It’s been a few weeks since I’ve updated, because I’ve been busy with my rewrite. Sadly, it’s still not quite done, but I’ve made a lot of progress.
WHAT I’M READING
Not much, although I did finish (and enjoy) TEXAS GOTHIC by Rosemary Clement-Moore. And I’ll start soon on ALLEGIANT for YA Book Club.
WHAT I’M WRITING
The last five or six chapters! I’m taking Thursday off from work and I’m going to spend the day holed up in my writing cave.
Who’s with me???
WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW
Talented teens. I say this several times a year, usually after I watch a production put on by one of the local high schools, which is precisely what happened this past Saturday. My younger bro and his school participated in a one-act festival and I thought they were fantastic. The judges agreed because they won first place! Now they’re on to the next level.
WHAT ELSE I’VE BEEN UP TO
A few weeks ago, I went to a festival of the leaves, but it was raining so I didn’t get any pics. I did however come home with several butternut squash because one of my cousins had a booth for her bakery business and she’d also brought along the spoils of her garden. I put them in my closet because I read it’s best to store them in a cool, dark place. I really hope I don’t forget about them.
Celebrating my seventh wedding anniversary. In a few months, it’ll be 18 years since I first met my husband. If someone had told me that winter night that I’d end up married to this mouthy, opinionated guy, I would have laughed. He says the reason we get along so well is because we’re both strong-willed. Whatever, as long as he knows I’m always right.
I went to a library book sale and the look my hubby gave me as I skipped through the door with an armful of books = priceless. The smirk he gave me when I came back from the middle school book fair was even better.
I watched a zombie walk. It was a first-ever event in my town and they shambled down my street. Most weren’t in character, but it was still an entertaining few minutes.
And, finally, I PAID OFF MY CAR!!! The engine light is permanently on, the power steering fluid has to be frequently replaced, and the driver’s side door likes to lock me in, but all that crappiness officially belongs to me!
