Random Thoughts From This Week

1. My little guy finished first grade today. Holy crap. I have a second grader now. And  Kindergartener. It makes my eyes tear up to have two in school in the fall. :(

2. I'm finally making progress on my WIP's. Yes, I'm not just writing one. My brain can't focus on just one right now. So, I'm writing my Fairy Tale sequel, a paranormal and a contemporary. The contemporary is just for fun, so I'm more focused on the others. Still. It's good to be writing again.

3. Yay for Memorial Day weekend! Are you guys doing anything fun? We're just hanging out with the fam and having a BBQ. Good times! ;)

4. It's been cloudy for days. No rain. Annoying. I love the rain. It makes me want to sit in the house and write all day. In other words, do nothing. Ha! Lazy much? :)

5. I got some good news this week. My release date for NOT YOUR AVERAGE FAIRY TALE is August 1st!!! :D :D :D That makes me all kinds of happy!! And I get to see my cover next week. I'm so nervous. It's kind of ridiculous how nervous I am. Ha ha. Anyway, have a happy Friday and a fun Holiday weekend!!

I really need this weekend to kind of unwind. The only thing I have planned is to see Men In Black. I may go to the park and read some if the weather is good. Allergies have been acting up (although Allegra helps some) it generally leaves me feeling lethargic.

Yay release date!!!! I'm taking this weekend to get back into revising. I took some time off and I am eager to get back into the swing of things - I can see the end of the light.....eventually :-P

My daughter is almost finished with first grade too! And then I'll have two more in Kindergarten next year. I love that our kids are the same age :)

Three WIP's? Girl, you're crazy...crazy awesome! Way to go!

Oh, it's a holiday this weekend? That's right, we aren't doing a single thing. Boring.

Clouds without rain or clouds with rain, story of my life here in Oregon :)

I'M SO EXCITED FOR YOUR BOOK!!!!

And just for the record, this is my first comment on any blog in like two or three months! See, I'm getting there.

And it's raining a bunch where I'm at. But with all my munchkins running around I don't know how much writing I'll get done.

I love rain too, but rain in Georgia means way to much humidity.

Jessica R. Patch said...

Congrats on your release date! That's awesome! My oldest is going into 8th grade and is already in the HS marching band! What the what?! :)

I'm going to take advantage of the fact that pain is keeping me laid up but my head is finally clearing out. Hopefully I get some really productive writing in.

So excited for your book!!!

Leslie Pugh said...

I would be nervous too but so excited! And I bet it's going to be an awesome cover!

Have a great Memorial Day weekend! Going to be painting trim, writing a church talk, and getting ready for a future yard sale here.

The sight of your first cover has to be very, very special!! Yay! And my kids "graduate" from kindergarten and fifth grade next week. Yikes - a middle-schooler! (I prefer not to think of that yet!)

Working on multiple things at once can be stressful but also fun. I hope it's mostly the latter for you. ^^

And I can't wit to see your cover! I bet it's going to be fabulous.

This weekend has been and will continue to be very busy for me. Saturday I had a sleepover for my sister's birthday. Today I'm going over to my best friend's house so she can give me a ride to the pool party we're going to tomorrow. Then I will spend the night at another friend's house. Between all that I'm hoping to get most of the laundry done and get this short story I'm working on into shape.
