There's a lot going on today!

First off, today, I turn 16!
This morning, I hit send for the first time, sending my entire book off to an agent for the first time.
I also am guest on Meghan Gorecki's blog! I am talking about creating a writing plan when life gets busy. Check it out on her blog, Every Good Word.
I hope you all enjoyed your summer as much as I did. School is coming on fast, and I am teaching a Creative Writing class to three kids this year as well.


  1. Hi Alyson!
    I just read your guest post on Every Good Word (which I also just found today) and then popped over here and fell in love with your blog!

I don't blog that often anymore, but I'm going to be following your blog and you can send me a comment on my (dormant-ish) blog if you want to chat. :)

    1. I'm glad to hear how God's been working in your life, Ellie : )

Writing a Book With Two POVs and a Linear Timeline

I've never been one to write an "easy" story.

Even the project I'm working on now, one I began almost four years ago, was one of complex construction. Mainly, this book was made up of two side by side points of view. Two different characters told two different stories that only intertwined at crucial points throughout the plot. Before I even began, I knew that it would be a difficult story to write without causing mass confusion. 
I'd never written a story anything like this before (and even now, I'm editing to change one of the storylines completely), but I knew one thing:  {My time-line could never back-peddle.}

This would prove an annoying decision, but one that drastically improved my story. Every story is different, but I can outline the logistics of what I did to make this linear timeline possible. 
First, decide your primary main character. With two stories, not just two perspectives on the same story, your story will appear to have two main characters. You…
