Several months ago, I posted an article discussing how social networking, and Twitter in particular, has changed the solitary life of a writer. And as skeptical as I was of Twitter to begin with, I found it to be useful and a good thing.

At the beginning of a new book is always an exciting thing. I’m always ready to see where my characters take me, and often times it is a surprise to me.

As a writer, I have learned while there are many shared experiences in the writing game, there are just as many differences with how we work.

The moment strikes and it’s like a frission in your brain. Your heart starts pumping faster. You have the sensation of fireworks going off in your head. Pleasure radiates through your entire body until it reaches the point where you want to start screaming, “Yes. Yes. YES!”

Starting Memorial Day weekend, I took a two and a half week stay-cation, and expected to be able to work on the editing of Nowhere Feels Like Home, but life doesn’t always turn out as expected.

Ok, with today being Saturday, I didn’t technically commute anywhere, but I do have some thoughts that came to me while I was relaxing this morning, trying to get ready to face the day. I looked back at all of my sites and realized that all of a sudden I appeared to drop off the face of the earth.

Pegasus has long been my symbol for imagination. You put wings on a horse and imagination takes flight. Of course, my fondness for Pegasus may have been fostered by the number of trips we would make by car from Southern California to Northern Washington during my childhood. We made the trek at least twice a year, and invariably we would gas up at the Mobil stations.

Since I review books for Lulu Book Review I am frequently looking at other author’s websites to gain a little understanding about the person behind the work I am making a determination on whether I want to read their submission for review or not. For those who do not know how the process works, I’ll give a brief overview. Authors who would like to submit their work for review will post a query on the Lulu Book Review blog Pick Me! tab. Along with the name of the author and the title they would like reviewed, we request a link to where we can take a peek at their work along with a brief description of the work itself and why we should review it.

As I read through some articles this morning, I ran across a great video called YA haters by Jackson Pearce which was a video response to some ridiculous remarks by the New Yorker, Entertainment Weekly, and The Atlantic about the young adult genre. I have embedded the video in this post so you can enjoy it as well. Jackson Pearce is an up and coming writer, who has her debut novel, As You Wish coming out in August 2009 (and is currently available for pre-order.) I really enjoy Jackson’s sense of humor and quirkiness, and have browsed a few of her other videos as well. Maybe I’ll have to turn Denny into my camera man and start V-logging too. I’ll get Phoenix to play me because she likes to pose for the camera. (All right, already. . . I digressed.)

In the aftermath of the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, my mind has been mulling over lessons learned. I think it’s important to look for opportunities to grow and learn, and I usually find them. Especially when you are experiencing something new. So, as I drove to work this morning, my mind was busy critiquing the weekend and letting me know the areas where I need improvement.
