I've been having major issues with Blogger. I can't leave a comment on my own blog. I couldn't even leave comments on other blogger sites for a while also - and I read some awesome posts that I wanted to comment on. No fair. **slams fist on computer desk (ouch)** I've been trying to wait until it's fixed to post. But it's taking forever. Seriously!!!!
Anyway, I've been editing my WIP, The Chloe Chronicles and reading (of course). I am so thrilled with the revisions I could kiss the computer. Chloe is coming to life before my eyes and I'm loving it. Developing my characters personality was very important to me and has been a major focus of my revisions. My main character, Chloe, is the coolest 16 year old I know!!!!
I just finished reading, If I Stay by Gayle Forman and can't wait to read the sequel, Where She Went. It was a great book!!!! It was moving, romantic, and poetic. After I read the sequel I'm going to read, Delirium by Lauren Oliver. Can't wait to tear into it.
Yesterday evening my youngest daughter and I sat down to watch E.T. together - just the two of us. In the end, she was curled up on my lap watching it. During the credits, she looked up at me and said, "Mom, I know this movie is fake." I smiled. Oh, I think, my baby is really growing up. She is 8 after all, I remind myself. Then she looks at me and says, "Yeah, Mom, because I know that aliens don't really dress up like girls and talk." My baby is back!
Have a great day!!! Read a book and laugh.
