“I resolve to write at least 100 original words every day during the year 2013.”

Ran across this blog fairly recently. Given how much we talk about authors needing to keep at writing to be consistent regardless of what they actually write, it's interesting to see someone else who's doing that and willing to share their efforts with the public.

[up] Commentary time, y'all:
  1. Works for some people, doesn't for others. I like showing people my thought-wreckage because it helps me go places; I like looking at other people's thought-wreckage for the same reason. That doesn't work for everyone, but neither does closing the door.
  2. Not especially relevant to me, because I am not writing for teenagers per se—I'm writing for anyone that wants to read my work and enjoys and understands it well enough to keep up. But it's probably worth noting that the teenaged characters that do appear straight up ditch school due to more pressing matters at the outset of the story. Not that this isn't important, or that school isn't important, but... I would rather not write an awkward Edwardian boarding school romance, which is what the story would likely turn into were said characters to stay in one place. There, I said it. Moving on.
  3. Were I capable of disconnecting from the digital realm without seriously disrupting certain elements of my life, I would do this. Happily.
  4. "Let's talk about gender, baby." Short answer: Yes. Long answer: While I am not one to say that gender identity has anything to do with gender role, I am very much opposed to prescribed gender roles, and I really appreciate when people who otherwise seem very "normal" come out and say, "This is wrong and I don't believe in it." Good on her.

[up] The thing about school settings that I think YA's audience generally are less interested with the conflicts that are often associated with it, especially the character clichés.
