Characters on the autism spectrum
Since April is Autism Awareness Month, I was able to contribute a guest post to YA Highway about autistic characters in teen literature. You can access it here: Characters on the Autism Spectrum. Feel free to comment there instead of on today's post if you wish.
M is for the mundane...
I joked with my critique group that during the writing of Pandemic, I went out for a run and came back with a baby. During my jog, I started to think about my main character, Lil, as I listened to neighborhood noises. As an infant cried from a nearby home, a new character was born, someone who would further complicate Lil's attempts to survive the deadly outbreak.
So step away from the computer and get your everyday chores done. You can cross some items off your to-do list and you might even become creatively inspired.
