I've become increasingly frustrated with MEOW SISTERS. I am finding the alternating first-person viewpoint to be evil. It hurts my feelings! At the same time, everyone who reads pieces of it say they find the style to be really cool, so I must be doing something right. In the midst of my frustration, I've come up with a completely new concept for a YA novel. I'm excited and I'm considering taking a break from MEOW to start it. But it's really a scary prospect and I'm not sure if I'm doing the right thing.

If I'd taken a break from my first novel, would I have ever come back to it? I'd like to think so, but I have no way of knowing.
