Re: Weird Writing Habits

An update on the Squee:

The Agent got back to me last week (The day before BEA) and requested a partial! EEE! This is my first request of any kind. My first QUERY of any kind. So I have sent out a bunch of other queries so that I can possibly have options if this agent offers rep. Happy!

Re: YA Paranormal Romance KEY OF EDEN VS.2

Better, but I still don't understand the choice. Why is the world in danger? Everything about her ability sounds pretty cool, she gets to go to Eden? That's awesome! Why does she have to go to Eden?

A book someone needs to write

Re: Brandon Sanderson Class Online

Lol. Thanks!

Actually, compared to some of my writing teachers in college he's fantastic. At least he has high energy, he's trying to engage.

Re: I'm desperate for writing podcasts.
