Happy Teacher Appreciation Day!

Anybody who’s followed me for a bit knows I appreciate teachers very much. I even worked as one for a while before I realized that the job requires superpowers I do not possess.

Guess what! I included a shout-out to my favorite high-school English teacher in Lost Marble Notebook. Mrs. Jackson really did tell me I could be a writer one day.

Imma be honest. Hiding shout outs and things I personally like in my work (what one writing friend calls her “secret happiness”) is one of of the best parts of writing.

What “secret happiness” would you like to sneak into your work?
