I ‘ve been invited to my 20 year high school reunion.
Oh my gosh! Am I really that old?
Yeah, I did the math. Turns out I am.
I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go. I mean I must have stayed in contact with the people I wanted to see, so what’s the point? But then I saw this post on Kitty Hietala’s blog. It reminded me of how easily we grow apart over the years.
And then the friend requests from facebook started coming. I realized there really are a lot of people I want to catch up with. So now I am kinda excited about it.
But I’m also a little worried. I mean there is a reason my YA fiction is filled with angst. I wasn’t your normal high school kid (Okay, I know, who was?).
I think this could be a good thing though. Who knows? Maybe seeing all those people from my past will give me inspiration for my next novel. Or maybe I’ll find out some of my classmates have teenagers [beta readers]!!!
