YOUR MATCHES ARE READY

IT IS DONE.

It took a while. I had about 315 entries to read and combine using SCIENCE, but your BEDA BUDDIES are now ready to go. And in case someone out there thinks this was RANDOM, I offer the scene from my desk:



100 pages of BEDA BUDDY notes, final draft of Scarlett Fever lurking behind, ready for copyedit


I decided to combine in groups of four—you know, like a rock band! (There's one group of five.) And that way, if a member of your group goes rogue, you’ll still have other members to carry on. I did my best to identify you when just a first name was given. You have to find each other (you’re all on the BEDA BUDDIES discussion on the Ning.)

What happens now is ENTIRELY UP TO YOU. You can establish any routine you want. You can name yourselves. You can spend a week trying to figure out why I put you together (aside from age—that usually played a factor, but there were always other reasons). You can stay together for BEDA, or you can stay together FOREVER! You can start projects, you can do group blogs . . . you can do WHATEVER YOU WANT!*

The only rule is that you have to be respectful of your new BUDDIES. They may not be just like you!

I’ll see you tomorrow with a TRADITIONAL BLOG.

Okay, I posted this on your last entry, but I want to make sure that you saw it.

It sparks, and a lot less dangerous than a tazer.

You wanted questions...
Are you going to try to get out of the trapeze thing?
Will you get John Green to do the trapeze school with you? (I, personally, would let you off the hook no matter how many pbs sold, if you could videotape John Green going to trapeze school. Nerdfighters, back me up here!)
Will you write a third Scarlett book?
Can you just, like, magically make six new books by you appear next year? Because that would be awesome.
Why doesn't my library have a section labeled nerdfighters? They have fantasy, mystery, and sci fi...
Hope this is enough questions to blog about!
