FIRST: I’ve seen the cover and interior proofs of the book! I KNOW WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE AND I AM SO EXCITED!!!
(I really dislike using more than one exclamation point in a row because it’s overkill, so me using three in a row proves my excitement)
I still need to officially approve this stuff, but I have it and it’s beautiful and I can’t wait to show you.
Now, let me calm down…
Okay. Time for another Monday quote from the book-that-now-has-a-face for your reading pleasure:
And some thoughts on it:
For Sadie, the main character in All of This, she pays attention to eyes. When you read the book, you’ll notice she comments on people’s eyes a lot; whether it’s just eye color or something deeper. There’s a reason for this, even though I didn’t originally start the story knowing why. But she’s an analyzer. She’s seen more than her share of the world, and her experiences are like a filter she uses to figure people out.
So. A question for you. Think it over and feel free to share your answer in the comments:
What’s something you always pay attention to in others? Why? What does that trait tell you about people?
Me? I love eyes, too. Sadie and I aren’t even close to being the same person, but that’s something we have in common. Often, eyes are the key feature that stand out to me after I meet a person. As someone who likes to try to figure people out (in a totally non-creepy way, of course), I pay attention to eyes. Sometimes eyes give away exactly what someone’s thinking or feeling. Other times, you have to look harder. I refuse to quote the eyes-are-the-window-to-the-soul thing (oh, wait…), but they really do let you see people’s emotions, struggles, joys, etc.
Thanks for checking in! I’ve pulled a bunch of quotes for future posts already, and some of them are…random. So check back next Monday for more!
