The biggest Miscellany this Monday is that I’m leaving for Amsterdam this afternoon, and this will be my only post for a couple of weeks–unless something spectacular happens in Amsterdam and I can’t wait to tell you. I’ll be back to my regular Monday-Thursday posts by the 27th. Enshala.
But there’s more. I have to keep up with my ROW80 writers who are truly spectacular. Please join the effort or go over the Linky and find those hard working people. Give them a boost and a hug–cyber is fine. Also don’t forget my special YALitChat ROW80 writers. Drop in and say hi and tell them they will make their goals. Everyone needs a bit of encouragement Sheri Larson, Susan Kaye Quinn, and Margo Berendsen.
My goals for this week are to Enjoy, Enjoy. Enjoy. Read. Read. Read.
Writers should be able to write what they want but never lose sight of the power these books have with teens. This is a huge responsibility and I take it seriously when I’m writing. I don’t think my books will ever be banned, and I don’t want that to happen. I want them to be read. I want the stories to create awareness of these social issues among readers, especially those parents, teachers and librarians who might be in a position to help a troubled teen.
