As a child, Amanda G. Stevens disparaged Mary Poppins and Stuart Little because they could never happen. Now, she writes speculative fiction. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in English and has taught literature and composition to home-school students. She lives in Michigan and loves books, film, music, and white cheddar popcorn. Her debut, Seek and Hide, was a 2015 INSPY Award finalist.

Let myself free-write about why I hate this scene and it's never going to work ;) then list the things the characters won't do and why, rail at them as needed ... usually in a page or two I've discovered what they WILL do next. Another tactic I use a lot: I write in third person/past tense, but when I'm stuck, I switch to first person/present tense. It obliterates barriers between me and the character, puts me even deeper into deep POV.(less)

Amanda G. Stevens is on page 38 of 163 of The Panic Broadcast: This is so fascinating--how the radio play was produced, the cultural commentary of the panic, the reaction of the public the next day... When I finish this I'm going to search on YouTube to see if someone has made the broadcast available.

Flannery O'Connor
“The truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it.”
Flannery O'Connor

David Quammen
“Of course anyone who truly loves books buys more of them than he or she can hope to read in one fleeting lifetime. A good book, resting unopened in its slot on a shelf, full of majestic potentiality, is the most comforting sort of intellectual wallpaper.”
David Quammen, The Boilerplate Rhino: Nature in the Eye of the Beholder

James     Baldwin
“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, who had ever been alive.”
James Baldwin

Paul Simon
“It's actually very difficult to make something both simple and good.”
Paul Simon

C.S. Lewis
“I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
