Okay, so life has been out of control busy (ahh). Football started back up for my son 2 weeks ago, next week he has his first game. And soccer gets under way next week as well, along with school. So things in the Purdy house will be chaotic. My days will start 5:45 am, when I get up to go to work, and I won’t see my house until 8:30 pm.
My current WIP TLOM (hehehe—yep a hidden codename—so love them), is going really well. I’m close to ½ way through writing it (the YA Fantasy/Horror). I’m hoping to squeeze in a little writing time this weekend since I’ve been limited to my lunch hours at work. I’m getting to some awesome scenes that I can’t wait to see how they play out.
OMG, and the other day on my way home from work I got these vivid images for another new story. And then a brilliant title flashed in my mind. *Gasps for air* and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about. To and from work, my mind pours over characters, plots, details. So, I ended up blurbing it. And get this, it’s another darker story (YA Horror). This coming from a girl who normally writes the light, funny, YA stories. Not sure what’s bringing on the dark, but I’m totally geeked about both stories. However, new idea won’t be touched until I finish TLOM.
Let’s see, I’m currently reading Graceling by Kristen Cashore and am TOTALLY LOVING IT. And I’ve got Bloodlines by Richelle Mead waiting in the wings (just got it this week). I keep seeing a bunch of awesome YA books I want to pick up, but will have to wait until my birthday in October (come on October, so can’t wait).
Oh and last weekend, I went to a Detroit Lions football game with my brother, dad, and nephew and had a total blast. We played the Patriots and totally spanked them (oh yeah). I didn’t have my voice for most of the week do to all the cheering/yelling etc.
I hope everyone has a FABULOUS Labor Day weekend. I’ll be spending mine school clothes shopping at the mall. The kidlets already have a list of what stores they want to visit. And I’m noticing that they’re the more expensive stores (see this is what I get with my kids getting older).
But it’s fun going with them.
