Late last year, I dug Elite Falcons out from the bottom of the "Unfinished WIPs" pile. To borrow a NaNoWriMo term of art, I "pantsed" my way through the planning process, didn't take any notes, and thus have long since forgotten how the plot was supposed to go.

If there's another topic that you feel would also be relevant on this blog, please feel free to pitch it as well! These posts … Continue reading Writerly, Readerly, Geeky Guest Posters Wanted!
Disclaimer: I'm just a young adult who published a novelette in her mid-teens, so I'm by no means an expert in any of this. Much of this post is based on observation and speculation. Today, authors (and artists in general) of all levels of fame are becoming far more accessible to their fans. They share … Continue reading Authors & Fans
I borrowed a few new kidlit and YA books from the library this month. I know the limits of my schedule (and the size of my book bag which, alas, is the same size on the inside as it is outside), so I'm going with but a small handful this time around. 1. The Books … Continue reading January To-Read List
