So Taylor had written this post over at Figment. My interest in the writing routines of authors, I lapped up the article, helpfully annotated with Instagrams of her notebook. - Daughter of Smoke and Bone is a fantasy novel written by Laini Taylor.
Taylor has taken elements of mythology, religion and her own imagination and pasted them into a believably fantastical collage. Starting with year-old Karou, who is far from a typical teenager, with hair that grows in a bright ultramarine, no rebellious dye required. They are real chimeras, demons, and they are the closest thing she has to family. When Karou sees a crow with bat wings, she knows it is summoning her for yet another trip to collect animal and human teeth. Why does she have hamsa tattoos on the palms of her hands? Why does she feel so desperately lost and lonely?
