BIRTHDAY! MINE! (and some other stuff.)

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 6, 2013, 9:00 AM
FROM THE DESK OF E. KRISTIN ANDERSON:

Hi Everyone!

It's my birthday, and it seems I've started a new tradition.  Over at Dear Teen Me, I've written another letter to my teen self.  As a birthday present to past me.  Past me could use a birthday present.

My dad, me, and my brother at my high school graduation in 2001.

As you know, I've joined Ye Olde Wattpad!  I've been feeling things out over there, and even started posting segments from a memoir that I'm writing in verse, with the working title THE SUMMER OF UNRAVELLING.

I've also posted a short story or two, as well as some poems in an informal collection (all of these poems are previously published in magazines).  Today we are also launching DEAR TEEN ME: EXTRAS! On Wattpad.  This collection will feature some of our favorite posts from the Dear Teen Me website, and hopefully bring these letters to a new audience.  Keep an eye on it.

And since I haven't been around much over the last month (SORRY!), I'm going to treat you to a picture of me from Austin ComicCon.  Dressed as Scully.  From The X-Files, duh.

So that's that.  Hope you enjoy these various pieces of writing in their various locales.  And happy Friday!

Happy birthday!!

... Wouldn't it be marginally more exciting to write letters to your future self? That way you'd get a hell of a lot of presents somewhere in the future!

Thanks!

Sometimes teachers have kids write letters to their future selves as a writing exercise to go along with the book.  I know one teacher who has kept them and is going to mail them out in a few years!

That's really cool! But I wonder what I would tell my future self other than "Wow, still there?! Well done..." :XD:
