I’m finally off on holidays! But I have a list the length of my arm of things I want to accomplish over the next two weeks, starting with finishing the first draft of MANIAC. It’s been a long haul these past few weeks and I haven’t given it the time I should have. All that is about to change. I am going to finish. I am. Expect to see me camped out on the couch with laptop and a mug of tea if you drop by. I might scoot over and let you sit down, as long as you don’t talk to me while I’m writing. I need to concentrate.
After that, I’m all about the shopping, wrapping, baking, card-writing, fa-la-la-ing, and merrymaking. I brought home all the movies I’ve been waiting to see without subjecting my poor husband to “another YA movie”: THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, IF I STAY & THE GIVER. Not Christmas-y movies exactly, but they’ll make the wrapping and baking go faster. Can’t wait.
In the meantime, I’m participating in the YA Buccaneers’ “12 Days of Books” Instagram challenge. Have you been following along? So far, we’ve done a book beard, our mug-of-the-moment, and today….a bookcase. It’s been fun, and my sister is playing along with us! I’m so happy!
Oh, and I’m making fudge. I’m not a good fudge maker, but I have a self-imposed challenge to find the perfect white chocolate/vanilla fudge recipe for my husband. So far, I’ve made a pan of goop. I’ll keep you posted.
