What I'm Reading: I stayed up late last night finishing UPSIDE DOWN IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE. It is about a family who endures Hurricane Katrina. This is a heartbreaking read. Like, I got real tears. And amazing MG voice. I highly recommend.
What I'm Writing: Last week I was about here:
And today I am here:
You will note that the progress bar has turned green, so that is exciting! But the ending to this thing is getting out of control. I see some major rewriting in my future. But maybe it will be one of those things where I put it away for a while and when I come back to it I find that it is bloody brilliant??? Maybe??? We shall see. Oh, and my goal would be to get to 50K by next week.
What works for Me:
I am running out of things that work for me. And right now I am not entirely sure any of it is working for me. Blah. Sometimes writing is like, super hard. :/
What Else is Going On:
We got a break from arctic temperatures here in Kansas City this last week, and my kid enjoyed some time outside.
So what's up with all of you???
