What Every Writer Needs to Know about Keeping a Personal Diary
I'd never thought much about diaries until I was well into researching my latest book: The Point Is: Making Sense of Birth, Death, and Everything in Between. The book's about how each of us, beginning a young age, begins collecting memories. And how, as if by magic, we build a story out of them-the story of our life, the narrative we carry in our heads. Just like a written story, it's got a beginning, a middle, and eventually an end. Some chapters are happy, others we'd delete if we could. There are any number of turning points along the way.

How to Use Surprise to Build Suspense

How to Write for Teens Without Sounding Like an Adult Writing for Teens 
Ask any agent and they'll tell you the trick to nailing young adult writing is in the voice. And even though I spend my workdays with teens, I heard it countless times when I was looking for representation for my failed first YA novel. So when I finally buried that novel for good and moved on to what became DON'T GET CAUGHT, I was determined to make sure the voice was right. It took more than eight drafts and constant revisions, but ultimately I signed with an agent who sold the book in a little over a month. The trick, I've found, is first to get yourself back to thinking like a teenager again, and once there, writing your novel as a teenager would. 

Here are 10 practical tips on how to do just that ...
