Want to Know What I'm Doing Right Now?

There are very few books I've read more than twice and STARGIRL is one of them. I'm mentioning this Spinelli book in my Work-in-Progress, so I dug it out and dug in. STILL love it. What can I say? Jerry Spinelli has a way with words.

In the copy I have, there is an interview with The Jerr. Authors are often asked the question below--even I'VE been asked this question. I love Jerry's answer. It's simple and wonderful.

THE QUESTION: What advice do you have for young writers?
SPINELLI'S SPIN: "For me, there are many little rules, all superseded by one Golden Rule: Write what you care about."

Thanks, Jerry. That's just what I needed today.
