Hello everyone! We apologise for having been sort of MIA lately, but you know how sometimes life gets in the way of blogging.
Lauren is back in the US, and she had an awesome time in Japan!
Here's what she had to say about it:
Did you miss me?? I’m back in the good US of A (although I won’t actually be home for a while—tonight I stay in Newark, NJ, and tomorrow I’m off for the NCTE/ALAN conference in sunny Orlando!) and already missing the splendor and stateliness—and, of course, the FOOD—of Japan. My trip was too wonderful and expansive to be described in anything close to concise terms, so I will prove traitorous to the society of writers and follow the old adage “a picture is worth a thousand words.” There will be 4,000 words below…enough for a chapters’ worth!
My experience in Japan, in a place totally foreign to me in every way (I had never been farther east than Budapest) has inspired me to generate a NEW WRITING CHALLENGE. So check back at the beginning of next week, and I’ll be kicking off a new online writing workshop.
In the meantime, I’ll be hobnobbing with fabulous authors, editors, and librarians, and lounging poolside…and maybe even seeing Mickey Mouse! Fingers crossed, peeps. Fingers crossed.
You can read the original post in Lauren's blog.
On another note, the Fallen Archangel's Before I Fall Read-Along starts this next Saturday 27th! Will you be joining us? There'll be regular posts as we read the book, but you can join the discussion here.
