Writing in American English is changing me. I got called out, by an English friend, for starting to sound American. I am, gleefully, awaiting the day, I can pull of y’all.
Not much else happening here. I’ve been enjoying the sunshine (hello spring!), and catching up on my blogs. So I have some great links to share. Here we go:
Daisy Whitney on 1000 True Fans. This is such an interesting post. Are you a true fan of anyone? I’m a fan of many authors, but a true fan of just a few; Elizabeth Scott, Melina Marchetta, Diana Peterfreund, E.Lockhart, Robin Benway and Joelle Anthony. I have a feeling, if Daisy’s book is half as awesome as her blog, I’ll be adding her to the list.
Melina Marchetta on Personal Taste guesting on, Justine Larbalestier’s blog, because, well I’m a true fan. I’d read anything by her and this is really interesting.
Pam Barchorz on her inspiration wall. I love seeing how writers work.
Shannon Hale on the lack of lead girls in childrens movies. This is a great post, give us more girls Hollywood!
Finally, Angie of AngieVille on reading Peter Pan with her son. I love this post, there are so many books, I can’t wait to share, with my son.
Have a lovely weekend, writing, reading or doing whatever it is you love!
Oh and remember to enter, to win, Hex Hall. It could make your weekend

stole borrowed, this blog title, from Joelle Anthony. It’s going to be a phenomenon, maybe even, leg – wait for it – endary!
