Writers on Writing: 3 Books for Word Lovers

As a writer, odds are you credit your literary prowess to a voracious habit of reading. This is also true for published authors. They understand as well as we do that it is only through reading great work and mimicking the flow of it that we develop the writing

Weekend Reads: This Savage Song

I want to start this off by saying that I loved, loved, LOVED This Savage Song. Victoria Schwab (otherwise known as V.E. Schwab) has created a terrifying, blood-soaked story and it is beautiful from the first page to the last. Verity is a city at

Weekend Reads: Neil Gaiman

Sometimes you need a book (or two) to get you to the weekend. The Sleeper and the Spindle and How to Talk to Girls at Parties are those books. Ok, so maybe I’m a little biased because of how much I love Neil Gaiman. I’ve admired him

This Just In: Kirsten Dunst to Direct The Bell Jar

*Screams* Hi, hello. Welcome to the “Woah, this came out of nowhere” news section. Currently, I am supposed to be working on something else. But I was savagely catapulted out of concentration when I discovered that (okay, I was browsing the Internet) Kirsten Dunst is

Happy 36th Birthday, Harry Potter!
