The Bad Side of Good - Chapter 7

Hi Y'all. I realize some of you have not seen any of this story. In a nutshell, 15 year old Izzy has a little brother named Beau who just tested "Bad" in a mandatory test that all 9 year olds take to determine if they have a genetic predisposition to be a criminal. Izzy has been hiding his little brother (without their mom's knowledge) so that he won't be taken away to a reformation school. Izzy's cousin, Chatto, is a runaway from one of the worst reformation schools and has been looking out…See More

Hi Tracy -

Your hubster get back from his hunting trip? I've been reading a little about deer and duck hunting BTW. Fascinating if you never do it.

I'm really good. Elk head in the driveway, huh? Sort of like the movie The Godfather or Sarah Palin, or I guess that was moose. Finally sent a package to agent Erin Murphy a few weeks ago but of course haven't heard anything. How about you? Have you heard back from Julia Richardson?

oh dang! I wish I was going in Dec. I'm going to the one in March instead. I made the decision of sanity over insanity. Work is a always crazy that time of year. Two years ago I was sending stuff at midnight to work meet deadlines in the parking lot of the Big Sur River Inn surfing for wifi. It was mega-freezing. My fingers are still mad. Too bad re: Stephen Barbara. Tell me more again about Banish. I remember your writing but not details so much. Is it YA romance? Erin Murphy said she was looking for light YA romance and she's Irish - it might be up her alley. Just thinking out loud here.

I forgot to answer about sending to Julia. I haven't sent to her or anyone else. I pitched to Erin at a conference in Sept. so I had to send that. I'm not quite ready to go the whole hog, though just on the verge, like in a few months I'll be seriously ready to go. I've accumulated a good list of folks now to send to and I'm rewriting the whole thing again for like the fifth time. I have a draft of the second Jade Melville book and a 65 scene outline for a third called, "Creating a Monster". Jade writes a play about girl genius Mary Shelley who wrote Frankenstein. I'm chomping at the bit to get to both the second and the third but know A Fish Without a Bicycle needs the polish and a launch into the wide world first.

Hey Tracy! How was Big Sur in es Monterrey?

Your page is so lovely, Tracy. :-)

And, oh yeah, I came over here for a reason (duh). As soon as I finish this book I'm working on, I'd love to chat about branching out of YA. I've been all over the place forever, and I kind of love it. It was great meeting you, too.

Hmmmm, sterile hotel environment...hmm my hubster and daughter were thinking of coming to the March YA conference. Maybe they won't want to--- though there is much bird life to be had in the estuaries. Great that you loved the conference!

Rewriting this is the most fun I've ever had. Ellen said something about accepting our limitations as we get older. A few weeks ago I decided good comma placement is offically beyond my abilities in this lifetime and it opened some kind of creative door for me.

If you want to be funny you can be. Woody Allen pretended he was Bob Hope for years when he would do his stand-up comedy routines. Don't try to be original, just copy your fav comedian and it comes out you--it's a miracle but it works. And you ARE funny (or Talon is) It's subtle. It's dry. It's wry. It's there. Just do more of it.

Oh, okay. Yeah, Lily is a water dog. Is it an indoor pool?

More unasked for funny advice... Lately I'm working on making myself less funny. Well, not exactly...what I need to be careful of with my humor is unwittingly canceling the darker feelings of my character's story. I'm now figuring out how to keep the emo-storyline to make Jade more vulnerable and humane, let people into her heart.
