Paxil Side Effects And Paxil Addiction

Slacker

Hi! I have gotten some emails this week, telling me that I am a terrible blogger. And I am. I haven’t written in ages.

I have been slowly working on a new book. I really love it but it’s a hard one to write. I’m not going to say anything about it yet because I’m all superstitious.

I have been listening to lots of music while I write. Currently in my ears, I am hearing “Hands” by the Ting Tings. Some Trey Songz, a little Kylie Minogue, Hot Chip, Florence and the Machine, Nicki Minaj (although I always want to call her Nicki Minja!), and, of course Glee!

I’ve also been terribly busy watching television. Like “Saturday Night Live,” “The Big Bang Theory,”
“Modern Family,” and “30 Rock.” Liz Lemon is my hero.

The new Miss Popularity isn’t going to be out until April but I saw the cover and I love it.

Here’s the first lil bit:
Cassie Cyan Knight looked at her green Swatch. 6:02! O MY G, she had to get inside! Her nightly iChat with her best friend, Erin Donaldson, was about to begin. She’d been sitting on the lawn, relaxing with the newest J.Crew catalog and had totally lost track of time. (And those periwinkle coulats on page 23 were a very good reason to get distracted. They were adorable!) Cassie jumped up and ran to the front door, her bare feet bouncing off the soft, warm grass, the golden Maine sun bright above.
It was May, at long last. Hooray! It had been six months since the Knight family had moved to Maine from Houston.
Six months since Cassie had been with any of her Texas girls, including Erin.
Six months of snowstorms, wearing boots almost all the time, and freezing cold temps.
Six months of camping and trees and nature.
Six months of being a student at Oak Grove, a private school that was so different than her beloved Sam Houston Elementary, back in big ol’ Texas.

I’m really excited about this one. I hope you guys love it.

Okay, I am going to go. I am also a publisher of books for a publishing company and I have to read book 2 in this awesome new series called “Hello, Gorgeous!” You guys should read it when it comes out.

And read Bedeviled, another fab series we publish!

Okay, I hope to not take so long to write again soon!

A Letter to Kristin Chenoweth

Dear Kristin Chenoweth,

Hi. We don’t know one another but we actually had a few good laughs last night at the “Stuffed and Unstrung” Henson improv show. You totally sat next to me and it took all my might to not tell you that your hair is really pretty and your laugh is so adorable.

You rock, sis. I write a series called Miss Popularity and I started the new book with a quite from Glinda. And some of the characters actually go see “Wicked” in the book, cause they love it so much.

You’re awesome. Just wanted to say that but didn’t want to say that cause I didn’t want to be that person.

I’m Leaving for Italy

In like a few hours and all I’m doing is procrastinating packing!

So I’m writing on the blog. Which I never do.

Headed to Bologna, then Florence, Pisa and Rome. Can’t wait.

So happy spring is here.

Hope everyone is good!

I am a Terrible Blogger

Because I never write here.

It’s been a very weird 2010 so far.

And it’s about to take a turn for the GREAT, when I leave on Saturday to teach a young adult writing workshop at Lake Atitlan in Guatemala.

Atitlan means “where the rainbow begins” in Mayan. Aaaah.

It’s snowing and awful here in Brooklyn and the radiator just wheezed and made me jump out of my chair. I need a break!
