It's time for What's Up Wednesday!
What I'm Reading I read Daughter of Smoke and Bone and Heist Society this week. Now I'm reading Dark Road Home by Elizabeth Ludwig. I'm getting back on track with my chapter a day classic and I've started reading Structuring Your Novel by K.M. Weiland. I've been trying to spend 15 minutes a day reading a book on writing. I'm loving this one!
What I'm Writing I wanted to revise for five hours this week and.... I totally forgot to keep track how much time I spent. I think I was a little short of my goal. I'm going to be revising "Slumber" some more this week, probably a few minutes at a time, seeing that I have company.
What Inspires Me Right Now Family! My cousin and sister flew across the country (diagonally!) to visit. Its been such a long time since I have been able to visit with them or any of my family.
What Else I've Been Up To I've been showing my family around Florida. My sister has never been to this part of the country before so its tons of fun! We spent yesterday swimming in the Gulf. I also succeeded in getting my sister hooked on the show "Once Upon a Time" so we are watching that after the kiddos are in bed. (I got my cousin hooked a long time ago...)
Today is the first homeschool event of the year. It's a pirate themed event and I'm in charge of assembling a treasure hunt. Its not just a normal treasure hunt. My clues will lead the children through a series of games that a friend is putting together, such as Swab the Deck and Cannon Ball Toss (which is basically a water fight). I am hoping that my clues "work" and that they actually find the treasure... I've never done such an elaborate treasure hunt before.
That's pretty much it!
What have you been up to???
