How I did on last week’s goals:
So this was the busy week I was talking about: two birthdays, Father’s Day, and our anniversary. But on top of all that, my sweet 2 1/2 year old girl fell off the arm of our couch on to the hardwood floor and FRACTURED her collarbone! :(! She is so tough, though. She was hurting, but still smiling and taking selfies at the doctor’s office:
And she even played at her big brother’s birthday party:
But then she was pitiful when she got home :(:
But at least the birthday boy and their little brother had a great time:
As for my goals–I did manage to work on my next chapter, I didn’t finish another book, but I am reading one: AN EMBER IN THE ASHES. It’s so good I can’t put it down, and I’m so relieved it’s lived up to the hype around it! I was really looking forward to this one, and it’s been amazing so far.
I squeezed in some exercising even though it is BLAZING HOT OUTSIDE–high 90s and disgustingly humid.
I finished beta reading for my friend, and it was another book I couldn’t put down–I can’t wait until it comes out!
My goal(s) for this week:
1. Write another chapter on my WIP
2. Read another book
3. Help the kids with reading
4. Exercise at least 3 days
A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revise:
I like this line because it actually made my husband laugh out loud–which is always a confidence-booster ;).
His beard looks just like you’d imagine a beard of someone who regularly participates in Confederate battle reenactments to look.
The biggest challenge I faced this week:
Family fun and my poor baby breaking her collarbone!
Something I love about my WiP:
The characters–they all have really strong voices, and they’re a lot of fun to write.
