That Time I Got to Be in Glamour Magazine, But Still Failed to Be Glamourous.

best writing coaches Carrie Jones

One day when we were doing press for the anti-bullying anthology, DEAR BULLY, something that I never imagined would happen, happened. 

No, I did not suddenly learn how to fly.

This is Super Girl. She can fly, and rock a cape.

No, Grover did not propose. 

Some day I will, Cawwie. 

Instead, I was in a real photo shoot with a real make-up artist and real stylist and real photo shoot coordinator and real photographer with assistant. 

For Glamour Magazine.

Yes, seriously. Glamour Magazine. 

And I wore make-up. And it was cold, but I still managed to not fall down or turn into an ice cube. 

It was for the Dear Bully anthology that Megan Kelley Hall and I are doing with Harper Collins, so I couldn’t cop out because it’s for a good cause.

Laurie Faria Stolarz had a submission with “Dear Bully” as its title. Isn’t that a good title? She is a genius. And also very nice. So we used it for the whole book.

And so anyway, I was totally out of my comfort zone and the whole time that I was panicking and thinking, “Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh. I have to wear make-up. Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh. People are going to see my picture. Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh. I have to wear clothes that do not belong to me.”

Really, it’s true. You wear clothes that are not yours at these things. So, I was kind of thinking I’d get to wear something glammy because it is GLAMOUR MAGAZINE, but since they did the shoot in Maine, it was basically …. um…. LL Bean. 

Yep. I was in Glamour wearing Maine anti-glam clothes.

Someday, I swear, I’ll be glammy. Really. I will. It’s on my bucket list. 

I am on a cow. That is on the bucket list of me, Grover, and I manage to do it fabulously and glamorously, don’t I? 

Yes, I know Grover. You do.

But the point here is that if YOU EVER have to do a photo shoot with Glamour, do NOT be scared because the people are so awesome and nice and kind and patient. It’s amazing. I fell in love with all of them. They were just that cool.
