“First single. Fucking brilliant. Perhaps the most fucking brilliant song ever written. Because they nailed it. That’s what everyone wants. Not 24-7 hot wet sex. Not a marriage that last a hundred years. Not a Porsche or a blow job or a million-dollar crib. No. They wanna hold your hand. They have such feeling that they can’t hide.”

Val with authors Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

I went to Andersen’s Bookshop in Naperville to see a reading with Rachel Cohn and David Levithan tonight, authors of Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist. I am a huge Rachel Cohn fan (Read Gingerbread and Shrimp) and she’s one of my favorite YA authors. That is me and them pictured above. Crappy pic, hehe. And I felt like sucha dork asking for a picture. Oh well, I’m over it. They were promoting their new book Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist, which is totally awesome. It was written one chapter at a time, alternating chapters between them, with Rachel writing from Norah’s POV and David from Nick’s. It was really interesting to hear them talk about it since they seemed so free in writing because since neither had total control of where it would go (they didn’t sit down together and discuss plot or anything ahead of time) so they could just kind of write. They talked about the process and read a little from the book and took questions. I had my copy signed and picture taken and they gave out cool blank cds with a sleeve to make our own infinite playlist on. I have to figure out what to play…

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
