your online stories?
January 1, 1970Hi everyone! My new novel, formerly Tweaked, now Girl Broken, is going out to some fab publishers this week. It's really evolved into something special -- still deals with crystal meth abuse and violence against teens, but a larger theme has emerged, about what makes a young girl feel "broken", what "breaks" her, and the many ways (some good, some bad) she tries at putting herself back together.
for my next book, I'd like my characters to go online more, just in the course of their day, of living. I go online for email, a few listservs I belong to, and research primarily. Oh, and shopping...
I'd really like to get a feel for what other people, especially those between 15 and 25 years old, do online. also, how often do you go online, what times of day, what kind of computer do you use, do you have your own website or homepage? Whatever. so if you have a few moments to send me an email @ email@example.com, I'd love that -- no rush. You can tell me what your friends like to do online too, whatever. I'm not using anything you write specifically, just getting a feel.
