if authors ever wonder if school visits make an impact: the first author i ever met was neal shusterman. i said i wanted to be an author, & he said "that's great! if it takes you 10 years, that's fast." & i was SO MAD. but it stuck. 12 years & 4 books later, i sold my debut 💀

I try to be this writing friend, though I have to be careful I don’t come across too blunt or authoritative. An editing background thickened my skin against writing critiques, but I know other writers don’t feel the same way. Still hoping for a CP who doesn’t pull their punches!

Let's talk about being a good writer friend, y'all. It's a hard job! The publishing industry has a lot of gatekeepers and there's a weird culture of "niceness" that can screw a person up if they're more on the blunt side.

maybe what we call intelligence is just insatiable curiosity, and instead of trying to turn children into better test-takers we should be focusing on making them fascinated.

How do you find time for #writing? I save this old trick from the #mom handbook for when I’m desperate because it always works. 😁 #writer #problems
