I've been away for awhile but it's time for What's Up Wednesday!
What I'm Reading
Since August I have been focusing on piecing together my own homeschool curriculum and it has taken me this long to get back to my normal multiple book at a time reading habit. I'm happy to report that I am reading Bird By Bird byAnne Lamott, Great Expectations by Charles Dickens and I'm previewing The Ninja Librarians by Jen Swann Downey to see if it's something my seven year old bookworm would like.
None of those books were what I was in the mood for at 3 a.m. when my toddler woke me up and I couldn't go back to sleep, so I did the logical thing and added another book to the pile. I'm now reading The Faerie Prince (Creepy Hollow #2) by Rachel Morgan. I have a feeling that it might be the first of all of these titles to be finished...
Oh and this section wouldn't be complete without adding that I have been reading The Gingerbread Man on a constant loop to my youngest son. He doesn't usually sit still for a book so I can't resist him when he plops in my lap and begs me to read. Even if it's the same story. Again. I'm getting very good at giving the Gingerbread boy a hearty southern drawl.
What I'm Writing
Um... I sorta froze. I'm suppose to be revising/rewriting Mirrors and Ice but I sunk into a mire and spent some time feeling like a fraud, poser, fake, anything but a writer. I started back at it yesterday so hopefully I can stay on track.
What Inspires Me Right Now
I'm very inspired that my youngest is finally letting me read to him!!! I've been trying for three years!
What Else I've Been Up ToI don't know. Folding socks? I sure that I do something because I seem to keep busy but somehow none of it feels worthy of writing about. Oh, I've been avoiding bears. Does that count? I had to slow down for one the other day while he lumbered across the road and I chased a baby one out of my garbage can. I'm convinced that one was watching from a tree the other night when I was out for a walk. I can't imagine a raccoon being heavy enough to make a branch creak like that.
