So I'm sneaking in here. If I were a dog, my tail would be between my legs, because I was supposed to post last week. But my fall has been full of things to keep me busy in reality, keeping me away from my cyber-duties. In adddition to attending football and volleyball games every week, I've taken on some mentoring, some teaching at Gotham, and next week, a school visit trip to Indiana. It's easy to forget what I'm doing. But then there's always something to remind me why I do this. Yesterday, it was a package at the post office, containing the first copy of my new picture book, ( complete with a red bow from my editor) which I first signed the contract for in 2005. Wow, what a wait. But it has been so worth it, because I love the book and I think readers will too. Here's hoping you have a red ribbon day.
