Postings are choppy and very random this month because I need to stay focused! =)
WIP: Work In Progress
Otherwise known as NaNoWriMo. I'm doing ok with my word count, I think. I'm at 18,760 words when I stopped last night. I wasn't able to write this past weekend and won't be able to write this weekend either, or the following...so, early mornings and late nights for me to push this through. But, so far all is good. Coffee is my best friend right now. At the end I'll post what I've learned during my first NaNo experience.
PiBoIdMo is going ok, too. I'm at 12 ideas and it is day 10, so I'm hanging in there. But, again, this is harder than it sounds. I'm still so thankful for the daily prompts from other authors that is blogged about.
QBR: Quick Book Reviews
1. Moxy Maxwell Does Not Love Stuart Little by Peggy Gifford
Who does not love Stuart Little? I had to find out why Moxy didn't like him. He'd been with her all summer - she was suppose to read the book over the summer. But, isn't there always some distraction for anything you have to do? (like NaNo?) Same for Moxy..fun, easy upper elementary read.
2. Bud, Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis
This book made me laugh out loud in the hospital lobby. To read more about it click here.
TGC: Tips, Giveaways, and Contests
Tip: Comes from my 9 year old. The Son tells me the best way to up my word count is to write "do not" instead of "don't"...smart little cookie, ya think? Bless his teacher's heart. HA!
I don't really have any contests or giveaways to report this week. I did win one though. I will be receiving Audra Harders' book Rocky Mountain Hero when it comes out in January. This contest comes from Seekersville...thanks so much!
Btw, Mom, I'll let you read it first if you want before you mail it here. ;)
