I would love to do what Sarah Kay does. I find this TED talk energizing and exciting and leaving me wanting to go find teens to hang with. It's 20 minutes of your day so only watch it if you have the time. Some of you should be working on revisions, others of you have birthdays to get ready for and still others have classes this evening with writing exercises to come up with and bathrooms to clean. You know who you are.
I have an MFA in creative writing, an unpublished YA novel under my belt and in a drawer, my second, a novella, is nearly done. Click through the door below to write with me in The Practice Room (follow this link to read more about it). I post the schedule each Sunday - like clockwork. On the blog, I post whenever I like.
