Lovely Links

Hey there! I’ve been collecting up some links for a while now to share with you in one compact, beautiful little post. You ready for this? Let’s go!

Smoore’s Adventures

Smoore’s Adventures is the blog of my writing friend Shelby, and I definitely suggest checking her out. She’s a total sweetheart, and besides being an awesome writer, she’s also a seriously talented musician. Like me, she just finished her first year of college, and now she’s getting back into the swing of things with her blog for the summer.

Miss Snark’s First Victim: The 2013 Baker’s Dozen Earliest Info Ever

Are you a writer and don’t know what Miss Snark’s First Victim and/or the Baker’s Dozen Agent Auction is? Make sure to check ’em out, because this is an opportunity you do not want to miss!

Chapter One Young Writers Conference

I know I’ve talked about it before, but if you haven’t checked out Ch1Con yet, you definitely should. 🙂 It’s a conference I run with some friends (and a lot of help from my much more worldly parents), targeting teenage writers. Our next event will be in Chicago in July, 2014, which is still a ways away of course, but I’m already SO EXCITED for it.

WriteOnCon

If you don’t know what WriteOnCon is, I wrote a post about it last year, which you can read here. If you don’t feel like clicking on that link, let me just say: It’s the most amazing free online writing conference focusing on kidlit in the universe EVER. (There. How ’bout that description?)

Anyway, they’ve just announced the dates for the 2013 conference, and I’m kind of urging my summer vacation to go by faster now, just so WriteOnCon can come. That’s how much I love it.

Veronica Roth, author of the Divergent trilogy (and my personal hero), is going on tour!

Guys, I’m a huge Veronica Roth fan. I am a HUUUGE fan. I am a fan to the point of probably being kind of creepily obsessed with all things her and her books. (Like my friends and I literally drove six hours to Chicago the other weekend just to stalk the set of the Divergent movie.) Obviously I’m not going to stop you from voting for her to come to your state on tour, because I know I’m not the only one who adores her to pieces, but if you wanted to maybe help me get her to come to Michigan instead, I would really appreciate it. Just saying. Because I love her. (And you, whether you vote for Michigan or not.)

… And that’s it for now! Thanks for checking out the links, and I’ll see you next time!

  1. it’s funny you mention divergent i am like 200 pages in and i do not like it very much. i thought it would be like hunger games because it comes up on most of those reading lists but i am not a fan. i plan on finishing the book simply because i bought a copy.

    • I’m honestly a bigger fan of Veronica Roth herself than her writing. Like, I’ve read Divergent and Insurgent at least three or four times each at this point, but she, as a writer, is just this massive inspiration for me that surpasses the influence of her books. (And it’s funny–I was looking back through old blog posts the other day, and I found one where in the comments I was talking about how I was reading Divergent for the first time, and I wasn’t a big fan of it then, either. Now it’s one of my favorite books. It definitely grows on you.)
