Pieces of Me TEASER #1

Pieces of Me

He doesn't say anything--he just pulls me into his arms and I let the waves of emotion crash down the 

barriers I had so carefully constructed, smashing them to the ground with tsunami force, and I let it 

because I know that Holden's arms are going to keep me upright.

A years worth of tears spill onto his shirt—I didn't think it was possible to cry any more but I was 

wrong. He holds me in his arms until my eyes are red and dry and my breathing is nothing more than 

gasps of air and gulps as I try to regain a little of my composure. Despite the hindering hiccups, I feel 

like I can breathe for the first time in a long time.

So what does this mean?” he asks.

“It means that I'm trying. Trying to be normal, to be the kind of girl who gets all giddy over her new 

boyfriend, the kind of girl that smiles. But I'm not quite there yet. It means, that I'm asking for just a 

little time.”

“Time I can give. But Aria, don't take too long.”

New Job

In February I was offered a position at the local high school working with Seniors who are at risk for not graduating on time. It's only a part time job which I thought was perfect because I'd still have time to write during the day.

Well, it's true, I still have had time to write but it's been at a much slower pace. Which is fine. I had decided this year to focus on balancing things in my life better, and well, not staying up until 3 in the morning writing every night seemed like a pretty good place to start.

And it's been GREAT!

I love working with the students. I was kind of surprised that I love it as much as I do. I always figured I'd be more of an early childhood or elementary kind of person but nope, this is the population I was meant to work with.

Which I guess sort of makes sense--I do WRITE Young Adult stories after all. :)
