California morning journaling time. ❤️❤️❤️
Processing all the meetings in LA, now finally visiting family, daydreaming, and doing a bit of plotting while drinking yummy coffee ☕️ How’s your morning/day??? What are you working on?

In LA with the super creative author Amaris Glass, eating the most amazing food, and talking the most fantastic stories.
Thanks for a great night, @toplofty_biped ! *pics taken at night, sorry not super clear! .

The bright, white screen and empty page of a brand new story that hasn’t been written yet. It’s just been stirring, growing, dancing, and flashing in your mind and now it gets to come out with beautifully spun words forming something whole. I love this moment. .

Who else loves it??

Chocolate milk done right. 🖤🖤🖤
Book Confession: If a book is not done right, I usually don’t finish it. 📚📚📚 What about you? Do you finish a book even if it’s hard to get thru????.

Believe it or not, I seriously need grass time. After living in a Chinese city for many years, my appreciation for soft grass in American backyards that you can sit on, play on, sleep on, (even edit on,) has grown to deep love. I look forward to these moments where no shoes or socks are necessary. Now back to edits!!! #appreciatewhatyouhave ...

I have to admit, Legendary was an even better read than Caraval! And I just heard that preorder for Finale is open or opening soon! I’m super inspired by how much @stephanie_garber works, prays, and slays her stories! It’s not easy to press in that extra mile to take your book from good to great. She’s a prime example of not giving up. ..

Lol!!! This was ME writing Jo for Calculated 😂😂😂— Jo is a math prodigy (I am far from) which meant lots & lots of math research, talks with math teachers, etc! People read Calculated and say, “Wow. You are sooooo smart.” And I’m like, dang, I must be a great writer cause...I don’t even understand how I just wrote that!! 😂😂 Research pays off!!!!! .

My last day writing in Soldotna, Alaska was a lot of fun. Met with two YA fantasy writers, @moosenaroundak & @kris.d.keith who are full of amazing stories and creativity— and we are all moms of young children! I hope both ladies will submit their novels to #pitchwars!!! Love having my people around the globe. See you next time I’m back!!!
