WHAT I’M READING
This week I finished Julie Halpern’s GET WELL SOON and Jennifer Mathieu’s THE TRUTH ABOUT ALICE. Both were great examples of voice (Mathieu’s handling of multiple POVs was inspiring) with well-developed and deliciously complex characters. I’m also halfway through amazing work from my writing pal Cara Davis. Next up: Hannah Moscowitz’s BREAK.
WHAT I’M WRITING
Revising, revising, and more revising. HAPPENS FOR A REASON is looking great (she says humbly). I’m trying my hand at more detailed plotting for a new WIP since that skill definitely needs development. We’ll see how that goes.
WHAT WORKS FOR ME
Character Q&A. Interviewing my characters helps develop voice and it’s amazing what kind of random personality quirks will pop up.
WHAT ELSE I’VE BEEN UP TO
