I'm not sure if you've noticed (hopefully you have!), but I've started a new meme called "Weekly Author Writing Prompt". That's pretty self-explanatory, don't you think?
In case I'm wrong, let me explain. Every week (though it hasn't really been weekly yet due to craziness) I will be hosting one of your favorite YA authors on the blog. They will be presenting you with a writing prompt to get your creative juices flowing. Its basically just a little activity to do or a snippet of something to read that will, hopefully, inspire you. You'll be able to comment on the post with your creation for everyone else and the author to see. Or you can just hoard your pretty words.
Anyway, the fun in this is to just get us all writing for a little while every week. Plus, you get inspiration from your favorite authors. I will also be hosting occasional giveaways and contests!
Below is a working list of the authors who have been featured. Please, please, please help spread the word about this on your blog/twitter/facebook and most importantly, participate!
