Wow. I’m not going to apologize straight up for deserting the blog for a few months. Life happens. Connie was pretty clear that her accelerated nursing school program is so intense that she wouldn’t be around until her next break. She has no time to read. I, on the other hand, do have time to read. So what on earth have I been doing?
Let me tell you a little about myself. I tend to pour myself into things. I spend hours on one thing a time. What this means is when I have photography sessions, I ignore everything else until that session is done. Except my kids. Probably. Sometimes. This month I have been participating in NaNoWriMo. Not only did I write a novel (while I’m still working on the last few thousand words to hit 50,000…..I had to start on the next in the series because I finished the first draft of book one), I wrote another half of a novel at the same time, and mapped out another series. When my brain turns on, it can’t be stopped. I have to wring out all the creative juices possible to get everything I can because I know that after an insane amount of awesome pouring out, I always have a dry spell. My dry spell actually started last week, right around Thanksgiving, and coincided with a lot of sickness and my little brother getting hospitalized after Thanksgiving dinner when his bowels shut down. No lie. Can’t make this stuff up.
In October, I was in the ultimate dry spell. Nothing happened for me. I couldn’t bring myself to get on here and write crappy reviews for all of the great books I’ve been reading. I can’t stand to do half of anything. But now I feel like I owe it to our followers to put stuff out there. So I am committing myself to doing that. For you guys. Aw.
Here’s what I’m planning on reading in December:
Reached by Ally Condie
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Across the Universe by Beth Revis
The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
The Selection by Kiera Cass
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
