Stephanie Meyer Never Met an Adverb She Didn't Like

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."

  1. I think people are too quick to blame the writer here. Where was the editor in all this? At a Thesaurus convention?

    But I must admit, if it weren't for Stephenie Meyer, I would never even have known of the possibility that something could slosh wetly.
