This post will be short and sweet!
I'd like some clarity on the differences between the following:
1. YA and NA
2. novella and novelette
3. critique partner and beta reader
I've noticed a particular writing challenge in blogland that I'll call The WriMo Phenomenon (for lack of a better title). The "big chief" is NaNoWriMo. Then you get a host of offspring, like siblings /cousins or something along those lines. These are JuNoWriMo, BuNoWriMo, NaPoWriMo… are there more of these family members waiting to spring out of the woodwork? How are they related? Just curious…
Head over to the IWSG to read other posts written by a bunch of fabulous writers.

Bullies rule … or do they?
For seventeen years, Victoria Sheek has been a paralegal surpervisor at the Law Offices of Pereene, Carr, and Sevino, specializing in injury law. Rumors portray her as a bully. She remains confident that her position will never cease because of close relations to one of the founding partners, Mr. Carr.
Until Mr. Pereene, the head partner, hires Monica Bowman. Smitten with her because of her resemblance to his deceases granddaughter, Melissa, and his memories of her, she can do no wrong.
Which one of the two girls will keep their position at the firm? It takes and unexpected event to decide the outcome of this rivalry.
