A self-declared bibliophile, Danika now writes novels for both teens (All the Feels and Internet Famous) adults (Edge of Wild and The Dark Divide).

It's horrible, and painful (and most of what I write during moments like that is utter garbage) but even garbage can be recycled. I just need to go long enough to unblock the flow.(less)

In my case, I always figure that your first draft is really for yourself, and I often think of it as my 'real' version of the story. Once I plan on publishing it, however, I recognize that other readers need other things from the novel I've written. (And in some cases, other endings!) I've been incredibly lucky to have a team of editors I can trust, so I've had a good experience with that. Yes, I needed to reduce what I'd written - for length, for genre, for story arcs. No, the resulting draft wasn't the story I originally intended to tell, but it was the one that needed to be told for that particular audience. Publishing is a collaborative process, and in the end, it's the sharing that matters. (less)

My best advice is: Finished is better than perfect. You NEED to learn the truth in this before you'll make it to the end of a book / substantive edits / copyedits / etc.

This is a dark and twisty novel that gets under your skin. It starts off so innocently that, like Joe, the darkness of the unfolding chaos sneaks up on you. I didn't find any of the horror in it to be overtly gruesome, but has some truly skin-crawlin ...more

“Alright. I'm over on the dark side. You'd better have the cookies I've been promised.”
Danika Stone, All the Feels

“Sometimes,” she whispered, her lips brushing his cheek, “you need to be lost in order to be found.”
Danika Stone, Edge of Wild

“This was another thing Vale’s mother never understood: Vale was aro-ace, both aromantic and asexual. She’d told her parents she just wasn’t interested in dating any number of times… But they never seemed to get it. To them, Vale’s sexuality was a ‘phase’ that they were certain she would one day outgrow. Their obliviousness was a raw spot for Vale.”
Danika Stone, Switchback

“The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire.”
Ferdinand Foch

“I feel as though, if I were to extend my hand just a little toward the pool where the ideas ferment, I could grab at the idea and pull it out of the pool and onto the floor where ideas must stand before the jury of the brain. There, it must present itself, still from the pool, and a bit shivery because new ideas are not given a towel to dry off with, towels being reserved for proven theories; new ideas are simply pulled and stood up, and asked to explain themselves - not a very pleasant thing really, which is why so many people go into the room where the pool is. The exercise is exhausting not to mention a bit difficult to watch, if you are at all a sympathetic creature. What was my idea, anyways?”
Emilie Autumn, The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls

“The veneer of civilization fell away to reveal desperate animals, humanity at their worst.”
Travis Luedke, The Nightlife: Paris

“Trapped on a school bus for an hour each morning and each evening, she devoured book after book. She explored a hundred worlds, indifferent to her peers and the passing of the universe.”
Danika Stone, Edge of Wild

“What's the point?” her father muttered brokenly the day of the funeral. In the last months his shoulders had curled like an autumn leaf.
“The point is that we're not alive unless we also die,” Louise said.”
