Into the World...

The new YA is taking its first steps out into the world tomorrow and I'm so excited I can barely sit still. It's like taking your baby out for the first time and have total strangers tell you if it is a thing of beauty or hideously ugly. Making it real hard to concentrate on my web writing, and I have to write articles on the 4th of July and Maypoles before the end of the week. I suppose I could start on the next book, which is a boycentric mid grade, but I'm not sure I can focus until this baby is put to bed.

T and I were sitting here after school and he started singing "We the order to form a more perfect union..." a la Schoolhouse Rock. He told me that they'd been watching episodes in school, so we launched into choruses of "Conjunction Junction" and of course the perennial favorite, "I'm Just a Bill". Good to know they're teaching quality stuff in second grade these days. And that my brain cells still remember the words.

On this date: In 1770, William Wordsworth is born.
