red scarves are instant popularity
So apparently red scarves create instant popularity. At least, it does if you wear it to LTUE like Brodi and Elana Johnson (apparently I missed that memo, because my scarf was brown. Note to self: buy a red scarf and wear it to the next writing conference. Unless the color for that conference is purple or yellow…).
But doesn’t Brodi just look fabulous in her red scarf? And even though I am smiling, I am secretly envious of that red scarf and planning to snatch it away so I can sell it on e-bay for thousands of dollars after her book comes out and she’s super famous (since she’s only somewhat famous now. I mean, I know her). And I am so excited for her book EVERNEATH to come out next year. Here’s a short description, so you can get excited, too!
EVERNEATH is partially based on the Greek myth of Persephone: a 17-year-old who’s been banished to the underworld escapes to her former earthly existence with her family and boyfriend. The catch is that she only has six months in the real world before being sent back to Hades, this time forever.
See, even James is excited about Brodi’s book coming out next year — can’t you just see that smile? I think he’s secretly planning on stealing Brodi’s scarf, too. But I know I’ll get it first! Oh . . . and if you haven’t checked out Brodi’s blog, be sure to do so now! It’s absolutely hilarious.
So what has you excited these days? Besides red scarves, of course.
ps. It was so awesome to see all my writer friends at the conference! *big wave in case I missed you somehow*
