One Day More
Clarion starts tomorrow. I’m in sunny San Diego catching up with an old friend before the workshop begins in earnest. I’ve finished two-and-a-half of the three stories we will be discussing on Monday, and I’m pulling out all the stops to finish Holly Black’s “Tithe” before tomorrow. It’s a gritty YA novel with teen drinking, smoking, drug use, frequent cursing, an attempted rape and an attempted murder… in the first twenty pages. In other words — it’s awesome.
I feel good about the stories I’ve read so far. They are stuf’t with cool ideas. I’m looking forward to giving and receiving notes with these folks. We are an orchestra of different voices, each bringing a unique experience to the table.
I’m not sure how much time I will have to blog while I’m at Clarion, but I’ll do what I can.
Wish me luck!
