WHAT I'M READING
I was reading A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray (have you seen it's cover? Stunning!) but then my copy of I Was Here by Gayle Forman arrived at my doorstep. So now I'm switching between the two. Gayle Forman has a writing style that I just can't get enough of. If only I could write characters a fraction as good as hers!
My kid's and I are on day 25 of our 100 day reading streak. We are about to finish up The Water Horse by Dick King-Smith. I'm having trouble finding it each morning (we read at breakfast) because my three year old loves it's "dinosaur" cover so much. It is often tucked in the covers of his bed.
WHAT I'M WRITING (+ WRITING GOAL)
I'm about half way through the deep POV class I'm taking online so everything I've written for the past few weeks has been for that. It's been amazing getting feedback and learning to analyze other peoples work so that I can give insightful feedback as well.
My goal this week is to carve out more time for my homework so that I can really dig into it and get the most from the lessons.
WHAT WORKS FOR ME
The structure of the class has been very motivating to me. I've been writing daily and actually sharing my work, which is hard for me. I need to figure out how to keep this momentum when the class is over.
WHAT ELSE IS NEW
I recently discovered London Fog (Earl Grey Latte). It is SO good. I've always loved Earl Grey but this is sublime. I still need to perfect making them. Mine aren't as good as the ones from the coffee shop. I want to get some lavender to add in with the vanilla.
