    One of the books I took to read while I was at jury duty earlier this week was Tithe by Holly Black. Luckily for me, the book was excellent. Not so luckily, I finished it in the first few hours I was waiting. But, that left me a lot of time to sketch out these two in my notebook, and so here is my interpretation of Rath Roiben Rye and Kaye Fierch. Definitely going to be checking out the rest of the series. *nodnod*

    They’re SO GREAT. Roiben is kind of adorable here.

    A classic novel isn’t good because it’s a classic, rather it is a classic because it was important to the development of the art. And that certainly doesn’t mean that any given person, on any given day, will enjoy reading it. It means that, as a writer, I should be aware of what the classic novel changed in the historical progression of novel story telling. Some classics are pretty terrible, even unreadable, but they are still important.

  • "The notion that people should write what they know is very limiting. Imagination is one of the most powerful tools we have. I use research to guide my imagination, and then I try to find people who can tell me where I’ve imagined wrong. This applies to all of writing, and it’s really no different for writing a diverse character. People fail at this when they abandon research, imagination, and expert assistance for tropes, stereotypes, and ‘what everybody knows’ …"
