Brandon Mull and me. He's thinking,
"This is the first time that woman has shut her trap since we arrived at the studio."
Oh my goodness. I keep forgetting to tell you cool things. We'll chalk it up to the clinically documented condition known as Summertime Brain Leak.
On my birthday, Kristina Pulsipher Facebooked me and said I should dedicate myself to being a shameless self-promoter. I assume she said this because she knows how much I hate doing that, and also because she's a pill. Think I'm kidding? When Jessica Bern wished me a happy birthday "to the sweetest woman I know," (something I get ALL the time), Kristina commented and said, "You must not know DeNae very well."
I'm having lunch with Kristina tomorrow, and I intend to sneeze on her hamburger to restore balance to the universe. If that doesn't work, I'll probably burn her house to the ground. One way or another, balance will be restored.
But this was one of those fun things that I didn't get paid to do or anything like that, but was a complete gas and something I wanted to share with you all.
DISCLAIMER: You're about to read a disclaimer.
DISCLAIMER: This is a super-Mormony post. Seriously. I'm about as Mormon as I can be in this post without actually tripping you all into my pool and baptizing you, which wouldn't take anyway but would get my numbers up on my Straight N' Narrow punch card.
DISCLAIMER: There is no such thing as a Straight N' Narrow punch card. Totally made that one up.
Anyway, without further ado, here are Brandon Mull (the author of 'Fablehaven'), Elisa Scharton, and me talking about being a Mormon writer and how we use social media in our writing. We also examine the question of whether it's possible for me to talk so much with my hands flapping that I actually take flight.
This will be broadcast live this Saturday, the 23rd, at 3:00 mountain time on the Mormon Channel. Or you can watch it right now. (I'll be yapping at the Teen Writers Conference during the broadcast, so yay for YouTube!)
