A Vantage Point of Asses, chapter 7

Sort of… I must say I’m liking it quite a bit:
This is not necessarily the final version of the first chapter but It should give you an indication of my writing:
The title, now reverted to ‘A Vantage Point of Asses’, refers to the main character’s general point of view as she is in a wheelchair. It’s going to be a YA novel and I changed from Butts to Asses because Asses has a more clear double meaning, here.
There will be a bunch of humor and a bunch of asses (and cute butts, too). Well, you get it. It starts like this:
Imagine being at butt height every single day. Jenna Carter knows exactly what that’s like; she’s been staring at people’s butts for years, spending most of the day sitting in a wheelchair. That’s her awkward predicament.
I’m not going to finish in time but I don’t really care, I just like that I have an idea of what I really, really want to to write. People with disabilities are not often represented in fiction. I always wanted to do this, but I never quite knew where to take it. I felt a little under-qualified, too. I should be an expert, being in a wheelchair and all, but I guess I never felt I had a right to assume I am the right person to represent people with disabilities in a book. I feel better about it now, though. Do you think it’ll appeal? What do you think, followers?
I’m really curious to read yours!
Love love love,
It’s a little crude, but you don’t say “You’re such a butt” to someone unless it’s lovingly. Whereas ass…
It’s NaNoWriMo time! I’m attempting to write a 50.000 word novel in 30 days. I aim to not finish, but I’m writing a YA novel and here’s my start. Funny? Not funny? Should I quit while I’m ahead?
