Sunday Post 35

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): Well, this is the scene out my back door right now: I know April showers bring May flowers, but I’m a little unclear on what April snowstorms bring. Lots of annoyed people? It’s supposed to be 50 degrees tomorrow, so I guess it will all melt, but still… I’m about done with this crazy weather. Nothing else too new. My daughter Danielle had a couple of track meets and got a new PR for high jump (4’6″). She was excited about that, of course. And then Friday night Danielle, my mom and I went to see a play at… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): I’m not even sure what happened this week. It just … went. Okay, now that I think about it, I can think of a few things. I had a dinner at my church where they announced some changes to the kids’ ministry program (I’ll now be teaching kindergartners through 2nd graders instead of just K-1. Doesn’t bother me, because it just means I get to hang onto my kids a year longer. :-)) And my daughter had her first outdoor track meet–luckily the weather was cooperative. I also went to an author meet-up at my local library yesterday. So,… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): This work I’ve mostly been working on editing Convenerimus to get it ready for submission. I have a CP I’ve been working with since just before I submitted to my agent, but I hadn’t incorporated any edits based on her notes because I wasn’t sure how this process was going to work. My agent gave me permission to go ahead and put those edits in before we go on submission. Of course, there’s no such thing as perfection, but it’s nice to go through one more time and do a bit more work on it before that next step.  🙂… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): I’ve been working on my new MG manuscript. Slowly but surely.  🙂  I’m finding with verse I can’t get anything close to the number of words written in a sitting as I can when I write prose. But I’m working … Next week (or, I guess, this week) is my kids’ spring break. We don’t have anything exciting planned, but we’ll have a relaxing week at home. Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post: Always lots of posts at the end/beginning of the month!

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 MG bookcase is coming along very nicely. I still have some random books on the bottom shelf (and some adult classics on top, which will probably stay there), and I still have some more MG books floating around the house, but I’m pretty happy with the way this bookcase is turning out. Take a look: More track meets this week. My daughter Danielle managed to get her PR in high jump at 4’5″ on Thursday. I’m kind of in awe of her–not because she’s a top athlete necessarily (she placed 5th at our conference meet for JV)–but because… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): Nothing new to say this week. I’ve still been working on organizing my MG bookshelf, but I don’t have a new pic yet. Spent lots of time at track meets this past week. And on doing homework with the kiddos. It’s been rainy here, but I’ll take that over snow!! Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post: Always lots of posts at the end/beginning of the month!

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): Not much new to tell you this week. I think I’m all out of interesting news for now. (If by some chance, you’ve been away and haven’t seen the exciting news I’ve been shouting about, check it out.)  🙂 I have been working on reorganizing my bookshelves now that I’ve gotten rid of a lot of homeschooling books. I’m working on gathering up all my MG books so they’ll be together (right now they’re all spread out and/or in my kids’ rooms). For now, I have them with my classics. Here’s where I’m at so far: Here’s what you… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): Okay, guys, welcome to the rollercoaster that is a writer’s life … I am. this. close. to announcing that thing that I thought wasn’t happening. It’s practically a done deal now. But it’s not actually a done deal, so I can’t say anything else. Lots of stuff going on for my kids this week—like meetings for my middle daughter’s Costa Rica trip (she’s going with school at the beginning of summer) and doing an observation at the school that my son is going to go to next year. (Since it’s not the school he’d be automatically enrolled in based on our address, but… 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): Well, I’m starting to lose hope about that possible good news on the writing front. I don’t really have anything new to report, and that in itself makes me think that it’s not going to happen. Maybe someday I’ll be able to share the story in hindsight. Right now I’m just trying not to let disappointment win out over the positives in the situation. 🙁 Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post: Bookworm Confession: Swag Isn’t My Thing.

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): I had two different writer groups this week (one for SCBWI and one at my local library) and now this weekend I’ve been participating in WriteOnCon, which is an online kidlit (YA and under) writing conference. I’m in awe at the pure amount of content in this conference. If you’re a writer or interested in writing, you should definitely check it out because it’s super reasonably priced and you can access all of the sessions for the next week. I spent almost all day Friday on the site, and every spare minute yesterday on it and I’ve found so many… Read more »
