Friday (as covered by Stephen Colbert and The Roots)Today's Tune:
This will be a fast entry today.
First: I've been interviewed over at Michelle Merril's blog! Click on through the link to read my ramblings about writing and reading if you'd like.
Second: I'm thinking about starting two new features on the blog. First is a "What's The Appeal?" series where I dissect the appeal of well-known YA characters (Bella Swan, Edward Cullen, Katniss Everdeen, Miles "Pudge" Halters, etc.). So I'll ask you to post your favorites in comments! Who would you like to see me dissect? The goal is to figure out what attracts readers to certain characters.
The other series I want to start is something along the lines of a Query Doctor. I'm one of those weirdos who actually enjoys writing queries and boiling down plots to their central conflict, and I'm pretty good at it. So, would anyone be remotely interested in this? If so, I can post my email and have you sent me queries to pick apart and rebuild :)
Happy Friday, everyone. Have an awesome weekend!
