Hello there, good lookin'!

I've missed you. And by 'you' I'm not only referring to this blog where I used to pour my heart out but also to you, lovely readers, whose conversation I have dearly missed. School has been out for a few weeks now, but I haven't been able to get on here or Twitter because, frankly, it's a huge task keeping up with blog feeds and Twitter streams. I don't have time for it like I use to, but I'm going to try to at least be a presence here again. I really have missed you all.

I hope all of your writing has been going well and that many of you are landing agents and making book deals. The Universe knows you all deserve it! I've been away from writing for a little while now, trying to focus on school and such, but I think it's time to jump back in and rip TSA to pieces (again) and finish the first draft of my ghostly twins novel. On an academic note, I'll be starting work on my Master's Thesis this summer; I'm super excited because I'll be writing about YA literature, specifically Matched, The Hunger Games, and Divergent. It's all about love in YA dystopias and the difference between older/adult dystopias and YA dystopias. So I've been writing, just for a different audience, haha.

Well, I'm currently at work and must get back to it, but I hope you're all having a fabulous summer. And please, do tell me how you are. :)

Hello! I hope being a grad student is treating you well. And your thesis sounds really interesting. My school assignments were never that cool!

Welcome back! Master's Thesis? Wow, no pressure.
I'm working on my third book and enjoying some unexpected success with the first two.

Jade, It's because my assignments are cool that I keep coming back to school, haha. I'm an English nerd and it shows, but I get to write and talk about the things that I love, so I might as well make a career out of it to support my writing! :)

Alex, I actually had to fight to get approved to write it. My department never lets MA students write theses, haha, just goes to show how nerdy I am! And CONGRATULATIONS!! So happy you're doing well. :D

I think we all have to take breaks from blogging on occasion. It's big deal to work on a Thesis.
Thanks for your kind words at Alex's blog. I'm a new follower.
