Spy on Laini Taylor’s Notebook: Author Challenge Winners!

Where do writers get their ideas? It’s one of the most common questions we hear at Figment. For Laini Taylor, author of Daughter of Smoke and Bone and its sequel, Days of Blood and Starlight, her Prague-set tale of angels and monsters began with a series of “short, cryptic messages” that she jotted down in an “idea notebook.”

Laini dropped by Figment to talk about how writing in a notebook helps her flesh out her ideas. Inspired by Laini’s advice, we challenged you to try your hand at Laini’s writing exercise. You wrote about some pretty impressive ideas and we are now ready to announce the challenge winners!

Check out the winning entries and be sure to congratulate your fellow Figs!



Great job, guys! You will each receive a copy of Daughter of Smoke and Bone and Days of Blood and Starlight!
