Note to Self (from Melina Marchetta)

Words of wisdom from Melina Marchetta, goddess of everything. Swedish blogger Malin at Nilmas Bokhylla did a short but interesting and insightful Q&A with Melina back in 2012 – it's totally underappreciated so y'all should check it out. Great perspective on developing characters and writing your first draft.

Taylor's love interest was not always going to be a Jonah Griggs type, but somehow this very damaged young man started hanging around in my head. Usually what happens with me is that one character comes first, and that character begins to collect people. They don't all come at once.
