It happens. In order to get my thoughts together, I will brainstorm on my computer about all the major things that *I* would like to get across, while still allowing the characters to tell me what *they* would like to happen next.

If that fails, being around other creative people helps, a lot. As does slamming your head against the wall. ;)(less)

Kos has crafted a fascinating, darkly romantic tale double-dipped in spooky. Crave (Ladies of Death) has elements that are straight out of the horror genre, injecting a dark tone into this coming-of-age romance, with *just enough* gore to please fans ...more

“The moment she was cursed, I lost her. Once it wears off- soon- she will be embarrassed to remember things that she said, things she did, things like this. No matter how solid she feels in my arms, she is made of smoke.”
Holly Black, Red Glove

Victoria Dahl
“That werewolf fantasy would be a hard one to pull off. She'd have to troll through the forest in high heels, just praying one of the scruffy campers was actually a raving beast.”
Victoria Dahl, Start Me Up

Holly Black
“Girls like her, my grandfather once warned me, girls like her turn into women with eyes like bullet holes and mouths made of knives. They are always restless. They are always hungry. They are bad news. They will drink you down like a shot of whisky. Falling in love with them is like falling down a flight of stairs. What no one told me, with all those warnings, is that even after you’ve fallen, even after you know how painful it is, you’d still get in line to do it again.”
Holly Black, Black Heart

Holly Black
“But now I wonder--what if everyone is pretty much the same and it's just a thousand small choices that add up to the person you are? No good or evil, no black and white, no inner demons or angels whispering the right answers in our ears like it's some cosmic SAT test. Just us, hour by hour, minute by minute, day by day,making the best choices we can.
The thought is horrifying. If that's true, then there's no right choice. There's only choice.”
Holly Black, Black Heart

Holly Black
Mine. The language of love is like that, possessive. That should be the first warning that it's not going to encourage anyone's betterment.”
Holly Black, Black Heart
