For the sake of my own accountability, and to feel like I’m making progress, I’m going to try and post works in progress on a regular basis.

I’m working on the third draft of a novel for my friend Grace Garrison. She’s 11 years old and loves to read. Last summer I asked her what kind of story she’d like and she asked for a story about superpowers. Grace gave me a bracelet she made so one of the key factors in the novel is a bracelet.
The story is about a young girl named Ambry Klavins, whose mother works at a retirement center called Marigold Hills. While visiting the center, Ambry finds a bracelet belonging to an old woman. When Ambry puts the bracelet on, she is startled to discover she can’t take it off.
My goal is to have a decent draft finished before the summer is over.
