Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful mothers out there.
This weekend, my sister and I took Mother Superior to Seattle to honor her for all that she does for us. After such a busy April with writing, May has taken a different turn. I’ve had a lovely reminder that taking time away from the organized chaos is an essential way to recharge and refuel the muse.
My work for HAMELIN continues. Worldbuilding and character development have kept me on my toes in between writing new scenes for this first in a series of twisted fairytales. I haven’t written as much as I’d like, but switching gears is helping rest my frenzied brain rather than burn out my creativity.
I need to catch up in my workshops, as well. I’ve decided to forego any future enrolments until I’m all caught up or at least reviewed the downloaded lessons of workshops wherein I wasn’t able to participate.
I loved THE FALSE PRINCE by Jennifer A. Nielsen. I’ll get into more detail in tomorrow’s #middlegrademay check-in post. I have a couple new books I’ve started but want to read a few more chapters each before bringing them into the check-ins. I’d forgotten how much I relished the immersion into a new world. I’m grateful that this reading challenge allows me to keep with my goals and enjoy the love of books.
Because I was out of town, I only had time to post my nominations for the Liebster Award and the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. Now that I’m back-ish, I’ll inform the awesome people of their awards this coming week.
How’s everyone else doing as we reach the halfway point in May?
