Quote of the week from one of my Resources for young Adults instructors regarding Stephanie Meyer:
"Writing is not an iterative process for Stephanie Meyer. She goes 'badda badda badda' DONE!"
You had to see the rapid fire air-typing motions he made while he said it. He became my hero in that instant.
Another quote, this one from the professor:
"It's a phenomonon, there's no doubt about that. It's just that she's not really that good of a writer. And I think she gets worse as she goes. It's like her editor just gave up."
