I’m alive. My hands are tired. I know how the book is going to end (kind of) and I’m bustin’ myself to get there.

Meg Cabot talks about her childhood brush with plagiarism. I think that must be a rite of passage for most kids. You know, having that one friend who stabs you in the back and does it with a smile. And boy, you learn fast—or you don’t learn at all.
This is also funny—Meg Cabot’s Book Signing Do’s and Don’ts for Writers:
Often when I go on a book tour I hear from booksellers about authors who were in their store the night before, who are also on a book tour, and who signed so many books that they had to ice their hand. Very often, these poor, tender things needed to have a bookseller stand next to them to flip the books open for them, because their little author fingers are too precious and weak to do this task themselves. Authors, seriously: Unless you are physically challenged, Harper Lee, JD Salinger, Beverly Clearly, or some other beloved but aged author, YOU MUST STOP DOING THIS. It just confirms what the rest of the world already thinks about us: that we are a bunch of badly groomed little namby pamby prima donnas with spirit guides who think our characters are real.
