What I’m Reading
ARC August is still in effect! So far I’ve read Leila Sales’ THIS SONG WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE and SEX & VIOLENCE by Carrie Mesrobian. Up next: Jessica Park’s LEFT DROWNING.
What I’m Writing
I’ve been rewarding myself for sticking to my revising schedule with fresh words. For now the new shiny is called THINGS I SHOULD HAVE SAID. Despite it being a newborn (and my being terrified), I posted it to the YA forums at WriteOnCon. It’s getting so much helpful feedback. Letting my work out into the wild this soon is very different for me but it’s been totally worth it.
What Inspires Me Right Now
Music! So far, my WIP playlist is really getting me through. Angsty, brutal, anguished. Love it!
What Else I’ve Been Up To
The past couple of days have been all WriteOnCon all the time. Yay! Not mad about that AT ALL. There’s so much awesome advice for all writers, not just kidlit. The articles can be viewed at the main site. I’m having a hard time pulling myself away from the forums because there’s so much amazing work in there. I really want them to be books already so I can read them!
