Episode 21: YA author Brian Katcher

Today we have award winner Brian Katcher on to talk about writing for young adults, starting new, starting over, and really killing your darlings -- like, whole project kind of darlings -- and how to move on from disappointment and celebrate success. We also talk research and balancing work with a day job.

Brian is a school librarian and the author of five books for young adults, including the Stonewall Award winner Almost Perfect, which also was named one of the American Library Association's 2010 Best Books for Young Adults. His debut novel, Playing With Matches, was an ALA 2009 Best Book for Young Adults, and his most recent novel is Deacon Locke Went to Prom.

Episode 18: December prompt responses & January prompt

This week, we talk about how our new mantras and words are going, and we talk through our first week of January. (We both have a cold, so I hope you'll excuse some croaky voices.) Then we read through our December writing prompt responses - the one where your characters meet outside the timeline of your novel.

Finally, we share this month's writing prompt, which is basically to go look at some resumes or CVs on a job-hunt site, and put yourself in the place of one of those people. What was their job interview experience like?

Write 500 words about it.
