Get Goosebumps!

For all you fans of Goosebumps out there, just in time for Halloween, I went to an event at the Scholastic headquarters and got to meet R. L. Stine, creator of the Goosebumps series. (As well as many other fine series!) He was really great - so funny and nice. And he really seems to love his readers.

His advice to those of you who want to become writers? Read a lot and write everyday - even if you're just writing in a journal. Good advice - that would be mine as well! You can't write if you don't read. :)

Here we are together. Notice he's not smiling. That's because he's supposed to be scary!!! :) You can't see him in the picture but right behind him was Slappy the puppet!

If you want to check out the webcast I went to, you can do that on the Scholastic website.
