|Ultra Wicked Timepiece|
I've started writing a new story. It's falling out of me like those kids' guts in the climactic scene of Summer School. Hopefully, I'm using much better similes in my manuscript. If not, I'm in trouble.
I'm breaking away from realistic (boy) middle grade for awhile and writing something out of my comfort zone. The story is still middle grade, but it's a lot bigger and more adventurous than BIRD NERD or CROSSING CHALK. It also has something to do with time, but it's not time travel.
I'm gearing up for SCBWI-LA. It's going to be righteous. John Green, Laurie Halse Anderson, Norton Juster, Bruce Coville, Libba Bray, Gary Paulsen. My head is going to explode just thinking about it. After gathering my brain particles from the air and stuffing them back into my skull, I'll be posting my thoughts on the conference. Same bat time. Same bat channel.
Until then, enjoy an eleven year-old's sense of humor. Adventure Time is one of my students' favorite shows. I'm warning you, it makes no sense, but it's a riot.
