What I’m Reading
I’m still trying to make it through my next Book Club book, COMING OF AGE IN MISSISSIPPI by Anne Moody. It’s kind of heavy material so I’m taking it a little at a time. In between, I read THE NAME OF THE STAR by Maureen Johnson and loved it so much I moved right into the second book THE MADNESS UNDERNEATH.
What I’m Writing
I spent a good chunk of the weekend revising on THE WITCH OF HIGHLAND FALLS. I got thirty pages done and it was a good time to get reimmersed in the story and fall back in love. 🙂
What works for me
Turning off everything (except music). I have no willpower when it comes to the internet but this weekend, I had to get pages revised in order to get them to my writing group in a timely manner. The rest of the family was gone for much of the day Sunday and I turned off everything except Pandora and my document. It was the most productive afternoon I’ve had in a long time.
What Else I’ve Been Up To
My daughter passed her permit test. Yikes! My husband got her out on the road (like, the real road! not just driving around an empty parking lot!) within about two days. She LOVES driving and I’m so surprised by that. I thought she’d be far more nervous. Maybe I’m nervous enough for the both of us. She has driven me to the grocery store twice. I’m not sure my nerves can take this – both riding with a new driver and the fact that my baby is growing up so fast!
Things have been busy, busy at work but I have managed to get out and enjoy some of the fall weather here in Minnesota.
