I just finished flying through Kristin Cashore’s fabulous teen fantasy books Graceling and Fire. I am sad to be done with them. It’s always a sign I like a book when halfway through I start dreading the reality that they will not last much longer.

Writing Process

As I harbor my own desires of writing fantasy fiction, I searched online for information on Cashore, specifically a biography to understand her pilgrimage as a writer. I was delighted to find her blog that shares her life, book reviews, her writing process, and tips on learning the craft and getting published.

ELA instructors are forever teaching “The Writing Process.” I think it is also wonderful to study the processes successful writers claim to use.
