That's The Thing.

Noise is Noise. It's crash and clatter and it usually adds up to one big mash of sound and thought and picture and half the time it's impossible to make any sense of it at all. It's what's true and what's imagined and what's fantasized and it says one thing and a completely opposite thing at the same time and even tho the truth is definitely in there, how can you tell what's true and what's not when yer getting everything?

Bit like Tumblr, really.
I'm Laura.
Welcome to my Noise.

Just as the sun was r-i-i-sing
    I heard a maiden singing in the valley below...

"Oh, no," I hear Viola whisper.
“She ain’t my girl,” I say, low.
“What?” Doctor Snow says.
“What?” Viola says.
“She’s her own girl,” I say. “She don’t belong to anyone.”
And does Viola ever look at me.

The movie of A Monster Calls has started shooting!  Here’s a pic from the script readthrough of me and Liam Neeson and Sigourney Weaver and the FANTASTIC Lewis MacDougall as our Conor. I’m basically hyperventilating.

"Ah, well, then you’ve never stood on a beach as the waves came crashing in, the water stretching out from you until it’s beyond sight, moving and blue and alive and so much bigger than even the black beyond seems because the ocean hides what it contains…to see the ocean once is to learn how to miss it”- Mistress Coyle, The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness

All the art in the Chaos Walking fandom is incredible so I thought it would be a nice to have a way to celebrate all the amazing art.

Therefore I’m introducing Fanart Friday!

Every Friday morning I will post a prompt; it will be something general such as love, death, family etc. Artists will have until Thursday night to draw something, a sketch or full work if they have time, then post it with a certain tag and I will judge the winner for that week. The prize will include a spot on this blog and maybe more.

I will judge the art on the creativity as well as the quality so even if you don’t think you’re the best artist but would like to take part please don’t be shy you still have a really good chance of winning.

This will only be able to happen if I get enough positive responses so, if you think there’s a chance you’d enter, please like and reblog this post to let other people know about it.

Thanks guys carry on making brilliant art!

+ If this is successful I may introduce a gif/graphic challenge as well - let me know if you’re interested

More Than This by Patrick Ness “I wanted so badly for there to be more. I ached for there to be more than my crappy little life.’ He shakes his head. ‘And there was more. I just couldn’t see it.”

This is really quite cool.

This is really quite cool.

Chaos Walking and A Monster Calls are two completely different books. Massive versus tiny. Science Fiction versus fantasy. Different characters, different concerns… And yet, looking back, I can see now that – though they tell very different stories – they’re both about how to survive after the worst thing happens.

Then my next two books for teens, More Than This and The Rest of Us Just Live Here, I realised at the end – though again, very different – they’re both about living without knowing, as is The Crane Wife. I didn’t plan it, I just wanted to tell those stories and was clearly responding to them for a reason.
