What I'm Reading
There's a new Jennifer Echols book out, so you KNOW I'm reading it! I just love everything she writes!
Last time I did one of these, I hinted at the secret project I was working on. Now it's not a secret anymore! I'm revising PUSH GIRL with every free second I have. I have my mind wandering to a few different projects when I'm not working on it -- I still need to revise the beginning of IN REAL LIFE, and I pulled out my NaNo '09 project for my MFA residency workshop, and I got some really good feedback on it, so I'd love to figure out how to make that work.
For once in my life I have more ideas/possible projects than I have time for, and that's pretty damn exciting!
I've been watching all of the episodes of Push Girls on Sundance*, and that show is pretty great. I highly recommend it, if you get Sundance and you get a chance to watch it.
Also, I've been loving this new blog: Disability in Kidlit
The contributors all give excellent insight into writing characters with disabilities, and the things they've shared have been so useful in my writing of a character with a spinal cord injury who uses a wheelchair. Add this blog to your daily read, even if you aren't writing a character with a disability. I promise you will get a lot out of it!
*So I google the show to find this picture, and there is actually an ad there to pre-order the book. What is my life right now? Whee!
