What I'm Reading: Somebody suggested I might like a new series. Anybody a fan of OUTLANDER? It's pretty much awesome and quite the departure from the kid lit i usually read. I just finished book two and I can't wait to start book three! I also read another adult book this last week (two in a row!) called AFTER I DO by Taylor Jenkins Reid. The characters in this book reminded me a lot of my husband and I... until they did what they did. LOL.
What I'm Writing: So back in February I drafted a MG Fantasy called THRICE STRIKEN, and I have spent this month revising it. It's a little bit cleaner now, but still need a bunch of work. Lots of time between rounds of editing is the key. It helps you read each draft with fresh eyes.
What Else is Going On: Last night I hosted a SCBWI critique group at the library. We had seven (!) people show up, and everyone brought stuff to be critiqued! It was a really good group and we had a fun mix of YA and MG. Also, there were scones.
Until next time, may the writing muses smile on you!
