"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


YALLFest Interview with Rainbow Rowell

Hey everyone!  Here's another exciting YALLFest interview to share with you! 

If you didn't know (and you really should because it is an awesome event) YALLFest is a great YA Author Festival held in Charleston, South Carolina hosted by Blue Bicycle Books. Still a baby, with 2013 being it's third year, YALLFest brings some of the BIGGEST names in YA books together for one day of ridiculous amazing fun.  To get people excited, they have picked bloggers across the internet to host interviews with the authors attending the festival.  I am one such lucky blogger!  

Check out the rockstar author that will be gracing us with her presence at the festival down below and keep checking back as the countdown to YALLFest keeps going! And you can always follow ALL the updates by checking out their twitter: @YALLFest

The Interview

What one thing do you need to have when you write?
Lip balm.

Describe your book in 5 words.
FANGIRL: Earnest, snowy, swoony, minty, bookish.

What is the hardest line to write- the first or the last?
THE FIRST!  The whole first page is a nightmare.  I want people to just skip it.  And I always end up rewriting it.

Best writing tip you ever received?
“Just finish your book.”

What one young adult novel do you wish you had when you were a teen? Why?
Homecoming by Cynthia Voigt. I think it would have made me feel less alone.

Where's your favorite place to write?
 At coffeeshops. In giant overstuffed chairs.

What are you working on now?
I’m revising my adult novel, Landline, which comes out in spring 2014, and playing with a romantic/political/tragicomic fantasy.

What is your favorite genre to write in? To Read?
I write mostly contemporary. I read mostly fantasy.

At what point in the development of an idea do you know that it will become a full-length novel?
All of my ideas are full-length novels. I have a hard time narrowing my scope.

The Books

Meet Rainbow Rowell
Rainbow Rowell writes books. 
Sometimes she writes about adults (Attachments and Landline). 
Sometimes she writes about teenagers (Eleanor & Park and Fangirl). 
But she always writes about people who talk a lot. And people who feel like they’re screwing up. And people who fall in love. 
When she’s not writing, Rainbow is reading comic books, planning Disney World trips and arguing about things that don’t really matter in the big scheme of things. 
She lives in Nebraska with her husband and two sons.
