I've been gone from this blog for a few months now. Not that I haven't wanted to jot down some words of wisdom, but between working on my new book and catching that nasty bug going around, I've pretty much been away from this site.
While working on my new YA book, I've discovered an entire new language. Now the dictionary doesn't list most of the words and not everyone speaks the new (maybe old by the time the book is out) language. I have found it very interesting the way two or more words are shortened and then added to each other to form a new word. The new word has a meaning that is too great to not use. In fact, I have found myself using a few of them now and again.
In case there are readers out there that haven't been exposed to this new language, I will be adding a dictionary to the book.
