Exclamation Points

Exclamation Points

1) I am getting over my deathless cold!

2) You can hang laundry now! The weather! Woo! I bought blue morning glory seeds!

3) George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire is the juiciest series and I have over two more books to gobble up!

3) John Corey Whaley’s going to be at the Loft’s Teen Novelist Conference in October!

4) In 23 days, I go to Red Wing and just write and be alone and get fed meals and be arty and what not for FIFTEEN DAYS!

5) Veronica Roth’s Insurgent, sitting on my desk!

6) Cassandra Clare’s City of Lost Souls, finally released!

7) My roman shades just got delivered! Goodbye, Fussy Bedroom Drapes of Yesteryear!

8) Almost done teaching middle school creative writing for PHS this year! Probably the kids are more excited than me!

9) I got a lead on a like-new sewing machine!

10) On Friday I’m going to see The Avengers! Then Saturday, to my parents’ house for Mother’s Day, where we’ll watch Super 8 videos of old home movies my dad took when my sister and I were little! Then Mother’s Day, when I’m feted and spoiled!


(Okay, that’s enough positivity. Back later with my usual gloomy-bitchy fare.)

    Don’t feel bad – you’ve been in school! A quick primer:

    George R.R. Martin is the man behind the Game of Thrones books (officially titled A Song of Ice and Fire).

    John Corey Whaley won the Printz Award for his book Where Things Come Back this year.

    Insurgent is book #2 in a YA dystopia series.

    City of Lost Souls is book #5 in a YA fantasy series.

    So, aside from John Corey Whaley, whose book is realistic, I live in a YA Fantasy world.

    I love this! But I feel ashamed that I’m not familiar with those writers!

    Yay for exclamation points!
    I turned in the grades for my course today and the pressure is finally off, the only remaining jobs the ones I actually love!
    Excited for you about the writing residency!
