WIPjoy #15

15. I’d never edit ___ out of my WIP!

Nerissa? I mean, she’s kind of central to the story.

But assuming you mean something not key—something that could be removed—I’d have to say the moment between Nerissa and Tim in the garden, after Nerissa’s mom has made her feel bad about her size and weight. I feel bad about my size and weight, and I hate feeling that way, so that moment is as much for me as for any girl who might struggle with being imperfect in the eyes of the world.
