A Teeny-Tiny Update Thing9:31 PM
You'll get some longer posts later this week, I promise.
|Caroline and me and Katie and bestselling author Jonathan Friesen and Hannah and Laura because we all befriended the author this week and it was awesome.|
I have not stopped screaming since I got back home.
|still the most accurate gif of all the gifs.|
SO. I FLEW IN AND MET KATIE GRACE. KATIE. THE MOST AMAZING HUMAN. SHE IS SO CUTE, YOU GUYS. DISGUSTINGLY CUTE, REALLY.
We befriended Jonathan Friesen, as seen in the first picture, and bribed him with pizza, and bugged him all week. It was awesome. He was so encouraging and supportive.
We also had a long nice lunch with NYT BESTSELLING AUTHORS Jennifer Nielsen (The False Prince), Ally Condie (Matched), and Jacqueline West (Dreamers Often Lie) and discussed babies and tv shows and music that matches characters and basically they were so sweet and real and love and THEY SAID MY WRITING WAS EXCELLENT AND AMAZING AND BEAUTIFUL GOODBYE.
Ally Condie led my track group for speculative fiction writers and she's the funniest and said she loved my character (Elias, for all you Pariah peeps) and I cried.
We sung Hamilton in the hallways the whole time.
We cuddled and laid on the floor pretty much the whole time and screamed over each other's books.
As I said, I'll throw more pictures and screaming and productive things about what I learned at you this upcoming week (that might be all you hear this week) but I wanted to let you peeps know that I am, in fact, alive, and Katie and Hannah and Olivia and Caroline and Laura are the best peeps ever and I love them dearly and it was a week I'll remember forever and ever.
