What’s Up Wednesday is hosted by Jaime Morrow. Check out her blog for the scoop!
What I’m Reading – I just finished Star Crossed by Jessica Spotswood last night and OMG. The Ending. OMG. I gave Born Wicked and this one 5 stars each. I’m completely depressed that I have to wait until NEXT AUGUST to read Sisters’ Fate. :::kicks rocks:::
What I’m Writing – I’m slowly plugging away on my NaNoWriMo story. I decided at the last minute to go with the contemporary adult romance novel and I’m having a blast writing all the kissing scenes. I’d hoped to be more ahead in my word count since Sammie’s surgery is later this month, but that’s life, right?
OH. And I also sent out ten queries at the end of last week. I’ve received two standard rejections already, which was slightly depressing, but there’s no choice but to keep moving forward, right?
What Else I’ve Been Up To – I took the kiddos with me to vote in our local election yesterday. I had fun explaining the process and importance to Sammie. Emmett just cried when the election helpers talked to him.
We spent some time exploring in the woods over the weekend, but mostly it’s been rainy so we’ve been inside a lot.
Just this morning Emmett had his 9 month well check up that turned into a sick visit. He has croup and an ear infection. This explains his horrible night last night and the constant crying this morning. Poor kid. Anyone have a caffeine IV drip handy? Because, I’m going to need one ASAP.
What’s Inspiring Me Now:
I went to a NaNoWriMo write in Monday night at the new library near me that I’ve been writing at all summer. The views are gorgeous and the building is fancy and new and bright.
Jennifer Brown was on hand to give us a great pep talk before we started typing.
We got prizes for word count achievements, and I won this Panera Gift Card. Yay!
