“What’s Up Wednesday” is a weekly meme started by Jaime Morrow and Erin Funk. From Jaime: It’s similar in some respects to the Currently… post, but it’s been whittled down to only four headings to make it quicker and more manageable on a weekly basis. You’re invited to join us if you’re looking for something to blog about, a way to let your blog friends know what’s been going on with you. If you’re participating, make sure to link your What’s Up Wednesday posts to the list on Jaime’s blog each week. That way, others can visit your post and check out what you’ve been up to.
What I'm Reading:
TRUMPET OF THE SWAN is another book from my childhood that I remember loving, but not much beyond that. We're listening to it now in the car and the kiddos are really getting into it.
SKY JUMPERS by Peggy Eggleman. I met her at LDStorymakers and she was nice and smart and funny, just like her debut. It took me to the second chapter to be hooked, but now I'm flying through the story of Hope, her little inventing town, the Bomb's Breath, and bandits. I'm giving it to my kiddos as soon as I'm finished so they can revel in the intricate world building, characters I feel for, and spot on humor.
What I'm Writing:
I'm working on a second draft of my MG novel. I've done the read through, I know (some of) what I have to do, but it's not as easy as I want it to be. I'm finding too many excuses to NOT write this week. Pledging now to do better. I'm supposed to have this revision done this month and beta ready, so I need to get cracking.
What Else I've Been Up To:
Three kid birthdays in one week. Who would have thought you could be tired of cake? I'm living proof it's possible.
|10 yo. No, he's not shy. He simply |
doesn't like the camera flash.
|My silly 6yo Cowgirl|
|We had fancy cupcakes for lunch, but she|
wanted to decorate her own cake:)
|My beautiful 8yo before her baptism. She's wearing the same dress I was baptized in when I was eight. *so special*|
What Inspires Me Right Now:
- Having to take the flashlight away from my 10yo at 11 pm so he'll finally stop reading and go to sleep.
- All the new cover beauty I'm seeing all of over the internet. Three of my favorites here, here, and here.
- Beta readers with spot on feedback
- Spoilery kissy scenes from my CPs
- General Conference
What are you guys up to on this lovely Wednesday?
