Okay, so I am totally in summer mode: I forgot about my blog this week! Actually, I’ve been doing a lot of writing and got caught up in my current WIP. Such a great feeling. 🙂 I’ve been carting my laptop or my AlphaSmart to the barn each day. While my daughter works out with Curious George, I write.
Most of the time. Except when the other horses are calling me from the pasture to come over and pet them or give them a treat. Or, when the barn cat isn’t demanding I pet her. Or, when the rooster isn’t crowing and making me think of heading off to the nearest fried chicken place for a snack. Yep, I’m being productive. At the rate I’m going, I’ll be finished by the time school starts again. (Notice I didn’t say which year.)
It’s been a little easier to write this one out of the office. That’s probably because when I’m working outside the house, I don’t have the stack of books in the corner of the room calling to me each time I sit down at my desk. Actually my “to be read” pile is more like a tower than a stack and, right now, it’s roaring at me to open a book. If there was a chance of chocolate hidden in that pile, I’d be sorely tempted.
Kristin Higgin’s new book, Somebody to Love, is sitting smugly next to the stack because, I must confess, I deviated from my work to sneak that one in. Hey, she sent me an autographed copy of her previous book so I felt compelled to read this one right away. So glad I did!
Congratulations to Kristin, by the way, for making the RWA Hall of Fame with this book. To Jill Shalvis, too, whose latest Lucky Harbor release put her in the Hall of Fame also. Another, waiting to be read.
Then there are those wonderful historical books I love to read by the pool. Sarah Mclean’s A Rogue By Any Other Name and Julie Anne Long’s How the Marquess Was Won keep staring me down. Seriously, I am actually hoping for a little writer’s block to get one of them read.
So what’s on your “to be read list”? See if you can tempt me!
