The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Basically it’s a chance to talk about the books you bought, borrowed, blogged about, and read for the week and what’s coming in the week ahead – and then share them with a much wider blogging community. Check out the details here.
Well this has been a really hectic week for me – one which I thought I had prepared for by scheduling posts. Then I log in to my blog to discover that I forg0t to schedule Wednesday – Saturday’s posts after writing them! Bummer! So I’ll be sharing what I had planned those days in the upcoming week instead.
The week started with a major bit of inspiration to write. I’ve been working on an Urban Fantasy novel since November (NaNoWriMo) and though I’ve known my story essentially this whole time, Sunday it just all fell in place. There were even a few surprises in the plot for me, but I wrote like a madwoman Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. I finished the first draft of my book – which I believe will be called Sweeter Than Death Tuesday and made a few edits before sending it out Wednesday morning to my first two beta readers. I’m only sending to a couple at this stage because I want to get some of the major edits out of the way before sharing with very many. As you can imagine, I’m beyond thrilled to have reached this point and I’m looking forward to editing.
I also took the train to St. Louis this week – left on Wednesday and arrived bright and early Thursday morning. And I swear – I haven’t had a minute since I got off that train until now! The Fellowship group I belong to went on a camping retreat(got home late last night) and I had a blast. It was luxury camping in that I had a bed inside a yurt (a Turkish style cabin, designed in a circle so that no one is in the corner). We climbed a Rockwall, did a ropes course, went canoeing, had a bonfire with s’mores :), tie-dyed shirts, and other arts and crafts, not to mention the many teambuilding games. Oh and there were like two plugs in the whole place, forcing us all to go tech free. That alone was an adventure. I had a good time, but I’m very exhausted. Today I keep trying to be productive and failing. So I give up!! I hop on the train tomorrow at 8pm and head for home! It’ll be good to be back!
Anyway – I hope everyone had a great week and that all you mom’s out there are having a fantabulous Mother’s Day!
