The super awesome and super talented Lauren Baratz-Logsted is doing a “single-question” blog tour. I’m excited because she has a new book coming out called THE EDUCATION OF BET due out in July from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
I got to ask her anything I wanted. And, since I’m lucky enough to talk to her often, I had to think hard. Something I don’t get to talk to her about is how she manages to do it all. You see, Lauren is very talented (yeah, I know I said that already). She writes books for kids, teens and adults. She’s also a mom and a wife. You don’t even want to know about the short stories and articles–that would be rubbing it in.
So,when it came time to formulate my question, it was easy. My question: You have a tireless schedule. What do you do to rest your brain, recharge or give yourself a “silly break?”
Lauren: “I watch General Hospital, every day from 3-4pm. If I can do that, it doesn’t matter if I’ve just worked eight hours straight since 7am and that I may be going back for a second writing shift after it’s over. At least if I take that civilized little break to watch the uncivilized citizens of Port Charles, I feel like there are still luxuries in my life. Oh, and Twitter helps too. It’s the ultimate palate cleanser between scenes and chapters.”
And there you have it.
Wanna know where Lauren will be tomorrow (May 7)? She’ll visit Liz Burns talking about her all-time favorite TV show.
Check out yesterday’s (May 5) stop with Sherry where Lauren talked about her last YA release CRAZY BEAUTIFUL.
