Had a fantastic lunch yesterday with Jen. We chatted and ate and brainstormed, which was AWESOME. It was like some electrified ping-pong match, only we were playing with each other not against. Kind of went like:
"That's so cool, and then you could have...", "And if she did this, then that would be...", "Ooh, I love that, and if you went that direction you could do this...", "Or what about this..."
I also revealed my ultra secret YA project during lunch. And I'm pretty certain Jen could tell by my super-sonic blabbering and stumbling over words that I'm so freakin' excited about this book (as my agent can attest to as well). Really guys -- that's the only time I get that way. Promise. :D
All this creative talking is like 'Red Bull for Writers' to me. I went home and wrote 11 pages!
