Re: What do you do well?

I've been told that I create intriguing villains, and develop my characters well :) Thanks for posting this! It is nice once and a while to be reminded that even though we are always learning, we do have some things that are already good in our mss.

Re: Best Dystopian Novels

My favorites have been: Divergent (HIGHLY recommend), the Uglies series, and Matched. They each take a different approach to the idea of a dystopian environment that's very interesting.

Re: What is your writing weakness? (Let's call this therapy)

Hm. Very hard to say. Besides motivation (there always seems like there's chores to be done or books to read) I'd say it's trying to be artistic. I write young adult fiction. A lot of my artsy stuff gets cut in revision. Which is good. It's all just hangover from school when I would be required to u...

Re: Character Creation Process

For me it all depends on the type of story I'm writing. For instance, my first two books were based on a story I'd known for ten years. The characters were already there. I just fleshed them out based on what happened to them. But if I get a Shiny New Idea I might write down a character description ...

Re: Protagonist blog idea

I agree with Matt and Sommer, even if it were my favorite author I probably wouldn't read it - mainly because part of the fun of reading a book is getting to know the character. If the character is already out there though, some of the magic of the book is gone.

Re: Titles

When in doubt, name it after the main character (Harry Potter, Eragon) With my current WIPS, which are in a duet, I named them each after the most important piece of setting in the book that sets the plot moving. In the first it's Griffin's Song, after the pirate ship that ruins the protagonists lif...
