Scholarship of Discovery
This project is an exploration of the writing and editing process for a young adult novel. It contains the original rough draft and the final draft (the fourth of four) of the first section of a young adult novel entitled The Survivors. It also includes the author's research into what makes Young Adult literature Young Adult, and his reflections on the writing and editing process in terms both general and specific to The Survivors. Since the main thrust of the capstone project is the manuscript itself, the manuscript drafts form the bulk of this document.
