my NIP (novel in progress)

Okay, I wouldn't really call it "in progress" but I do have all the character's biographies written up but I still need to look up some crucial medical terminology but I decided to give some information about it to receive some feedback.

It's a young adult novel (but I hope others will enjoy it), about four teens going through problems who are brought together by knitting. I have mapped out some of the knitting horrors and myths to write about, ex. "the love sweater curse," if boys knit they have to be gay, (which adds more drama to Frankie's life since he's a jock and has two older brothers), and the biggest horror...different dye lots in the middle of a project! *enter overdramatic screaming here* (It happened to this one girl I know from my first year in 4-H Crocheting and she only had a few weeks before the 4-H Fashion Show before she realized that they were two different colors of pastel yellow!)

That's all I have for you on that subject. I'm hoping when I get a job, I can get a laptop and be able to work on the story all the time instead of taking up the family computer in the living room, just to be able to zone and write.

I'm planning on taking my cousin and brother bowling this weekend (or if not this weekend some other weekend before they go back to school). Which is *gets out calendar* in 3 weeks!! (Sorry, Mrs. H, I hope the incoming freshman are better to you than they were last year—but honestly, I seriously doubt it).
