Jael’s pose in panel 3 is how I basically spent my entire school career. I think there were actually teachers who had to move me away from windows? (It didn’t work.) That also includes college, any transportation where I’m not the driver, and would include work except I don’t think I’ve ever had a job with proximity to a window. This would be a horrible problem if I had any other profession than writer, but it seems to have worked out for the best.

Thirteen pages left! I’m in Special Project world, and not really focused on things that are sent directly to my inbox or real life attention, but we found out the other day that we’re one of the Association of Booksellers for Children’s New Voices for 2011, which is a thing of like 10 kids’ books & 10 YA books written by first time authors. So that’s pretty cool!
