This Week in the Writing World...April 8

by Brooke Favero

G is for Government Shutdown. The government is at a budget stalemate, tax day is pushed back, and GalleyCat complied a library of books on gov't shutdown. How will we get through it: write, read, and create a new dystopia.

Dystopia is hot. I love reading it. Are you writing one right now?

I am writing a dystopia right now--editing. I hope to be querying it in a few months!

I'm not reading dystopia right now, but my son had to choose one for a middle school project. I have to admit, I'm pleased that he went old school with Fahrenheit 451.

I'm actually thinking about finishing a dystopian novel I started writing about thirty years ago. I have a lot of favorites, but Fahrenheit 451, Brave New World, and 1984 are favorites that I reread from time to time.
