Love List

I love making Love List for my wips. It helps you remember all of the things you love about your wip so you can go back to it on days when you feel like it's the worst thing in the world. I made one for my YA Contemporary Things Left Unsaid, and even though it's trunked for the time being, those are the things that still make me want to rewrite it (someday).

YA author Stephanie Perkins came out with this amazing concept. It truly did help get me through TLU. I was ready to trunk it at 33K until I found that post. Hopefully, if I ever lose steam on Unfair, I'll be able to look back on it's Love List and remember why I fell in love with it in the first place.

Here are some of the things I love about my wip:

 
Poisoned Apples
 
"The green ones are safe..."
 
 Kick-ass Heroine
 
Deadly Winter
 
Shadows
 
Magic
 
Evil Queen
 
Glass Coffins
 
Cloaks
 
Ice Creatures
 
The Huntsman
 
Mysterious Stranger
 
First Love
 
Forgotten Kisses
 
New Friends
 
Girl Power
 
Long Journeys
 
The Number Seven
 
Family
 
Spellbooks
 
Unforgettable Kisses
 
Loyalty
 
Campfires
 
Sword Fights
 
Flowers
 
Secrets
 
Mirrors
 
Forgiveness
 

 
(Because this list wouldn't be complete without a few of my favorite pictures from the Unfair Pinterest board.)
 

If you want to check out other Love List, here's Katy Upperman's and Alison Miller's. Also, I'd love to see yours (if you make one), so link them in the comments.
 
Thanks for reading!

  1. Raven, your Love List is fantastic! Totally makes me want to read your story. Doesn't hurt that Snow White is one of my favorite fairytales. :-)
