This month, my brain has been over-loaded and turned to mush. I have been to both the CYA and SCBWI conference and have more advice than my little brain cells can handle. I’ve attended more book launches in the last few weeks than I’ve ever attended in my life and I’m transitioning from one work-in-progress to another.
But despite all of that, I know that this teensy story is true.
I found a USB in the back of my car this weekend that I’ve never seen before. I’m the second-owner of my car and I’ve had it for years now. There’s hardly ever anyone in the back seat and I just can’t figure out how the USB got there or who’s it could be. That’s the dull back-story.
What freaked me out was the name on the USB.
Mira is the lead character in my mermaid book and I had only recently finished writing the first draft. I’m quite secretive with my writing projects, so there are only a few people in the entire world who would know that.
I’ve had a few people ask what’s on the USB, but I don’t want to know. If I leave it a mystery then the magic stays alive with it and I prefer that to whatever the truth may be. In my experience, magic tends to be better than the truth…
