Addition to the Author Survey

So a while back I asked several authors (via Readergirlz chats) the same question: What is your favorite part of the writing process?

Tonight, I caught Shannon Hale, author of many fabulous books including The Goose Girl, Princess Academy, and Austenland on the Readergirlz chat, and here's what she had to say.

Shannon Hale: Finding that perfect sentence. And meeting people who didn’t like to read until they read one of my books, and have gone on to read many books. I don’t feel like it was me who did either of those things, but they both rock.

By the way, Readergirlz is an online book club, run by a bunch of women who also happen to be authors of YA books. Every month they pick a book to read, and everybody discusses it on their MySpace forum. Then, they have a live chat with the author. Pretty cool if you ask me. www.readergirlz.com
