Cool Writer Friends: So I heard my writer friend Emily Wing Smith speak at the UVU conference on how to write different voices. She brought the house down! Her book has six different narrators, so she knows what she's talking about.
Shannon Hale also spoke, and when an audience member asked her what her favorite books have been this year, she mentioned Emily's book The Way He Lived. What an endorsement.
It's Not Stalking
I've decided that since Rafa and I already know each other so well, it might be time for us to meet. I am leaving this great state to go see my honey play in the Indian Wells BNP Paribas Open Tennis Tournament!
I know he is thrilled. Just look at him.
Sam is staying behind, with the kids, and I know he is equally thrilled.
But, hey, he gets to go hang out with the cows in the deserts of Pakistan. It is only fair that I get to hang out with the mocha honey bears in the deserts of Palm Springs California.
To make Sam feel better about not going to Pakistan while I'm gone, I have provided him the video below, showcasing the rising tension in the area. He should thank his lucky stars he's not going there any time soon! (At least, until April).
