I am determined to finish my novel before school resumes in January. I am on p154. I will tell you what page I'm on until I finish, which I think will motivate me to keep my word to myself.
How you can help: tell me embarrassing slumber party stories. Tell me humiliating ones. Especially if you are a girl. Especially if the story happened in middle school circa 1997. Once your story is incorporated into my book, you will be absolved of the cringing memory of it. I promise/hope. If it is too horrible to relate publicly, you could email leighstein AT gmail DOT com.
