"Why I'm an Outliner... Sort Of. I'm not sure if this makes sense, having written this at three in the morning, but I wrote about how I came to love outlining (well, my own version of it anyway)."

"Following on from my previous post, here is a better interpretation of "Write What You Know" that focuses more on what we have experienced emotionally than intellectually."

"University Is Eating My Life, plus a bonus question: What techniques do you use to get writing (or anything) done when your time is limited? Some of this could apply to working writers as well."

Getting Back in the Writing Saddle

Posted on January 12, 2012 at 12:00am 0 Comments

I have a terrible habit of losing all motivation to write every few months and end up screwing around on the internet or in whatever computer game I happen to be interested in at the time (Skyrim and the Sims 3 at the moment, a combination more addictive than chocolate). Regardless of my flighty brain, I always manage to get back to the keyboard, open that Word Doc I left festering and get the hell on with it.

Hello Anne,

I also write YA with magical elements - I'm new to shewrites and looking for a virtual writing group, or some mutual critique buddies.  I'm at the point where I could use some more serious feedback!  I'm also an avid reader and excited to branch out in YA and make more connections.  If you have any advice or are interested in swapping writing or forming a group, LMK!

My best,

Melanie
