Road Trip Wednesday
This week's YA Highway Road Trip topic:
What are your writing/publishing superpowers (drafting? plotting? writing queries?) -- and what's your kryptonite?
Able to dart around large plotholes in a single bound, catch repetitions and redundancies that are paragraphs or even chapters apart, make readers fall in love with offbeat guys, and write dialogue that makes you want the characters to go on talking all day.
Look. Sitting in front of her monitor. Is it a computer programer? A Facebook junkie? No.
-Too bad doing outlines (before or after the book is done), writing action scenes, and giving verbal pitches can make her crash and burn...
What about you? What are your super-writer powers?
Oh, and the winners of my How Many Have You Read/Heard Contest are: Chicklitgirl, Carol and Alicia. Thanks everyone for participating, and I'll be sending out emails to winners later today.
