Hi Peeps! What's up with YOU this week??
WHAT I'M READING
I just finished reading GOING HOME AGAIN by Abby Cavenaugh, and I am honest to blog blown away, you guys. Full disclosure--I'm also very biased because Abs is my peeps IRL, but seriously, this book is so so good. i'm sort of just excited to know someone who wrote something so heartwrenching. If you like adult contemporary romance that is sweet and painful at the same time, check it out. And I'm interviewing Abby on my blog on Friday, so you should check that out, too. =D
WHAT I'M WRITING
Working on author interviews for my blog September and waffling between WIPs at the moment. I need to get really, REALLY excited about a single project, and that's not happening right now, so I'm switching between the four I've got between 30-50K and hoping one of them snags me. So far not so much. Anyone ever been there? How do you get yourself out of this wishy-washy ick? RE: the author interviews if you write New Adult or YA and you've got a book coming out between now and the holidays, hit me up via the contact form in the side bar ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~>
WHAT ELSE I'M UP TO
This is my first week back to work after my first summer home with the kiddo. Part of me is really happy to not be sitting around the house chasing a one year old after two solid months without a break. Another part feels rather schmoopy about the whole thing. Next week will be MUCH more exciting as my inner-city students get to experience a brand new, state of the art school after being in a 50-year-old not-so-state-of-the-art school that will be demo'ed this weekend. We're talking iPads for all the kids to use, SmartBoards in every classroom, THE WORKS. I cannot wait to feel the new energy along with my kids. Morale is at an all-time-high and it is amazing to be a part of this transition. Times like this I really love my job.
WHAT'S INSPIRING ME
Everything and nothing in particular. Life is good. Writing could be better, but I'm not too frustrated by it (yet.) Still on a WriteOnCon high and holding my breath on other writerly things.
Okay, enough about me. Tell me what's up with YOU???
