Now, I have a feeling I've already done this blog-hop, but I figure it can't hurt to do it again. A different day may bring different answers.....
What are you currently working on?
I'm trying desperately to finish the book I dropped when I started edits on An Unstill Life. It's slow going because I'm struggling to find my way back into it. But with any luck, I should be done by the end of the week. I'm calling it Finding Lana Jones, and it's about a girl who has been in juvenile prison since she was eleven and has just been released at eighteen with a new identity.
How does your writing process work?
I'm weird. I don't write beginning to end, but start somewhere near the middle. There's always one scene that sparks a book for me, so I write that first. Then I work both ways from there.
How does your work differ from others of its genre?
I think I'm willing to push things further. I don't always let the sex happen off screen or flinch away from subject matter that might make people uncomfortable.
Why do you write what you do?
I wrote a whole post on this over at the Musa Blog just a few weeks ago! I write YA because I love the newness of everything and the uncertainty as people discover who and what they are.
Now, because I've already done this, and passed it on once, I think I'll leave it up to my readers to decide if they want to be a part of it. So if you want to, grab the questions above and answer them on your own blog. Just let me know in the comments so I can come and see what your process is like!
