Transmission from Secret Writing Location

This week I had a medical procedure, then I crashed out and slept all day in recovery, then I skipped town to a secret location to FINISH MY NOVEL PLEASE.

You know the situation is dire when you have to leave all you know to have a hope of finishing the book by the day you said you’d finish it, and dire still when you slip into a tailspin of all caps and BEG THE UNIVERSE PLEASE LET ME WRITE TO THE END OF THE NOVEL THIS WEEKEND.


I wanted to tell you two things:

The Hudson Valley YA Society event with Micol Ostow at Oblong Books in Rhinebeck went really well—and what a great experience to read with Micol! I wanted to thank the store for having us and thank everyone who came out to see us. Thank you! I’ll post some photos on my website when I get home.


I was excited to be a part of the wonderful online writing conference WriteOnCon this year. You can read my post on writing magical realism here, and if you comment you could win a signed ANZ edition of Imaginary Girls! (Note: Same cover art, same insides, but in paperback and with slight differences you’ll notice if you get one.)

I’d say more, but I have a temporary login for wifi and it won’t last much longer.

Wish me luck? Please?

    Good luck! Go girl! And I gave IG a shout out on my blog today because you inspire me. So get going that next one finished because I’m dying to read it!

    Good luck! Inspire your writerliness with the caffeine source of your preference and chocolate/cookies/cupcakes!

    Good luck! You can do it!! *\o/*

    Your WriteOnCon post was terrific, btw. Not sure if I left you a comment over there, but I really enjoyed reading it. Timely, for me — my mind often drifts toward weirdness when I’m writing, and I’m finally learning to just go with it, lol.

    Good luck with your writing. I’m going on a vacation next week and I can’t wait to write in coffee shops that are not my own. Loved the post at WriteOnCon too.

    Glad you’re okay. Don’t beg the universe too hard, though. Let it come, and it will.
