Climactic Splashes

“…she stopped paying close attention to his words and when at red lights, examined the rain drops spattering on the windshield so intently that she almost stared right through them. Each drop seemed stuck on the glass, until another drop landed on it and they rolled down the window together, ending in a climactic splash.”

If White People Were Described Like People Of Color In Literature

And now I write books for teenagers because I vividly remember what it felt like to be a teen facing everyday and epic dangers. I don’t write to protect them. It’s far too late for that. I write to give them weapons–in the form of words and ideas-that will help them fight their monsters. I write in blood because I remember what it felt like to bleed.

After all, reading is arguably a far more creative and imaginative process than writing; when the reader creates emotion in their head, or the colors of the sky during the setting sun, or the smell of a warm summer’s breeze on their face, they should reserve as much praise for themselves as they do for the writer — perhaps more.

You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.

You see, in my view a writer is a writer not because she writes well and easily, because she has amazing talent, because everything she does is golden. In my view a writer is a writer because even when there is no hope, even when nothing you do shows any sign of promise, you keep writing anyway.

Tomorrow, I leave for a quick visit to New York, because I’m ridiculous like that. It’s for a housewarming/late birthday party, and I’m super excited to go!

That + I’ll have to do some serious NaNoWriMo catching up when I get back on Sunday.

And since I’d like to not get outrageously carsick during my many hours on the bus this weekend, I pretty much won’t be on tumblr until Monday-ish. Probably. I might cheat a little on Sunday night. We’ll see.
