Does anyone else (besides yourself and your publishers and such) know the plot of your books before they are actually published?

You di realize that you inspired people with the Uglies series to do something they never dreamed of before.

That's really cool, actually. Good luck to all you folks going into enviro science. You're going to need it! (And the world is going to need you.)

It's hard to imagine a plot line with Zane as a Special now.

But sometimes it doesn't really seem like we're trying to "land" at all.

Um, no. I think we'll have to take some really hard hits before we get it. Like, $10/gallon gas or something.

I wish he hadn't died. Tally was so depressed after.

Yes, but I couldn't write about a war in which no one important died. Because there's NO SUCH THING.

I'm curious as to whether the research you did for Uglies was more on brain functions (for the lesions) or on behaviors (being pretty, cutting, anorexia).

More stuff about what people perceive as beauty, like the neotony or averaging hypothesis. I knew a lot of cutters from among my Midnighters fans, so I felt like I knew where they were coming from.
