i’m going to be drafting like mad for the next little while. in the meantime, i’m over at the lucky 13s today blogging about this week’s topic: series vs standalones. come say hi!
some writing music for the day: david guetta feat. sia’s titanium.
the lyrics are cool, the video’s cool. the theme is very much like the one in m83’s midnight city: very anti-establishment, kids with special powers, fear of what’s different. it also brings to mind an old classic (i loved this book as a kid), the girl with the silver eyes by willo davis roberts. this somewhat echoes what we’ve been seeing the last couple of years in YA lit “trends” (which will eventually cycle back), if you follow an arc of paranormal to zombies to dystopia and now sci-fi starting to happen again.
