@karianneholt I used to find that I couldn’t even go to sleep w/o that sort of music. Or study. As ADD person, it narrows focus #litchat by kashicat at Fri, 28 Aug 2009 21:02:14 +0000 (msg id: 3611265508)

@booksoulmates Read a lot, esp in the genre you hope to write. Learn to revise well — revision is re-vision not fiddling w/ words. #litchat by rj_anderson at Fri, 28 Aug 2009 21:09:20 +0000 (msg id: 3611401574)

@GALaursen I think it does because older teens / adults often turned off fantasy by disdain of peers, kids don’t have that problem. #litchat by rj_anderson at Fri, 28 Aug 2009 21:11:21 +0000 (msg id: 3611435597)
