Hey everybody! It has been while since I caught you up on all the goings on around here, so I'm gonna get you up to speed!
What I'm Reading: Summer is the BEST time for reading, don't you think? I listened to some awesome audio books while driving to Colorado, sunning on the beach and hanging by the pool. And since I wasn't doing any drafting, I let myself indulge in some adult reads!
I read THE HUSBANDS SECRET and loved it! I especially loved how the author used the epilogue to let the reader in on some secrets that even the characters didn't know! I also got to meet LauraMcHugh, fellow mid-west writer, this summer at the Woodneath Library. Her book THE WEIGHT OF BLOOD was a real page turner!
What I'm Writing: Right now I am about 50% done with the second round of edits on my MG Swiss Family Robinson Retelling. I hope to have it off to CPs by the end of the week. The only other writing work I got done over the summer was editing the MG fantasy I wrote back in February. I'm really having trouble with it, though, so have decided to shelve it until inspiration strikes. I am also trying to come up with an idea for this year's Nanowrimo. I'm thinking contemp MG, hopefully something funny. So wish me luck!
What Else is Going On: BOTH KIDS ARE BACK IN SCHOOL AND IT MAKES ME SO HAPPY! My little guy will be in pre-K for three whole days per week, and my daughter is now a big second grader (eeeek!)
