This week, I've been helping my mom clean out my childhood home. (She's moving to an apartment). What a haul of memories, including my 6th grade autograph book and several journals from my tween/teen years.
Age 12: June 9: "Dear Diary, Today I'm changing my life. I'm NOT going to be shy, but popular with everyone. Tomorrow, Project Popularity goes into effect. I'll clue you in on how it goes!"Oh my...my writing hasn't changed in 40-plus years, like I'm starring in my own YA novel.
Dear Diary Invitation
I'm opening this up to a guest blog, featuring a different writer each week who is daring enough to share an entry from his or her childhood journals. I know you have them stashed away somewhere!
If you want to participate, please send the excerpt in a Facebook email, or in a direct email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, write a few lines about the entry -- year, your age at the time, anything else you want to say. And of course, mention any new or upcoming projects. Pictures are great, too.
Please share this invitation with any other authors you think would be interested.
