I'm Cyn-sational!

Cynthia Leitich Smith has been called "the sweetheart of the kidlitosphere," and rightly so - her website/blog is a one-stop shop of all things kid lit.  Cynsations turns 10 this year, and I'm honored to be a part of her posts highlighting debut authors!  Check it out here!

Kristin, I read your interview. It was great!

Hey Kristin! I really like what you have to say about the "writing rules", about how there is no real "set way" to go about writing. It can get overwhelming sometimes, because I read all kinds of stuff about how many words I should be outputting a day, how I should be writing at the same time every morning, and on and on and on, like if I don't do those things my writing will come out looking and sounding like chicken-scratch. I very much appreciate your approach to the craft, and I plan on picking up your new book soon!

Hi, Mitch! I absolutely hear ya - there is so much out there about "how to write" that we sometimes forget that *we* own our stories! I still have to remind myself of that, when I'm putting too much pressure on myself to produce, produce, produce. When I do, the writing falls flat. For me, at least. :-) Guess I'm a "small steps" kind of gal!

Thanks for visiting! And I hope you enjoy the book! ;-)
