What's in a Blog?

Since this is a brand new blog, I thought I'd start by giving a brief rundown of what you'll see here during the weeks to come:

Monday Musings
What's it like to be a professional writer? Did you always want to be a writer? What books have you written? Why do you write for teens? These are questions I get asked A LOT. I'll answer some of my most Frequently Asked Questions, so you can get to know me better.

Tuesday "Top Five" Tips
I'll let you in on a secret: you don't have to follow a strict set of rules to be a successful writer. BUT, there is still a lot you can learn from the generations of writers who've gone before you. I'll post some tips I've learned over the years from expert a few of my own!

Wednesday Wordplay
I like writing exercises. They keep me thinking creatively, and outside the box. Especially when I write from a prompt given to me by someone else, because it brings me fresh ideas. Now, it'll be your turn to try prompts from me.

Thursday Thoughts
I'm not the only one who posts helpful things online for teen writers. I'll post links from websites and other blogs that you might be interested in.

Friday Forum
I want to hear from YOU! I'll post questions and discussion topics. Feel free to post questions of your own!

And, hey, while we're at it:

Do you have questions for me? Can you think of some topics you'd like to see discussed here on the blog? Please post them in the comments!
