Sunday Post 12

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): Um, apparently was busy this week? I honestly don’t know where it went, but I only got one post up and I only managed one day of serious writing. I was also doing some (more) editing of my MG, but somehow I felt like the week mostly slipped away from me. I need to get back to my checklist! The beginning of the week was crazy with 80+ degree temps and then it shot down to the 40s. Chicago weather is insane! I helped my husband haul debris from our backyard to our dumpster on Monday—so I guess that explains… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): The most exciting thing that happened this week was that I got to go to the Epic Reads tour (click the link to read my recap). Other than that, I’ve just been working on feedback for a critique partner and trying to catch up with things, since it feels like I’m perpetually behind. I’m just now reading the August wrap-ups (and checking out the September ones along with them). And I’m really behind on the discussions too. I probably need to let a few things go, but I … just … can’t … seem … to … do … it… Read more »

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): My middle daughter headed to her first homecoming dance last night (with a group of friends—I haven’t had to deal with dating yet. 🙂 ) It was fun to go buy her a dress (especially since we got the perfect one on clearance for a ridiculous price) and to help her get ready. Plus, yesterday was my mom’s 70th birthday and she retired on Friday! Several of you fellow bloggers know my mom, so you know how awesome she is (it’s okay if you like her more than me—I get it 🙂 ). Now that she’s retired, she’ll have… Read more »

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): We’ve spent this weekend doing a little demolition. We’re taking out the pool that’s been in our backyard since we moved in 13 years ago and most of the deck (except for a bit of the framing) along with it. As of me writing this, we now step out our back door to a half-torn out deck that leads to a giant hole in the ground (and a whole lot of debris). Sounds fun, right? Actually, the process hasn’t been all that bad. And I trust my husband to make us a spiffy new deck.  🙂  (We’re hiring landscapers… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): This week was busy because my husband was in Ireland for work, and I had kid appointments on Thursday and Friday. But I still feel like I got a lot done Monday through Wednesday. Now I just need to keep up that momentum. Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post: A Spoiler-Filled Discussion of Two Dark Reigns Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu: A Classroom Reading Review Book Blogger Birthdays and Blogoversaries: Here are the birthdays and blogoversaries for this week! I hope you’ll go wish these bloggers well on their special days!

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): Yesterday I went to a presentation by Allie Pleiter at my local library. Allie has written over 40 books and she has come up with her own writing time management method called The Chunky Method. I’m actually really excited about it because it seems to me like it might help me with solid daily goals (like I have during NaNo) that are tailored to my own writing process. I don’t do well without solid goals, so I’m going to give this method a try and see if it helps me as much as I think it will. Also yesterday, my… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): Not much to say this week, since I just posted my August wrap-up and told you pretty much everything going on in that. So let’s just move on, shall we? Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post: Where to Find Book Series Recaps. (Since most books don’t have a synopsis.) Let’s Discuss. – Where I talk about a tweet that went mini-viral.  🙂 August Wrap-Up Round-Up Link-Up & Make Me Read It Giveaway – I combined the link-up and giveaway this month—s0 much simpler!

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): It’s official. All three of my kids have started school as of Wednesday. I still have to do a bit of driving around, but I have a whole lot more free time now. Now I just have to make sure I’m utilizing it in the best ways possible. Because, no surprise, even now I still feel like my time is too limited. There just aren’t enough hours in the day! I’ve been preparing for #PitchWars. I know getting in is a long shot, but it never hurts to try. If I don’t get that, I’ll send out to another… Read more »

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): This week was hectic because of all the back-to-school stuff going on. My daughter Danielle started high school this week. Public school will definitely take some getting used to, and we’ve had some bumps along the road, but I think she’s enjoying it for the most part. She joined the swim team, and she’s making friends, which is a huge win as far as I’m concerned (she sometimes has a hard time jumping into social situations when a lot of people are involved—and public high school is nothing if it’s not BIG!). I discovered the musical Dear Evan Hansen… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): I can’t believe that summer’s almost over! I’m both excited and terrified to have more time on my hands once school starts. Excited because … well, time!! Terrified because it means I’ll have no excuses for not making some real progress on my writing goals. LOL! This week I participated in the Make Me Read It Readathon. I can’t say that I spent a lot of extra time reading, unfortunately, but I did read The Book Thief, started reading Strange the Dreamer, and started listening to Warcross. I guess that’s not so bad. Those were all books that have… Read more »
