As of last night I am almost a quarter the way through my rewrite of my novel as a YA book. I am changing at least five of the characters to make them teenagers: eighteen or younger. Most of the prose is not age related, but one of my main characters was a major in the United States Army, and now I’ve had to bust him down to a Private First Class. He was the leader, but now he’s just a spear carrier. It might even be more interesting this way, especially if he rises above and beyond the call of duty.
I might be able to get the first draft of this book finished by the end of the week. :: crosses his fingers::
