Kinda funny that this is back to school time, because I too have homework. Today in the mail I got the final pages for my new YA novel The Gardener. Final pages are typeset and look like the real thing. Now, my job is to go through and see how many goofs I can find. I just made it to page 100 and have found about nine. Most of them are little, like an extra word, or something that doesn't make sense. But I did find one goof that was totally due to me not being an Oregon resident at the time I wrote the book. Because, now that I am an Oregonian, this thing totally jumped out at me like "It's illegal to do that in Oregon!" I'm not giving it away, but I will certainly give a big kudo to anyone who can figure out this one thing you are allowed to do in almost every other state EXCEPT Oregon.
