Mashup:

Here are some great links on writing, the industry, and all things book related. We highly recommend you read them!

  • Reasons Why FOREVER Takes So Long To Finish
  • – Maggie Stiefvater’s reason as to why FOREVER is taking so long to finish – this is cute and funny.

  • Lessons From Queryfest
  • – Great query advice! You’ll probably learn something new here – and it’s all taken from 5 different agents. Definite must-read.

  • Gimics Don’t Make a Good Story
  • – Literary agent Scott Eagan talks about why you need more substance to your stories to make them stand out.

  • Grounding the Reader
  • – Kidlit.com is awesome – and here’s a wonderful post on grounding your reader and immersing them in the “fictive dream”.

  • What Star Wars Teaches Us About Character Introductions
  • – The title of this article says it all (and focuses on the original 3 movies, of course!). Wonderful article on how to write and create great characters (plus, it includes Star Wars! What’s not to love?).

  • She’s Such a Character
  • – Janice Hardy (author of The Shifter , which I reviewed) talks about character development – and what questions you should be asking yourself.
