Know lots of interaction isn't for everyone. Used to read more. Found my readers like asking questions. You do what works for you.
Re this article about bookstore events:huff.to/19FAzpn
: I do VERY short reading, short talk, lots of Q&A. More fun for everyone.
It's official: I'll be at @Malaprops
in Asheville, NC Thursday, August 8th. 7pm. SO excited! Hope to see some of you there! #TheMoonandMore
Am grateful for the stories, don't get me wrong. But harder to be wild at 42 than 24. And a little sadder too. Growing up: it's okay.
Making pb&j before heading to park and grocery store. What happened to the wild girl I used to be? Truth: don't miss her all that much.
This picture from Emerald Isle--my Colby--just came up on my screensaver. Sigh. instagram.com/p/Zc_LV7hDPt/
Daughter and I just did ALL chicken duty on our own. Baby chicks, bantams and big girls (and Foghorn). Feeling VERY capable. Temporarily.
REALLY interesting piece about bookstore events. Must read for authors AND booksellers! huff.to/19FAzpn
Saturday morning and the house is quiet. For about one more minute, until my kid....oh, there she is. And we're off! #parenthood
This has never happened to anyone. RT“@vidalsassoon
: That moment when you realize you've got the best shoes - and hair - in the room."
Marriage truth: watching end of Beaches for as long as I can while husband is in garage. *sniffles* Wait, here he comes....
Re-watching The Office finale, this time with my husband. Will probably still cry, as am a sap.
Daughter and I are watching Making Fiends. Should I be proud or scared that she knows every word to this song? youtube.com/watch?v=fP9aGd…
After week like this, is required that you have nachos/pimiento cheese and crackers for dinner. At least, that's what I'm telling myself.
Stuck in traffic only a few miles from home. At least we have the radio. #Friday
For those who asked, info about THE MOON AND MORE on my website: sarahdessen.com/book/the-moon-…
. Related: so proud for updating the page myself!
I just had that moment where I realized my new book is coming out really soon and got excited and totally anxious at the same time. YIKES.
(2/2) Who's going to be at this panel? @RichelleMead @andreacremer @sarahdessen @Marie_Lu
GET EXCITED & make plans to come!
Watching 'How to Deal' in the Teen Room this afternoon. We <3 @sarahdessen #localauthorlove
Still time! RT @TigerEyesMovie
to win a trip to LA for VIP screening, meet the @hellogiggles
team and me! (US only, contest ends 4pm PST)
Totally checked out this BEA ad for a full minute before realizing I was IN it. Whoa! instagram.com/p/ZbMY_ihDEk/
Slow down! RT @ChapelHillPD
on MLK Jr. Blvd. this afternoon. Spd limit is 35. Please drive safely.
On flip side, I wish I'd figured out so much stuff BEFORE my 40s. But that's life. Once you get one thing, something else is gone. Oh, well.
I'm about to turn 43. *gulp* But one GREAT thing about my age is that you can decide you are just DONE with certain things. It's freeing.
Already regretting buying those shorts. Didn't even take a week this time. Note to self: you don't do shorts. Or Indian food. Or yoga. Okay?
Have just purchased pair of shorts. If tradition holds, will be questioning sanity and returning them within a week. I am so predictable.
Last day of our preschool snack week. I am SO relieved! It's the little things.
The Friday Five is UP! It's like a miracle, considering this day. Yay! sarahdessen.com/?p=3670 #fb
Could have been worse. Could have worn it to preschool. New mom fashion trend? Okay, I need coffee.
Just lost a game of Pretty Pretty Princess to my kid. Also forgot I was wearing one plastic yellow earring until she pointed it out. #tired
My husband handled dogs and kid and house for full week while I toured. I'm mere hours in and ready to lose my mind. *jumps into coffeepot*
Between dogs and daughter, was up three times last night between 10:30pm and 6am. So tired I feel like I'm on drugs. Not in a good way.
I am literally five minutes into The Office retrospective (not even the finale!) and I am weeping. Dear God. Will be a long night, I think.
Just caught my puppy Goose in process of destroying my silver butterfly Havaiana flip-flops. There are no words. Honestly. Bad dog!
Only a couple of days until the NYC launch for "Ayahuasca: Welcome to the Work"
So excited that @RobLowe
is on @GMA
tomorrow! If they don't show "Way to be, duck," something is wrong in the world: youtube.com/watch?v=vbqYgO…
The end of Brave always gives me the chills and gets me all choked up. Moms and Daughters of any age: you need to see this. Together.
Sitting down with my girl to watch Brave, again. We LOVE Merida. Especially with her bow and arrow. (Are you listening, Disney?)
S&S signs new YA novel by @jennyhan

My first @facebook
chat is starting in about five minutes. Go here to ask me a question. on.fb.me/13zD9xl
I think answer is yes, but have provided the question marks in case anyone feels like telling me I'm wrong. *waits*
Tonight is The Office series finale. Husband and I have watched together from the start. He won't be home. So I'll have to wait? To watch?
Just to be clear, if you bitch about crying babies, even if I agree with you, I'll never agree with you.
Everyone laughs at my shoebox collection, until their dioramas are due
A Mac and cheese food truck is now coming to my work. It's official, the cosmos wants me to be as fat as possible
