Last night, I went up to the Brighton Library and met with a teen writers' group called Scribblers Between the Lines. Holy bleeping awesomesauce. I haven't had that much fun in a while. I think the highlight for me was borrowing a pair of glittery devil horns from one of the girls and singing the Barney theme song.
I returned the horns at the end of the night. Reluctantly. I did not keep the Barney song, because that's impossible.
At the end of the night, they did a prompt--write a flash piece incorporating sugar lips and zombie football players. The universe nearly exploded from awesomeness when they read them. These are some seriously talented kids. In fact, the poets inspired me to try my hand at a poem or two. I haven't written any in YEARS.
Anyway, I wanted to take a minute to publicly thank the Scribblers for letting me visit their group and to thank C in particular for lending me those horns. Sparkles make everything better. Including teen writers' groups, cupcakes, the undead...the list goes on and on.
