First off, I’d like to thank everyone who commented, e-mailed me, and shared links on Twitter and Facebook about my recent post “First drafting: Now 96% faster.” I’m so glad to hear that some of the techniques I shared are resonating with fellow writers. I’m planning to do a (much shorter) follow-up post soon on a wacky new revision technique I’ve been trying, so stay tuned!
In the meantime, I have two new blog posts up elsewhere today:
In “So much for a quiet summer” (at Emu’s Debuts), I talk about all of the progress that’s happened on All Four Stars (copyedits! first pass pages! cover!) during the supposedly “slow” publishing season of summer.
And in “GETTIN’ LUCKY: An Interview with Peggy Eddleman, Author of SKY JUMPERS,” (at OneFourKidLit) I talk to the terrific Peggy about her debut middle-grade post-apocalyptic adventure book, which I (and, more importantly, my MG-aged writing students!) couldn’t put down.
