RTW: Novel's Love-List

Today is Road Trip Wednesday! What is that? It is a blog carnival where the contributors of YA Highway post a weekly topic and participants write their responses. You can jump from blog to blog to see each blogger's take on the question. 

Topic of the week:

What is your novel's "Love List"?

I think it is a great idea by following author Stephanie Perkin's lead by writing a "Love List" about my book. I'm working on a revision project right now for my Japanese-inspired fantasy KIN for almost four years. It is the hardest book I've ever written since it takes me out of my comfort zone. I wanted a challenge, and I sure got it! 

Re-reading it brought out so many things that I love about the story, and also, the things that I could improve so I can love it even more. So I'm happy to share my list here with you guys.

My Love List for KIN

Uncle mentor
Moon Festival 
Stories by the river
Scrolls 
Secret maps
Frightful forest
Sharing stories
The old well
Mountain views
Shells
Teatime
Siblings
Moonlight paths
Kimono designs
Koi pond
Shrines
Rain
Saved by a moon child
Hilt of katana
Unusual creatures
Dragon eyes
Kitsune 
The alcove 

The Moon Festival is something I'm very fond of in the story. It appears three times in the novel and shows the progression of what is happening in the character's lives. 

I could keep going, except, now I want to go and keep working on this story. Thanks to all those who stopped by.

Is there anything that makes your WIP special to your heart?
