If a Book Falls in the Forest...Lessons from The Book Thief.
With all the hugger-muggering about perfecting queries, and writing synopses (which I'm in the process of doing today), and following agents on Twitter, and stalking editors on Facebook, I have to say I find listening to Zusak talk about his passion for writing "somebody's favorite book" incredibly satisfying. I don't think I could get more spiritual uplift from meeting the Dalai Lama himself.
New friends and readers and fellow bloggers, Paradoxy is going dark until next Monday; I'm off to New York (without my computer) to see some art and eat my way across Manhattan and Brooklyn. Thanks for all the lurve, and I'll be visiting your sites when I get home next week. In the meantime, may Zusak's "ray of light" shine down upon you all.
