For the next several days, I will be at junior highs teaching about how to write a short story. I'm so excited! First of all, I get to be with teenagers and that's the best.
Second, I get to teach about what I'm passionate about-writing.
Third, I get to give away books. Yahoo!
I tend to be long on words, so short stories are a challenge for me, but I'm working on a few about minor characters in the Watched series that my fans have asked me extensive questions about. Keep your eye out for those. I'll probably post them here and on my Facebook page.
In the meantime, my post about the short story vs. the novel is on the Indelibles' site. Go check it out here.
