Re: Favorite misheard song lyrics

Dramarama's "Anything, Anything" My lyrics: "I got wasted. She got mad. Called me names that she'd called her dad. He got crazy and I did too." Real lyrics: "I got wasted. She got mad. Called me names then she called her dad. He got crazy and I did too." I like my lyrics betters. They add dimensions...

Re: YA books for a fifteen- year- old boy

I second Neal Shusterman! I haven't read Unwind, but I've read so much by him and used to check his books out over and over from the library. Downsiders is my favorite. Also, Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card if he hasn't read that yet. It probably goes without saying, but since nobody has said it so...

Re: Ask Nathan

Hi Nathan, Okay, this kind of funny. Kind of. I had two lists of agents going since I had two manuscripts that I was considering submitting. Because one of the manuscripts is adult and the other YA, one list is of agents who represent adult work and the second is of those who represent young adult s...

Re: Oh delete, you're so tempting

I feel your pain. I reached word count of about 90,000 on a WIP before I decided, "Wait, no, I don't want this to be third-person omniscient. It should be first person!" Looking back on that statement, after already re-writing and completing the first person version, I realize how crazy that sounds....

Re: Whom do you write like?

Okay, I just put in a completely separate story and got Doctorow for a third time. Now I really must investigate immediately! Good thing I work at a bookstore. This site is dangerously addictive. I really should be working on my best selling novel right now. And yet, I'm going to find something else...

Re: Whom do you write like?

Tolkien, Cory Doctorow (twice) , Chuck Palahniuk, Now, when an agent asks for a writer to compare themselves to established writer's in their query letters, I can copy...
