What is your writing style? How is it different from other writers?
Okay, so, I need to be careful answering this in a way that describes my style but isn’t self-deprecating. I’d also like to avoid using my critical eye to poison readers against my style. Y’know… Like this.
Today I received permission to post the fan art! This was made by Shelly over at https://twitter.com/shellzfairy. She’s a great artist if you’d like to check her out. She made sketches of Cassius and Emmy (if she wore more ornate clothing) from Dragon Winged, Wingless, and Moth Winged.
For those of you who don’t know, I am Colleen Houser, author of the Wingéd series, and this is the second time that I’m reviving this blog. And I know what you’re thinking. “If this is the third time that you’re trying to keep up with a blog, you’re obviously unreliable. Why should I bother following someone who is just going to abandon me?” And those are healthy things to think, but I have answers. 1) Because I’m awesome. I really think that trumps any other argument you have, but 2) the format is going to be different.
So, the first thing you’ll learn about me is that I hate journalism…
A while ago, I posted soundtracks for Wingéd, Foiche Dé, and Dragon Wingéd. So, here are the songs that I listened to while writing Wingless. Some of them I did add later on, because they seemed to fit. If a certain song reminds me of a character, I put the name in parentheses next to it. Enjoy!
