Charlie was here.

I just spent a week in the Texas hill country, at a retreat that also serves as a summer camp. (What better place to write for young people?) My cabin had bunk beds with years of camper-graffiti scratched and inked into the wood. The minute I got there, I lay down on the bottom bunk, looked up, and saw these words: “Charlie was here.” And I had to laugh so hard. Charlie is the main character of The Someday Birds, and he is so special to me — it’s like he’s real. This just confirmed it. I had come to exactly the right place, to write!
