What I'm Reading: I just finished UNGIFTED by Gordon Korman, and I loved his MG voice. I thought the plot was clever and the characters were fun. Some of the Goodreads reviews said that they felt like gifted students were being stereotyped in this book (no social skills, Starwars fans, etc.) , so that is something to consider, but overall, I really liked it.
What I'm Writing: I am deep in the editing trenches for the next couple of months y'all. I have three manuscripts that need work, so that is what I'm writing. Not very exciting, I know...
What's Inspiring Me: I have really enjoyed the twitter community and support surrounding Pitch Wars. For me, it's a little bit like buying a lottery ticket. Your chances of actually winning aren't that great, but the weeks of dreaming are worth the price of the ticket. I did get pages requested from one of my mentors, so I consider that a win already. At least it means my query and first chapter aren't total crap, right? Not so inspiring is Writeoncon for me right now. I have had some comments that were a little harsh, I feel. But I guess all of that helps me get better, right?
What Else is Going On: My daughter started Kindergarten, and so far she is loving it. I miss her during the day, but not as much as my two year old son does. The two of us have had a lot of one on one time lately, so that is good.
Hope you all have been keeping busy! Let me know what you've been up to!
