What I'm Reading
I finally received my copy of WISH YOU WERE ITALIAN by Kristin Rae so I put To All The Boys aside (for now) and started this one. I'm almost a third of the way through and I love it. It's a sweet, cute read. Perfect for summer time (yes..we skip right over spring here in the south). And, yes, Gelato is a must while reading. I'm also reading Sweet Little Thing by Renee Carlino. It's okay, though I'm not as drawn in as I was with Sweet Thing, which I adored.
What I'm Writing
Hit the 20K mark on When The Wind Blows today! It feels good. I thought I'd never get there. I started this WIP late last year and got a good chunk. But then it needed a rewrite. And another one. But I finally think I have it where it should be and keep coming up with ideas to move it forward. I'm worried. It's usually not this easy. We'll see where it goes. I keep insisting I'm breaking it but my CP assures me I'm not. I think she's biased.
What Inspires Me Right Now
Meeting a deadline. The more I think about the deadline my CPs and I made for each other the more I want to push myself to make it.
What Else I've Been Up To
Where to start? It's been a busy week. I was off work last Friday for kiddos Kindergarten field day. It was a lot of fun. He competed in five events and did great in each one. I'd like to say they won them all...but that wasn't the case. But he did have fun!
Then, after school and work that night, kiddo and I met my mom for the Of Neptune book signing. It was a lot of fun. Kiddo even spent some time signing bookmarks with his Aunt Anna (Anna Banks is my sister-in-law. I wouldn't normally allow him to go up and annoy the author like that. But, it's okay when it's family because that's what they're for). I wish I could have stayed longer and hung out through the entire event but it was a school night and kiddo had state testing the next morning (which he aced!).
So what have you been up to?
