Talk Amongst Yourselves

Ever have one of those weeks where all the troubles of the world come crashing down on you? And your kids need you, and your house looks like a slob pit, and you haven’t updated your blog in a week, and you don’t even care, because you MUST FINISH WRITING YOUR NOVEL?

So, that’s where I’m at. I’m going to stay away from the blog until the end of the week to give myself time and permission to make a fairly major change in my Work-in-Progress, and to polish and send off some Secret Contracted Work.

But I won’t leave you with nothing to do! So, courtesy of YA Highway, here’s the Stick Man game. Do it. It’s really fun!!

And I have a bit of good news I can share. I have an essay coming out in a Chicken Soup for the Soul anthology in November! *confetti*

I’ll be back next weekend, after the amazing Austin Teen Book Festival. Seriously, check out the line-up on this one. Scott Westerfeld, Maureen Johnson, Tera Lynn Childs, and all the local YA literati! Wowza — I’m taking my niece, her friend, my son, and however many other teens I can fit in the minivan.

And we’re all going to go paparazzi on these amazing authors. There will be pictures, promise.

Take care, and write well!
