You Have Two Minutes




The amazing teams for the #YABbootcamp were announced yesterday, and I have six of the most incredible people on my team! Some are new friends, some old friends, but I know we’re going to do amazing things over the next three months. Who are these great people? You can check them out of Twitter, and a lot of them have websites, so go and look at those, too!






TEAM DENALI (aka The Great Ones)



Cynthia   ♥ Megan   ♥ Lois   ♥ Kristen   ♥ Amy   ♥ Katrina



We are each setting goals that we’d like to accomplish over the next three months, and we’re ready to cheer each other on. It’s the YA Buccaneers Spring Writing Bootcamp!  If you don’t know about it, you can check out all the details over at our website.






Like all great Bootcamps, we’re off to a running start! We’ve each set huge goals for ourselves:



Cynthia wants to finish the last 10-15K on her WIP this month. You can SO do this!


Kristen is revising Book 2 in a series AND working on the first draft of Book 3! Amazing! I couldn’t keep it all straight!


Lois is drafting a Contemporary Fantasy.  Yay! I love this kind of book!


Amy is working on a gazillion things at once: revisions & drafting! You have ALL the crazy there, girl!


Megan is also working in the crazy corner, trying to complete three novels in progress. Go for it!! Go big or go home!


Katrina is working hard on her own goals of growth and renewal. I’m with you there.


And I’m currently ripping apart an old friend, hoping to clear away the cobwebs and find the beauty inside. Yay, me! (I can cheer myself on. Don’t say I can’t!)



We’re going to set some goals as a team and help each other reach the summit!  But first…bootcamp. And that means learning how to put it all together. Ladies, I’m sending you all of the pieces above. Once this bootcamp is over, you’ll be able to put together the typewriter in two minutes flat. (Okay, not really, but the essentials to any successful endeavor begin with a solid foundation. We’re going to get down to basics and whip our darlings into shape!) Are you with me?  I said…..are you with me? Let’s do this!

    Psh! I’m ALWAYS in the crazy corner!

    I’m with you! Aargh!

    So far, I’m actually finding it easier to work on two parts of the series at once. It helps me keep the whole thing consistent. I haven’t looked at Book 1 in a year, so I have to go back and check that plus my notes a lot, but 2 and 3 are both fresh in my mind. If that puts me in the crazy corner, I’m okay with that. 🙂

      The crazy corner is THE plaace to be, in my opinion! 🙂 Means you have massiveness going on, right?

      That’s probably true, working on all of them at once would keep everything consistent. I’m so impressed by what you’re doing! Can’t wait to see how it all turns out, Kristen!

    Thank you for putting together this motivational post!

    I hope you do well “ripping apart the old friend.” Sometimes it helps to revisit an old manuscript with fresh eyes. I did that with my current WIP after going on a writing break in January, and so many things I needed to fix just popped right out at me.

    • Heidi Sinnett says:

      Cynthia, I know. Maybe I’ll discover it’s dusty and creaky and needs a good repair. 🙂 (I know it does, and I’m excited to get into it again.)

      Thanks for dropping by. We’ll have to have more of a chat, the bunch of us, soon!
