Characters, Voice, and Sweater-Vested Cats

I just got through reading the live event I missed last night.  I was teaching a class, but that is irrelevant.  I hate that I didn’t get to witness this as it occurred, but I gained motivation as well as knowledge from it that I would like to incorporate and, of course, share with you fine people.  Figment and ThisIsTeen brought together Maggie Stiefvater and Lucy Christopher for a fireside chat about “The Voices in [Their] Head[s]”.

The authors, both Printz Honored, speak on character development and voice specifically as well as answer questions from the audience. The link to the conversation is here.  I highly recommend it. I’m off, now, to reread and note things to remember from the transcript.  Thanks to all who put this together and the authors who participated.  These type of things mean a lot to me.  🙂

Oh, if you want to know about the sweater-vested cats, you have to read the interview!!  I know.  Evil, right?
