A scene that might have come right out of Red, White & Royal Blue, in which America’s First Son falls in love with a Prince of England, which brings out the critics as well as the supporters, such as this one. (Photo by Clem Onojeghuo on Unsplash)

In my last post, I wrote about how I’d read both The Story Grid by Shawn Coyne and Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston, and that I was interested in doing a story grid analysis of McQuiston’s novel. Well, in a bad-news-good-news twist, I have had to switch tracks.

I applied to and was accepted into The Story Grid Editor Certification course that begins on September, 14! I am beyond excited! The prep work for the course is considerable, so I’ve been concentrating on that instead of analyzing RW&RB.

However, I want to say that though I came to the book as a skeptic, I finished it as a fan. I LOVED the novel, as did my writers group. We’re a tough crowd and rarely agree on anything but we all agreed that McQuiston’s debut novel is worthy of the writer’s highest compliment, “I’m so envious! I wish I’d written that!”
