Y stands for...

yacht. All writerly folks want to have a yacht to relax in. *you feel it, don'tcha*

YAP. All writerly peeps yap a lot and listen in on others that yap. (Cuz that's a great way to learn dialogue.)

Year. Sometimes it takes a year for writers to write their lovely stories, sometimes longer.

Yearn. All writers yearn for the title, AUTHOR.  *sob*

Yell. Writers have a thing called protagonists and antagonists that sometimes yell, shriek, shout, and howl. *I haz a thesaurus, uh-huh*

Yes. All writers yearn to hear YES! The agent loves ya, baby. *grin*

Young adult. Some writerly peeps write for this audience.

Younger. I write for this crowd. The younger than YA bunch. I do have a YA in my head. It swirls in there until I'm ready to write it. *that's how I'z outline*

Yucky. Form rejections taste like this.

Join me tomorrow for Z. I'z took the challenge and will leave you with a quote or two.
