TCWT: "Write a letter to an antagonist."
ZH: Dear Jeanine Matthews,
I understand your reasoning behind manipulating Dauntless to kill Abnegation and Divergents. You are greedy and afraid. I admire your intellect and organization, but obviously do not condone your behavior. I would be lying if I didn't say I think you deserved to die at the end of Divergent, but the sequel is only 2 months away, and I will finally learn what has happened to you. Until then, I hope you think about what you did wrong.
I'd been considering buying a cover for Eve is Dead from Eden Crane Design for the past month and finally decided to go for it. She emailed me today, and here is my perfect cover! I just love it so much!
So, don’t know if you know of the awesome YA author Julia Crane, but she just came out with a new book called Freak of Nature (although I’d read the first few chapters on Wattpad.com before she took them down. Anyway, she’s hosting a giveaway and it’s really awesome.
Now, for the second half of this post: Book Covers. Let’s take a moment here to appreciate and stare in awe at this awesome cover for Freak of Nature below that was made by Eden Crane (Julia Crane’s daughter).

DEADLINE: May 1st. Winners will be announced at the end of June after extensive review by myself and my fellow bloggers here at A Pocket Full of Pens.
UPDATE: Thanks to Natalie Truitt for asking in the Go Teen Writers FB group, I'm going to clarify something. Your novel DOESN'T have to be complete. Winners can send in whatever they have as long as it's within the designated word counts listed above. It can also be a novel you're writing for a challenge (either the Go Teen Writers' 100 for 100 or something like Camp NaNoWriMo).
Hope that answers any questions. If you have more, sound off in the comments or in the FB group or even the Teens Can Write, Too! FB group.
Alice King has been spiraling ever since her father’s death two years ago. Her mother has finally had enough and decides to send her to a correctional boarding school: The Damon Academy for the Gifted. Once there, Alice meets many other troubled teens; among them are Mina and the infamous acid-addict Hatter.
In this post, I talk about, that sometimes (despite good planning), you need to go back and rethink and rewrite your story, but that it’s okay. I’m currently doing it now with my novel, 7th Heaven. Read my guest post here.
Thanks to Figment.com, I found the wonderful SJ Bouquet, who runs the FigmentFiles blog.
I’m so EXCITED about this!
Thank you http://FigmentFiles.tumblr.com for such a nice review! I’ve never heard of Once A Witch/Always a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough until now, but I understand why it sounds similar. If I find any time in my crazy homework and writing schedule, I’ll try and read it. Grammar: I’m working on it. As to adding description, I have it on the top of my To Do list for this story. I died laughing at the GIF and “Mr. Kissalot.” Please head over to the link and see what they had to say. I think you’ll really like it.
UPDATE as of 3/15/13: SPRING BREAK is finally here and I’m released from the doldrums of writing 2 school papers simultaneously like I have been doing since Thanksgiving (and more specifically the past two weeks)… Actually that’s false. I still need to write 2 papers that are due on April 15, but Spring Break means that with 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, for 2 weeks gives me 80hrs to devote to paper writing, and more importantly: writing/editing 7th Heaven. Thanks to SJ Bouquet, I’ve been in the process of revising the first 5 chapters and am done with 1-4 (which I’m really satisfied with) and this time will let me get even more done on the story!
Also, my 16th birthday is on March 20, so I’m very excited and slightly nervous…but it’s gonna be awesome!

In this post, I talk about other non-fiction forms of writing I do when I can't work on my novels. Read my guest post on Other types of Writing here.

A gift from her grandmother before she lost her mind to dementia. She was always Madison “Hatter” Harley’s favorite relative, the only one who understood her strange fantasies. As a reminder of her now dead grandmother, Hatter always carries with her, either as a necklace or tucked away in a secret pocket of her goth outfits. She tends to store it either in her hat or her boot. She can often be caught glancing at it, but don’t ask her about it or she will curse you out before marching away.
I'm a self-published author— because being a college student wasn't hard enough! I write YA multi-genre fiction for young adults or the young at heart. I love This Is Us, NCIS, BBC's Sherlock,
