My YA dystopian WIP, The Comfort of Beanbags, is not on hold, but will take longer to write. It’s about getting the world building right. My original conception, reflected in my short story, is fine, but in the expanded version I realized that the world needed to be more detailed, and consistent with the original thoughts. Plot and characterization isn’t an issue; it really is about world building.
I do look forward to this, but I need more time thinking and outlining. Fun, fun, fun.
