My father and I were talking on the phone the other night… He suggested that I spearhead an effort, with my former students, that would lead to a sequel to DEAL WITH IT! Powerful Words from Smart, Young Women. Talk about telecommuting!!! I kind of groaned thinking that he wasn’t serious. But he was.
His idea was to write a book about standing up for what you believe in since you shouldn’t always just “deal with it.” Sometimes you have to take action and therefore he thought it might be a great idea to work with kids to write a book like that.
I threw the idea past some of The Extended Day Girls on Friday. They looked at me a little funny, as if to say, “you want to do this again?!?!?” I think I actually do, but not yet. I think I’d need them to step-forward to show me that they’re really, truly interested. And, this time, we’d have to use a regular publisher! (Anyone know of a literary agent to pitch this idea to and/or an editor who might be truly interested in this project?)
