"In summer,

the song sings itself."

William Carlos Williams

Just had to share my favorite shot from Nathan's latest photoshoot. It's so perfect. To me, it says summer and love and happiness-- all at the same time.

Have a lovely weekend, darlings!

Friday Favorites: summertime

1. mixtapes

Every single summer I make a mixtape (OK, it's really a mix CD) for myself and my friends. It's always an amalgamation of old and new stuff. Basically whatever is good for listening to on summer roadtrips or for driving under the stars, that kind of thing.

2. watermelon

3. sleeping in

Except when you wake up like this. Talk about disorienting, right?

4. Jackie O sunglasses

5. bare feet

Maybe because I wasn't ever supposed to go outside without shoes on, I still get a thrill from bare feet in summer.

What are your favorite things about summer?

So I asked some friends to help me pick the subject of my next short story.

"Confessions of a Teenage ______" (fill in the blank)

They said...
Kathryn - mutant ninja turtle, bounty hunter, psychic, insomniac
Kendi - mom
Andrew - zombie, librarian, zombie librarian
David - anything but vampires.

Some intriguing ideas... What do you think? This concept could really be the seed for some great stories.
Of course, I can't use "drama queen"

or "baboon." Unfortunately.

Also off the table: martyr,


and ....

does that say Jesus Jerk? Huh.

Anyway, if you have any other suggestions for fictional teenage memoirs, please keep 'em coming!
