Well, it's that time of year again. That time where I'm so busy my head is spinning and I'm barely keeping up with every day things. Since I have missed a few blogs recently I thought I'd check in quickly.
I'm still busy brainstorming my rewrite on my NaNoWriMo 2011 project. Scenes are unfolding and rearranging in my head daily. I still need to get everything sorted out before I really dive in and do the major rewrite.
I've been devouring book after book since my neck has been really giving me problems as of lately. I can do things usually for the first half of the day and then my neck is usually hurting so bad I need to put some heat on it and relax. What better way to relax than to read a good book.
Writing Craft Reading:
I'm still in the midst of reading books on writing. Currently I'm reading Writing Irresitible KidLit by Mary Cole. I'd like to finish it before I get into this big rewrite. She has some really good information that I intend to use towards my rewrite.
I grew up with German grandparents who spoke German regularly. As a teenager I had my Oma begin teaching me German and then in high school I took three years of German and one year of French. I also took four semesters of German in college. Since then I have lost much of what I learned. It's hard keeping a language you no longer use. So my dad signed up for a German course through Rocket Languages and he got me a family package. So we are both working hard on getting back to where we once were. Not to mention my daughter took French this past year as a Freshman and she had issues with it. So now she and I are both doing the French course through Rocket Languages. Yes, I think I might be in over my head with this, but it's fun and I love languages.
As a result of being so busy this summer with the kids, going to Texas, my neck pains, reading, writing, and learning languages I've decided to scale back on my blogging. I have a few posts scheduled throughout the summer for book promos, but other than that I'm not sure how much I will be posting. However, I will still be posting over on Writers by the Shore every other Thursday.
Have a great summer!! :-)
