Beautiful colors....sea-inspired stamps....
Here's a little taste of how my weekend will be spent. The deadline for the fundraising mural at my children's school was Friday. The Brandon School community really pulled together and supported this project which will (eventually) beautify the school and add much needed funds to support our specialists program.
But as a result, I have over 50 tiles to stamp, paint and personalize before Monday. Eeek!
But this hasn't stopped me from reading. I just read The Host by Stephenie Meyer. Not so great. Cool concept--aliens taking over human bodies--but unfortunately, Meyer didn't pull it off. Too bad.
So to rejuvenate my "must-read" stack, I popped down to my local bookstore and picked up a copy of Evolution, Me and Other Freaks of Nature by Robin Brande. Check out the author interview by Hip Writer Mama. Can't wait to dive in and read this well received novel.
Now an update on my Summer Writing Program. Spent three mornings working on my YA. Got in about 9 hours. Yeah! Worked on the sequencing of some chapters, spent some time working through the Goal/Motivation/Conflict for my protagonist (based on my critique groups recommendations...they rock!) and basically just wrote. So fun.
