beautiful creatures

On WritingBack in February, there was an amazing article on io9 about the authors of The Beautiful Creatures, Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. The book, now a feature film, was written because one of their daughters dared them to write a good YA fantasy that was told from the guy’s point of view and didn’t include vampires. They rose to the challenge, writing a story for a small group of teenagers without any ambition of getting it published.

It’s a good article. While it focuses primarily on the rules for writing believable fantasy, there’s a lot in it about the writing process, too. I highly recommend reading it:
