On the 19th, I'll be featured in the 10 Minute Novelist Twitter chat about filter words. We'll discuss what they are, why they weaken your writing, and tips for eliminating them. To join the chat, simply follow the hastag #10MinNovelists on the day of the chat at 9 PM EST and join in. Be sure to include the hashtag in your responses!
On September 24th, my good friend and fellow editor, Sarah Wright, and I will be hosting a chat on Twitter through the 10 Minute Novelist group. We'll be discussing the dos and don'ts of giving and receiving criticism when it comes to writing fiction. We'll be asking some questions for those of you interested in participating, and we'll be giving some pointers as well. To join in the conversation, simply follow the hashtag #10MinNovelists during the event, and reply, retweet, and eavesdrop to your heart's content!

Join me on Twitter on July 11th for another chat! As an avid reader and writer of the YA genre, I want to connect more with others who enjoy the same genre. I'll be chatting about my favorite YA books strictly from a reader's point of view. If you have any recommendations for what to read next, I'd love to hear them! I also have some questions I'll be tossing out there for you guys to answer, such as what subgenres of YA do you enjoy the most? Again, the focus won't be on writing YA but rather reading it. After all, writers become better writers by reading!
To join the chat, just follow the hashtag #RMNSchats on the 11th at 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Don't forget to use the hashtag in your answers!
On May 9th, I'll be hosting a Q&A session on my Twitter page all about writing! Bring your questions about grammar, punctuation, world building, plot development, character development, dialogue, and anything else you want to chat with me about. Have book ideas or are struggling with writing a particular scene? I'd love to hear from you! You can submit your questions prior to the event by contacting me here on my site, commenting on this event, or submitting your questions to me on Tumblr. To join in the conversation, follow the hashtag #RMNSchats on the day of the event!
