What I'm Reading:
I just finished a whole pile of middle grade books to get me in the mood to write my next MG adventure (see below). AL CAPONE DOES MY SHIRTS was a fun read. It was a historical that still felt very relavent.
THE YEAR OF BILLY MILLER was recommended to me at a conference as an example of great MG voice, and it did not disappoint. The voice and emotions portrayed by the kids in this book were brilliantly done.
What I'm Writing:
IT'S NATIONAL NOVEL WRITING MONTH! I love me some Nanowrimo. In fact, I participated in Nano in 2013 kind of on a whim, and now I am almost a real writer with an agent and everything! I love the spirit of Nano, and all the in-real-life events. Our local library has write-ins every Monday night in November and I love hanging out with other writers! This year, I am writing a middle grade geocaching adventure. Here's my progress so far:
What Else is Going On:
Tonight kicks off our SCBWI conference weekend! I can't wait to mingle with other authors, listen to some great sessions, and get some signed books! Woo Hoo! November is the best writing month EVER.
