Willow by Julia Hoban
Such a Pretty Girl by Laura Wiess
Recently finished (in between bouts of On Writing, which I can’t get enough of, though I feel guilty for not reading more when I reread the things I love) both and realize that one of these, the one I do not own, needs to make its way into my library. Admirable styles, both of them. I kept needing to find out what happened, and finished large portions of each at the end of the day. So Good!
One of my favorite fan fiction writers from forever ago (high school) is going to finish one of my most favorite fan fictions (from forever ago) that has been pending for almost two years now (I want to say, I haven’t really been keeping track. It’s just been a seriously long time coming).
I can’t wait to finish this thing! I’m so excited!
(In reality, of course, it’s going to be a while before she gets to the end, what with the baby and taking breaks and all (loss of enthusiasm, even? That was the reason my other favorite writer never got around to finishing the sequel to her legomance, but that’s alright, because I had a serious love-hate relationship with that story anyway, for very personal reasons). I still can’t wait!)
Salman Rushdie (via writingadvice)
I’m starting to believe this.

You can still make the title of the blog You Rach You Lose or Release McCracken. Your Tumblr can be your main personal website or professional homepage. It’s free and doesn’t require any technical skill. Make sure you upload an image to be your avatar so you don’t have a creepy blue default profile and choose a theme from our theme garden to customize your look.
