Growth


I'm working hard on Enchanted No More and currently writing the ending out of sequence. In the Luna books, the heroine's point of growth, what she learns to be a better person, is the most important plot/subplot of the book. I realized this when I was setting up Aric's, the hero's, point of growth. I knew I wanted it near the end, then realized HIS point of growth shouldn't be after hers, that is an indication that the story is about him, not her. So I did some thinking and figured out how to stretch her point of growth naturally beyond his. I am pleased with the story line.

May you understand your craft today.

Any chance there will be a YA Heart book?

We've seen the world from adult/fam/residence PoV, I'd like to see it from an adolescence.

What's it like growing up on Celta, Grove Studies, how flair strength might create cliques.

Do high family children interact with common children at all?

Perhaps we could follow Antenn's future heart mate.

A story from first passage til second. With all the angst a teenager can experience.

Everything revolves around the little beasts, every emotion is more intense once those hormones start hitting at puberty. Gotta be tough to control temper tantrums when the child can use flair to destroy a room, or teleport away to hide... How much worse for the girl who has the crush on the captain of the sport team, only to have him experience passage and 'know' she is not his heartmate

Again, I am stealing time from writing to comment. Maybe I can do a YA book, since it's on Celta, and I do remember the angst of the teenage years.

Usually in the Heart books, I've had only hero and heroine POV. I don't think that I will change that in the books themselves.

Any Fam POV stories would probably be just published on my website (when I get back to it), or little bits elsewhere (with permission from my editor, and I am STILL cleaning up Zanth and the Landscape Globe).

I am having trouble with Vinni's HeartMate Avellana. She ain't speaking to me, nor do I know their story.

Thanks for the wonderful ideas.
