Veronica Roth Is A Genius

I've chosen to be lazy with my blogging this week. That means no new material from me, but doses of brilliance from others. My previous post was all about writing a breakout novel. Today, I want to share a link to another piece of awesome.

Veronica Roth, an upcoming YA author you should be on the lookout for, blogged about something she learned in college. Thankfully, she's not only a genius, but was awesome enough to share the lesson with her readers.

And save my drafting life in the process.

What did she blog about? Find out here.

Your welcome, buddies. Your welcome.

Now tell me: do you have any other advice for me this week?


  1. Excellent post! What she says is so true, but I never heard it said so well. Thanks!

  2. The backpack!!! That's a great metaphor for ruthless editing! Excellent!

    My advice to you? Continue being as fabulously fabulous as you are already!

    take care

  3. That was a great post. Just remind me about this if I get protective about cutting stuff. :)

  4. THANK YOU for this! Totally made my day. I'm glad you found the advice I got to be as useful as I did. The Backpack FTW!
