First things first: Have you seen Carrie Harris' new website? Man, I don't think I've ever had such intense website envy. Also, check out her blog for her very first ARC contest (she doesn't have them yet, but she's already promising the lucky winner her first born! [uh, I mean first ARC!]).
In other news, winner of my contest, Angela A, has interviewed me over at her lovely blog. If you would like to know more about my current projects, who inspires me as a writer, and how I'd survive a zombie invasion, head on over.
As for a real post...wow, I'm blank. Basically, this is what it looks like in my head:
Must edit. Must edit. MUST EDIT NOW.
It's practically the only thing on my mind. I don't know about you, but when I get like this I have no creativity. None. It's like the right side of my brain has shut down entirely, so that my flaky left side can actually concentrate on the task at hand.
So, um, maybe I'll send you to more of my cool friends? I like to rely on their awesomeness like that.
Kiersten has had some good posts lately. Have seen her brilliant post on paranormal romance yet? You need to read it if you missed it. And today she's talking about how writers are not their characters. So true. I am not, in fact, a 16-year-old boy ninja. Unfortunately.
I really enjoyed Kristan's post about her magic fridge. Oh, and there's some great writing stuff in there too. I've been through the same epiphanies, sans fridge, sadly.
The Dread Pirate Sara has been on a rant streak lately, and I particularly loved her one about people saying "There's no rush. You're young. You have plenty of time." Been. There. I was almost 22 when I decided to take writing seriously. People said I was still young. But some things take a long time to happen and if you want it you should reach for it no matter your age! Hi, here I am almost five years later and I'm still reaching. Whew, I guess I could rant about that too.
And finally, Heather Hansen talked about her personal writing rules a few days back. I found them very powerful—things I need to remember myself.
Okay, there we go. Have fun with those. *Charges back into Editland*
