Currently working on: still working on that YA paranormal
Mood: Exhausted. Who knew how many boxes it really takes to pack up a house?
I’ve been around for a while and the one thing I know for sure about fiction trends is that once anyone can identify a trend, it is already saturated, overbought, and about to end. So, I don’t try to catch the trend or write to a trend. I think it’s most important that you write what you love, write what calls to you, and then write again. It all comes around. If this isn’t your trend year, just wait–like the weather–it will change again soon.
As this is posted I will be following a moving van to my new home in the California Redwoods. Believe me this part of California is not a trend setter. Instead they’ve been quietly waiting for everyone to catch up to small town living, ecological awareness, and green living. So, my final word is don’t waste time looking for the trend. Just make your own. Everyone will eventually catch up.
Back to my favorite fashion faux pas. It goes to show that even those who may be considered “trendy” get it wrong.
Finally, Anna Wintour–the editor of Vogue–really should know better. Do you think that giant seashells on your hips is doing you any favors. Even if you are a skinny minnie.
Good thing I can’t afford designer clothes. I’m sure I couldn’t begin to compete with these outfits. Hmmm…I am planning to be at RWA in Nashville in 2010. I always did like Minnie Pearl’s look. Maybe I’ll come up with an out-of-the-box dress for the next Rita ceremony.
