Today will be a short post, but I simply had to write an update to tell you all two exciting things!

Please bear with me as I start today’s post with a shameless plug.  I was interviewed on the StoryADay.org blog and the interview was posted today!  This is the first time I’ve been interviewed anywhere so I’m super-excited.  If you want to read about my story-writing experience and learn more about this awesome project called Story A Day, you can read all about it here.

Also, if you haven’t heard about Figment and you’re into writing (especially Teen literature) you absolutely must check out this site.  It just launched today and it is co-founded by Dana Goodyear, staff writer at The New Yorker, and Jacob Lewis, former Managing Editor at The New Yorker and Condé Nast Portfolio.  Um… shall we say awesome?  Anyway, I’ve already joined the Figment network because I have a hunch this is gonna be so super-cool.  (If you join, look me up and friend me, ‘k?)  Over the next few weeks I’ll be exploring everything this site has to offer and posting more about it soon.

That’s all the news I have for now.  Have an iggitastic day!

          Love the blog, thanks for awesome posts and links!

          Story a Day reminds me of Suzan-Lori Parks' baby of 2006, "365 Days/365 Plays." As she explained at a conference that year, "It is, what it is" — she wrote a play each day. And now I'm digging the story-each-day idea, too =)
