Yay it's spring! As a teen that meant brighter clothes, cuter shoes, school winding down, spring dances, and the hopes of a blossoming new love. Spring fever was a wonderful thing, full of possibilities.
And it still is!
When the sun comes out and the temp rises:
1. I am happier and
2. More optimistic, so
3. I think others are also happier and
4. In a good mood,
5. Like when they're reading my manuscript in sunny NYC,
6. So they'll be nice and ready to buy it!
When I can tear myself away from my email, I sit on my front porch with my laptop and write. I get some of my best writing done outside, with music playing and breezes wafting by.
Oh, who am I kidding. I'm checking my email on my porch, too.
Happy Spring, everyone! Celebrate the sun by commenting to this post for a chance to win ZIGZAG by Ellen Wittlinger. (Also link to this entry on your blog and I'll enter you twice.) This was one of the first books I read that made me decide for sure that I, too, was going to write YA novels. And it takes place over summer vaca on a cross-country car trip, so soak up its warm vibes! I LOVE road trip books!
