Now that I think about it, when I am writing a novel in the first person point of view I tend to only have the main character talk to one person at a time. Even if they are in a situation where multiple characters are involved, I make sure the character talks directly to the characters one at a time. I avoid having any of the other characters talk to one another in a scene without the main character, because then the first person POV would be lost. The thing to remember is that if you have a main character who is voicing the POV in your story, make sure that you don't write scenes where the main character wouldn't physically be able to witness what is going on. For example, after writing dialogue don't say ..." she said, lying through her teeth." if the POV of the character you are writing from doesn't know that the other person is lying. Only write what your main character knows or witnesses and make sure that you don't lose your POV by having other characters talk without the main character involved.(less)

However, when I do use subplots I make sure that they are all properly outlined before I begin writing the novel. I think that subplots add zest to a novel and will make sure there aren't any dull moments in a novel. However, I try to stick to three plots, including subplots, tops. Otherwise I think that they will begin to confuse the reader. If you are going to use subplots, make sure that you have them all planned out and ready to go beforehand; and most of all, don't forget to solve each plot. Never leave one hanging. This will only make your story amateur. (less)

As an eating disorder survivor, I found this book to be extremely triggering. While I understand that it is a memoir, it was too specific and basically came off as a manual for how to be anorexic. The language was also incredibly fatphobic and t

Stephen Chbosky
“I think that if I ever have kids, and they are upset, I won't tell them that people are starving in China or anything like that because it wouldn't change the fact that they were upset. And even if somebody else has it much worse, that doesn't really change the fact that you have what you have.”
Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Rainbow Rowell
“I feel sorry for you, and I'm going to be your friend."
"I don't want to be your friend," Cath said as sternly as she could. "I like that we're not friends."
"Me, too. I'm sorry you ruined it by being so pathetic.”
Rainbow Rowell, Fangirl

Rainbow Rowell
“That moment," she told Cath, "when you realize that a guy's looking at you differently—that you're taking up more space in his field of vision. That moment when you know he can't see past you anymore.”
Rainbow Rowell, Fangirl

Rainbow Rowell
“Reagan wore eyeliner all the way around her eyes. Like a hard-ass Kate Middleton. And even though she was bigger than most girls-big hips, big chest, wide shoulders-she carried herself like she was exactly the same size everyone wanted to be. And everyone went along with it.”
Rainbow Rowell, Fangirl

Stephen Chbosky
“So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.”
