It's time for What's Up Wednesday!
WHAT I'M READING
Thanks to the YA Superlatives Blogfest (and the library trip it inspired) I am reading about 15 books. I will have to narrow that down I think but I keep picking up different ones and next thing I know, I'm reading. I'm slowly finishing Blue Lily Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater. I always take her books slowly. The writing demands that I take the time to let it's beauty soak in. I purchased the Legend of Holly Claus by Brittany Ryan (thanks for the recommendation Erin and Jaime!) and I am going to start it as soon as school is out for the holidays. Hopefully it will help me transition from home school mode to Christmas mode.
Oh, I did finish Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas over the weekend and I read Jody Hedlund's latest, Unexpected Love.
WHAT I'M WRITING (+ ONE WRITING GOAL)
I didn't meet my goal the way I intended it to be. I wanted to write on my WIP every day, which I didn't, but I did write "something" most days. My goal this week is to write 15 minutes every morning before breakfast. Evenings aren't working as well with so many Christmas activities going on.
WHAT WORKS FOR ME
I tend to be a social writer. I love blog hops and twitter chats and find it all to be very motivation. My friend Katie Doyle and I are hosting a "live blogging" event over the New Year. Please check it out. We'd love to have you join us!
What Else I'm Up To
I'm getting ready to pack up the school lessons and bring out the baking ingredients and craft supplies. The kids have friends coming over to make Christmas decorations later this week and we have company coming on the weekend to have a Polar Express/Hot Cocoa party! I love Christmas!!!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
