What's Up Wednesday: Frankly, My Dear Edition
What's Up Wednesday hails from the blogs of Jaime Morrow and Erin Funk. Join the fun on your own blog and then go to Jaime's to add your link - it's a great way to share what's going on in your life and get to know other bloggers! Here's what's up:
WHAT I'M READING:
Lots of client work - in fact, client work has been keeping me very busy the last couple of months. I'm also reading fellow YA Buccaneer's Caroline Tung Richmond's THE ONLY THING TO FEAR.
WHAT I'M WRITING:
Well, I'm not. I was on a pretty good roll there for a long time, but since August, life has thrown us a few curve balls (not all bad), and between work, kid stuff, client work, and life maintenance, my writing fell into the sacrifice category. Sometimes that happens.
WHAT WORKS FOR ME:
Allowing myself the space and time to get back into my writing after a horribly long break like this - without guilt. Do I feel crappy about the fact that I should have had a revision to my CPs by the end of September but I've barely started on it? Yep, but I have to let it go. I've got to set that aside and just get to work.
WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN UP TO:
I don't even know where to begin... but I'll start with some very positive changes at work, which has been very, very busy. Allergy appointments for my son, who I suspect is allergic to wheat. We'll know for sure in a few more days. An Oktoberfest-themed birthday party for my husband, nephew, and brand new great-nephew, who was born on September 22nd and is super cute and snuggly. A trip to La Crosse for Oktoberfest. A highlight of the fall so far: seeing GONE WITH THE WIND on the big screen with high school friends.
And preparing for next week's highly anticipated North Shore Writing Retreat with six other YA/MG/NF authors. More details and photos next week from the shore of Lake Superior!
I'm looking forward to making the rounds! What's up with you?
