Monday Mishmash 2/25/13

Happy Monday! Here's my mishmash of thoughts:
  1. My daughter's birthday!  Tomorrow is my daughter's 6th birthday. How did that happen? She's getting so big.
  2. Scholastic Book Fair  I'm working at my daughter's school all week to help the PTO out with the book fair. I'm going to have to write like the wind in the afternoons to make up for working in the mornings.
  3. New novel idea  I woke up at 4am Sunday morning with yet another book idea. I'm currently doing edits on my MG novel and I'm drafting another YA already, too. I need to clone myself so I can get all this done.
  4. Warm Bodies  I'm dying to see this movie. I'm reading the book right now and will be reviewing it soon.
  5. Sweets Blogfest  There's still time to sign up for the Sweets Blogfest on March 6th. The rules are simple, just post the blogfest button and link to me and my co-host Beth Fred. Then write about your favorite sweet, favorite sweet couple, favorite sweet romance, or promote your own sweet romance. That's it! You can sign up below:

That's it for me. What's on your mind today?

    1. I've been sleeping more than usual lately, Jodi. I guess my body knows I'm going to need the extra rest. ;)

  3. Kids grow up so quick, my niece turns fifteen on Thursday and I still remember changing her diapers between high-school homework!

    Warm Bodies the book had me tickled, it just normalised the craziest things! I don't like gut-wrenching Zombie books, but Warm Bodies and Undead/Unfed by Kirsty McKay

    1. I'm enjoying it. It's very different from what the movie previews show though. I was surprised at first.

  4. I love your blogfest idea and would like to sign up, but I have so much writing to do to get the first draft of this sequel finished. I'll surely come by and read the entries, though.

    And Happy B-day to your little girl. They do grow fast. WAY too fast.

  5. I'm going to cry when my son turns six. And my daughter is five months! I told my son last night he's not allowed to get any older.

    2. When my daughter was 15 weeks, we made a deal that she'd stay that age and I'd stay 28. Didn't happen. ;)

    Love those new ideas when they present themselves. Now you just need extra hours in your days. :)

  10. Hope your daughter has a wonderful birthday. Have fun at the book fair, too! I used to run ours when my youngest son was in grammar school. I enjoyed myself immensely.

  11. Yeah for new ideas. I've been going back and forth on which project to work on next, but the muse finally hit this weekend. Now I'm knee deep in research, but it's so fun.

  12. I think the offsprings' birthdays mean as much or more to us mom as to the kids. Obviously, their lives started on their birthdays - but ours changed SO much.

    Happy birthday to you both, and have fun at the bookfair.

  13. Scholastic Book Fair sounds like fun!

    OT (since it's Mishmash Monday). Oscars--loved the winners and dressed. Host--boring and offensive. Running time--too long (as usual).

    1. They are. I didn't watch the Oscars. I tried but was bored.

  16. I can't keep up on edits to one book let alone a million. Good for you and your crazy energy!!

    The years pass too fast. Mine will be two soon and I can't handle that. Hope your little girl has a happy birthday!!!!

    1. Thanks, Michelle. I got a new editing client, too, so I've been editing for him all day instead of working on my own stuff. Don't tell. ;)

    1. So far the movie seems much funnier than the book.

  24. Enjoy the Book Fair, and a very Happy Birthday to your daughter. I'm sure she will have a lovely day.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Sounds like you're having a lovely time. I remember my daughter at 6, aw, cuteness and attitude all wrapped up together. I want to see Warm Bodies too - interesting slant on the zombie theme. You might also be interested in this online zombie 3 parter (not sure when it's starting) - http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00szzcm. My week is looking snarly (normal life) and interesing (writing life).

    And best of luck with the new idea. :-)

  27. Hi Kelly! By the time you get this,it will be Ayla's birthday! Hope she and you have a wonderful day. 6 - 8 were years of Hannah's life that I really enjoyed. Still the wonder of childhood without the pressures of growing up and becoming a pre-teen. You WILL post pics of the party on your FB page??? Pretty please!!

    1. Thanks, Carol. Actually, I don't post pictures of Ayla on FB. I've heard they can be traced, so I don't do it. It's a shame I have to think of things like that, but I have to protect my baby.

  28. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Author Kelly's daughter! I feel like I should be sending Ayla A.A. Milne's WHEN WE WERE SIX. A wonderful book for what goes by too fast.

    1. Thanks, Mirka. I'll have to get that book for her.

  29. I think if you "write like the wind" more than you already do, you'll turn yourself into a cyclone and fly away!! lol
    Happy B-day to your daughter and good luck with all those book ideas! :-)

  30. My son's birthday is the 26th, as well (I think we discussed that last year!). As is my grandma's. Speaking of it being a small world, my son brought home a neat packet from school that had various books and writers and writing activities based on them, and one of your books was in there! It was fun to see a familiar name in something he brought home from school.

    I posted about your blogfest on my Wed post, to go up in the AM.

    1. Yes, we have talked about this. :) And yes, I write for an educational publisher, so that was my work you saw.

      Thanks for spreading the word about the blogfest. Beth and I really appreciate it.

  31. Isn't it just typical, getting an idea at the most inconvenient hour of the day?
