Comments: Talk To Cyn!

Dear Cynsational Readers,

As you may have noticed, I’ve turned on comments both for Cynsational and SpookyCyn.

So, don’t be a blurker (blog + lurker). Let me hear what you have to say.

According to my profile, I’ve written about 40,000 words, which is arguably novel-length.

Here’s a sampling of some of my favorite past posts, in case you may have missed one: Jingle Dancer, Cinderella, Multicultural Humor, Seriously, The Thin & The Fat of It, Author’s Life, Not Writing?, Rituals, First Reading, El Chino and Son of the Mob, The Order of the Poison Oak, Indian Shoes, Rain Is Not My Indian Name, Bibliotherapy and Star Wars, The Truth About Sparrows, My (Mostly) Non-Writing Life, Sock Monkey Goes To Hollywood, Unexpected Development, National Book Finalists Announced (featuring an interview with Julie Anne Peters on Luna), Children’s Illustrator in “Desperate Housewives,” In Memory of Francess Lantz (featuring author interview), Effective Aspects, Picture Book Market, Why I Write, Prom by Laurie Halse Anderson, Critique: Giving & Receiving, Novel Critique and Revision Questions, Profile on Cynthia and Greg Leitich Smith, An Interview With Cynthia Leitich Smith, Storky: How I Lost My Nickname and Won The Girl, Wanna Win The Newbery?, Cynsational Books of 2004, Sammy & Juliana in Hollywood, Vivian Vande Velde on Companions of the Night and Being Dead, Promotional Postcards, Period Pieces: Stories for Girls, Out of Order, Anne Bustard on Buddy: The Story of Buddy Holly, See You Down The Road, Last Dance on Holladay Street, Maya Running, Tribal Thoughts, Interview with Elisa Carbone, Moccasin Thunder, Writing, Fear, and Gender, Comfort, In My Grandmother’s House, Writing for YAs v.

  1. Cyn,

    So glad you turned on your comments! Yay!! Now we can get our cynsational daily fix and let you know how much we appreciate your keeping us updated on the real news. Better than CNN up in here. One of your post, the Anne Bustard interview led me to Curt Cyrus, who urged me to submit one of my blog post to the newspaper, who is now planning to publish my little blurb as a story. Wow, all that born out of Cynsations!
