Today's entry is about what I'm trying to do with the novel I'm live-blogging this year - and it has a host of writer tips! I discuss the usage of Neil Gaiman's "pornography plot" technique, a discussion on Catherynne Valente's "Sacred Text" methodology, and the secret project I've been beta-testing on my Twitter account without anyone even knowing.
So just to remind you: a $10 membership in this year's Clarion Blog-a-Thon will get you access to my dystopian YA novel along with a lot of advice about how to write (and how to not write) a novel, short story critiques, access to all of last year's Clarion stories and critiques, and entry into an extra-special raffle that will feature prizes by, among others, Neil Gaiman and Catherynne M. Valente. (See what I did there? Mentioned them in the entry, because they're helping me out with the blog-a-thon? Ooo, what marketing.)
In any case, I know the economy's tough, but I'm doing my best to make it entertaining. Kindly do me a favor and donate if you can.
In response, I promise I won't mention this again until at least Wednesday.
