And...my letter to my teen self is up on the Dear Teen Me site. Check it out HERE. I hope you like it.
The whole concept behind The Dear Teen Me Project is rather brilliant. Two fellow writers, E. Kristin Anderson and Miranda Kenneally, conceived the idea of authors and publishing folk writing letters to their teen selves - letting them (and most importantly current teen readers) know that they make it through teenagehood. It is such a genuine way to give advice and share experiences...without preaching or "giving a talking to".
I also hope you like my new title. I sure do.
