So curious about other people's creative process: how do you take your ideas and see them to fruition? One of my favorite exercises is to create a vision board of my new work. Essentially, I map out the character, journey, goals, and mood in a collage. And use that piece of handmade art as my north star from discovery draft to final manuscript.
On NOVL, my publisher's Tumblr that celebrates YA novels, I divulge the messy, chaotic creative process at work.
