I needed help from an outside party.
Andrea and I talk every day and I knew that she’d help me. That way I wasn’t just waiting around for inspiration.
Andrea asked me a great question: what is the end goal of the story?
I knew it so I told her.
She then said, okay, I see how you’re doing part 1 of this end goal but what needs to happen for part 2 to be accomplished.
I thought for a minute.
I honestly only knew one thing that needed to happen and that wasn’t even in this book.
Her reply: okay Whitney, you need to expand your story so you can bring in that part of the goal.
Honestly, I’m so grateful that I have a friend like her.

Andrea is one of them.
Find someone that you can listen to and your work will get so much better.
It makes it easier to write something that has
Have a great week!
