Writing Surprises (or Boy or Girl Voice?)

Tip of the Day:
Check out the Diversity in YA Reading Challenge! You could win a ton of new books by spreading the word.

I'm working on my YA WIP that involves two different aspects for me: 1) alternating first person povs; and 2) a boy main character.

And guess what? My crit group loves the boy's voice a lot more than the girl's. Woah. I did not think that would be the outcome.

What that means is that I need to really work on the girl's voice and go through her chapters carefully and make her as fun to read as her brother.

Can I do it?

The challenge is on.

What has surprised you about your writing?
