Monday Mishmash 8/22/16


Happy Monday! Monday Mishmash is a weekly meme dedicated to sharing what's on your mind. Feel free to grab the button and post your own Mishmash.

Here's what's on my mind today:
  1. Drafting  I had no intentions of drafting a new book right now, but you know how it is when you get an idea. This book will be very different for me. Different POV and genre. Eek!
  2. Last Week of Summer Vacation  :( No! My baby is starting fourth grade next Monday. Say it isn't so! She got the teacher she wanted but is sad that her best friends are not in her class. I'm preparing now to hold it together next Monday morning until I'm driving away from her school after drop-off. Send tissues please.
  3. After Loving You Cover Reveal   Friday is my cover reveal. Woo-hoo! Not that I'm excited or anything. ;)
  4. My Mom's Birthday!  Thursday is my mom's birthday. She reads these posts, so feel free to wish her a great day. Love you, Mom!
  5. Reading  With my daughter home, I read a lot of middle grade books over the summer. I do have some adult suspense books waiting for me though, and I'm looking forward to diving into those soon.
That's it for me. What's on your mind today?

  1. The children grow up so fast. One day you wonder when did you get old enough to have grandchildren.

    I'm editing one novel and getting submissions ready for the SCBWI conference next month.

    It's been a busy summer.

      Good luck with your SCBWI submissions!

  2. Happy Birthday, Kelly's mom! :) Enjoy your last week with your daughter, Kelly. Summer has gone by very quickly. My youngest started his junior year in high school last Wednesday. Yikes! I'm old.

    1. No, there's not. I think it makes us better writers in the end.

  4. Next Monday will be tough for me too - third frade came way too fast!

    Happy birthday Kelly's Mom!

    I'm working on an outline here. I think I finally figured out how the story needs to work, so here goes!

    Have a great week!

  5. Happy Birthday to your mom!

    My "baby" is starting 11th grade this year, and my other daughter is off to college. I could swear they were just toddlers a minute or so ago.

  7. Big week! Yes, sometimes the ideas just grab us and won't let us go until we put them on paper.

  8. Happy birthday to your lovely mother. You have quite a week ahead of you Kelly. Enjoy and when the little goober goes try cuddling one of those adult thrillers until she comes home that first day.
