The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news ~ A post to recap the past week on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead.
This past week on FYFA (and in my life):
- Writing. I decided not to do NaNo at all because I’ve been getting feedback from my critique partners. So I took a bit of a week off of writing this week and next week I’m jumping into my final round of revisions.
- Blogging. Look at me, actually blogging, replying to comments, commenting back, etc. Plus, I have posts already scheduled for this coming week. When I start my revisions, it will be a little harder, but hopefully I won’t get too far behind again.
- What I Read:
- I read Rewritten by Tara Gilboy, Unsettled by Reem Faruqi, and Cupcake by Cookie O’Gorman.
- I continued listening to The Only Plane in the Sky: An Oral History of September 11, 2001 by Garrett M. Graff.
- What I Watched:
- I just finished season 3 of The Amazing Race. I’ve almost made it all the way back to the beginning.
- And then my son got me to start watching season 11 of Married at First Sight. (He loves this show – I’m not sure what this says about me as a mom. LOL!)
Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post:
