I'm training two people at the day job. They are both very nice, very talented men, but training takes A LOT of work. So I haven't had time for lunch all week. (Yes, that's right. For someone like me who loves her three square meals and a little down time to do something writerly... that's torture. haha.)
Not to mention Jen and I finished our collab project!!! Can I get a whoot, whoot?!?! Just a run through from Jen and a run through from myself and then it will be off to betaland!!
And there was Sharon's contest where a slightly older manuscript, FRACTION OF STONE, got a request for a three chapter submission. I love that story and it just felt right for this particular press. It was great to bring it back out of the vault. (Thanks Sharon and Krystal!)
I also worked on the current solo WIP, THE CRICKET PROJECT, which is getting some touch-ups after four lovely betas have done a read through.
Then there was two softball games, trivia night, hanging out with my Lil' Sister Payge and a soccer game.
So yeah, this week has been awesome. Crazy. But awesome.
And the weekend should be just as fun. Going to a wedding!!! AND have a softball tournament.
To start off the weekend, I was given The Booker award by Katie over at The Fiction Diaries (what an awesome blog name, eh?)
The rules are simple, which is good because I can't handle complicated right now...
This award is for book bloggers only. To receive this award the blog must be at least 50% about books (reading or writing is okay)
Along with receiving this award, you must also share your top five favorite books you have ever read. (More than five is okay)
You must give this award to 5-10 other lucky book blogs you adore.
Now, I am not a 'favorites' type of person so I will just list some really good books I've read recently.
1. Divergent and Insurgent by Veronica Roth (Divergent was better. There was more Four :))
2. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
3. Across the Universe and A Million Suns by Beth Revis
4. The Darkest Power Series by Kelley Armstrong
5. Pillars of the Earth and World Without End by Ken Folliet
Whew, that was tough. Now I'm supposed to pass this on to five other bloggers. Because I hate picking I will use the 'lame' method of just choosing the last five people who commented :). That way I don't feel bad and no one else should either.
