Hi, Christine! sorry this took so long - I did not know anyone could find the site to join. I'm not conversant in Nanowrimo but I believe it is simply intended to get you to complete a novel draft in one month. I guess people try for about 50,000 words but perhaps I can let someone know you are looking and we can contact you later unless you make it to tonight's meeting. if so, do ask the group! Linda
Very cool about the agent! Good luck tomorrow...or break a leg; I'm not sure which is appopriate... I would agree with you about not having enough YA strong, female characters. Have you ever read the Maximum Ride books? I like them alot.
