psyched

Over at Tribal Writer: building your author platform even if you're not published yet, part one, a series I started partly because the information I have found on author platforms for fiction writers is so unsatisfying (it's been much more helpful to immerse myself in books about social media and Internet marketing) and surfing the brain waves: managing your mind and unleashing your creative beast.

Been getting into a YA frame of mind in order to write a YA paranormal story due for an anthology end of Jan (I have 10,000 words to play with, so I'm psyched). Hit the bookstore yesterday and picked up SHIVER by Maggie Stiefvater, THIRTEEN REASONS WHY by Jay Asher and HOW BEAUTIFUL THE ORDINARY: Stories About Identity including one by the awesome Francesca Lia Block.

And found a new blog to adore: WHITE HOT TRUTH by Danielle LaPorte because of articles like this one.

What a gray, rainy day.

That is all. I'm off to kick some ass and look cute doing it.

....plans for which were promptly curtailed by back spasms.

I'll be looking forward to reading more of both your Bad Girls and author's platform blogs. I've begun working on the latter so I'm always interested in hearing what others have to say about it.

Also, I was going to pop over to Facebook and mention this but since I saw this post, I know the Write Like a Bad Girl essays are going over very well. I was going to link to them in my weekly post on writing but several of my friends had already found them and blogged about them (which didn't stop me from doing the same). Thought you'd like to know we're enjoying them.

And I hope your back feels better.
