Welcome to the 9th weekly I HEART YA Blog Carnival! I HEART YA is a Blog Carnival for readers, writers, and lovers of young adult fiction. Every Tuesday there will be a blogging prompt that celebrates my favorite reading genre --YA fiction. Bloggers are invited to write their own take on the topic and post a link in the comment section, or if you prefer just put your thoughts in the comments. Either way, if you own a blog, grab the button to show your pride, and add your link to the list below. If you're not sure what to do, go to the I HEART YA tab for more details.
Confession time: I love writing. Absolutely totally love it. But I'm not sure why. I sometimes get so caught up in my writing that I forget to get dressed, or eat, or even drink. A day spent writing can feel like minutes. At the same time, I know how weird that is. Some folks might even consider a day spent writing as torture. I do think that part of the appeal for me is some deep-seated control issue thing. I love that I get to literally create my characters and the space they inhabit. Discovering new places and concepts is also the appeal of reading. But when I get to not just discover, but create those things, life is good.
I'm currently working on the details of my very own made up planet. Which I have to say is awesome. A whole planet that only exists in my brain. (Maniacal laugh. Maniacal laugh.) (Did I mention I just went with the fam to see the newest Muppet movie? I totally recommend it. And that maniacal laugh thing might even be funny once you do.)
So what about you? If you're writer, here's your chance to tell us about the people or places that you've created. If you're not, put on your imagination cap and tell us what amazing world you would create if you had the chance.
And don't forget: 1. Add your link to the linkytool (Only once is necessary. Links will be removed after two months of not participating.) 2. Add your link to the comment section so we know you participated this week. 3. Grab the button if you haven't already. 4. Check out the other blog posts. Ready...set...go!
