So this is kind of a strange blog post... But I've been trying to get a hold of a friend of mine who seems to have fallen off the face of the planet. So, in a desperate attempt- Britt, if you're reading this, please call me or email me or whatever but let me know you're okay!
I'm over at Elizabeth Barone's Blog today talking about inspiration for FIERCE and Tori's struggles (following your dreams, being a girl in male-dominated areas, the culture of victim blaming) and also some other things like Shane being a hot mess in his upcoming book. Come say hi!
And don't forget, FIERCE is still 99 cents!

WHAT AM I
What have you been up to?
It's the FIRST FRIDAY OF JUNE. WHERE IS THE YEAR GOING????
Since it's the first Friday of the month, my friend Bailey and I owe you/ourselves/each other a blog post. The topic for this month? The WRITING JUNK DRAWER
So, what is in my writing junk drawer?
I'm planning on organizing this drawer pretty soon (seriously), but as of now here a few things in what I've labeled the "junk drawer"
-Stickers: I have star stickers and dot stickers in various colors. I use these for my revision process. I color code subplots. I'm planning on utilizing these for character color coding as well. Each chapter has a "card" that I put on my plotboard, and then put the corresponding stickers on. It's a nice visual for me to see what's missing, what is silent for too long, what has too much going on etc....
-A hole punch. Doesn't really need explaining. I hope.
-Some flashdrives. One that looks like a zebra because why not.
-Staples (which have been there since I got this desk, because I don't use them)
-Post-it notes. I have these everywhere, so I don't really have any explanation for that.
-A staple remover. See the above staple note.
-Earphones that hook around your ears. They are for running. I have not yet tried them, but think about them every time I go running and my earbuds fall out.
-These super awesome alligator clips that each have a word on them (some say 'read', some say 'keep', some say 'file'). I love these, but I'm not sure how to incorporate them yet?
