Sick of us yet? More GIRL MEETS BOY Blog Tour stuff!
When I first agreed to host a day of the tour, I was planning to have a conversation with Terry Davis about our experience writing shared stories...but with him in St. Marys in Rochester, that didn't happen. I had plenty of conversations with him there, but none that you'd want to read about here.
One of the things I wanted to talk was how it's OKAY to be FRIENDS with your EX. If you live long enough and perhaps a certain way, you do collect an ex or two. The kids who are characters in GIRL MEETS BOY most likely will all have an ex or two (some already do) by the time they reach 30 or 40 or 50.
I learned more about writing from Terry Davis than from any other single human being on the planet. Getting to write a shared story with him was an honor.
I talked about this process in an interview on The Book Cellar that's up and running today. Kelly Milner Halls, the illustrious, prolific, and crazy-delightful editor (and one of the contributing authors) of GIRL MEETS BOY interviewed me. This sums up lots of what I wanted to say about the experience of writing this story.
