Justine Musk writes Young Adult Urban Fantasy (not sure if there’s an acronym for that – YAUF?) and her blog is spicy and meaty at the same time.
“You have an inner source code – a soulcode — that holds the secret to where you belong in the world.” Justine Musk, “your passion quest”.

Do any of you other writers out there have this problem? I’ve had to give up gigs in which I had to critique other writers’ work – including one of my faves, writing movie reviews for Festival of Films. I fudged it well enough with this post about Les Miserables and this one reviewing Cloud Atlas, but I just couldn’t bring myself to tear down another writer’s work.
Is there such a thing as “constructive criticism” – one writer to another?

This dress of flesh, vested with my essence
comprised of skin, synapse, and sinew,
isn’t meant to be some random receptacle
of ennui, contempt, regret.
We are not the sum total of what life has thrown at us.
We are more than all the pain of the past.
Once you let go, you’ll be amazed: life can regenerate.
We can stand at the Intersection of Everything.
At the Nexus of Nebulas.
We can stare into the sun and see the vast expanse before us
or we can look back at the dark matter and say it cannot be.
So what do you lose if you try one more time?
Walk with me, wherever you are. You’ll never pass this way again.
