12 Blogs of Christmas: Terrible Minds
The last 3 blogs of the 12 Blogs of Christmas – though certainly not the least – are brought to you by Robin. Robin joined us earlier this year to add a school librarian perspective to TLT. Plus, we like her.
Blog #10: Terrible Minds
Chuck Wendig is the author of numerous adult novels and books on writing. He recently released Under the Empyrean Sky – the first in a planned YA trilogy – which got a very positive review in School Library Journal. He first came to my notice as someone frequently tweeted by Maureen Johnson, but I’ve since started following him on Twitter myself. His humorous anecdotes about his toddler aside, Chuck has a well reasoned opinion on almost everything related to the world of publishing, writing, pop culture, etc. If you want to stay informed, this is a wonderful place to start. If you’re not put off by profanity. Lots of profanity. I suggest you start here, with his essay “25 Things You Should Know About Young Adult Fiction.”
