Monday... Christmas music? Really?!

Christmas musicIt's Monday!! What are you reading this close to Christmas?

How many of you are listening to Christmas music already?  Come on... 'fess up!!

This is the year to get an early jumpstart on Christmas. I have creative plans to add something homemade to gifts this year. At my pace, I should be planning on Christmas 2013, but... I'm in denial.  I still think I can make something in time for this Christmas!!

Are you making plans already? Any hints?

Hey... how's that NaNoWriMo going?  Allow me to jus' lay down and roll with laughter over this one. I still think I can catch up. I've gotten to 7,231 words but things are getting rather dry. *sips tea* My personal goal? I want to work my way through my Grand Finale, another 10,000 words, or so, which will put me at 35,000 total for my story. Perfect for a first draft. For me. 'Cause if I know me... I need to keep myself to as short as possible before it gets away from me. Lol.

Oh, it will get away from me.

What are you reading, though, for real?

Thx, Sheila @ Book Journey for asking the great question!!

I'm in the middle of a few at the moment.

Evie's KnightI picked up Evie's Knight 'cause I'm planning my first EVER Prism Book Tours book tour... and it's getting really exciting. We're going to have an awesome giveaway for the tour, thx to Kimberly Krey, plus tons of super-fun posts. This book has so much... great kissing. I did not expect that!!  Lol.

We'll be looking for book reviewers... anyone?

The Escape of Princess Made...I'm also reading The Escape of Princess Madeline, which is mega-cute.

ScarletteAnd to balance out the excessive cuteness, I picked up Scarlette - a thrilling retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. I'm only a few pages in and I'm nervous for the life of every character I've met so far. There's blood on the horizon. Muahahahaha...

These have not kept me from writing my book. No... that was all me. Sometimes the words do not fly off the page. Sometimes they stubbornly hang onto their slimy rocks and refuse to budge. Gail Carson Levine said that... that she scrapes words off the slimy walls they originate from and the dark, dank picture has always stuck with me. I didn't believe her until this past week, but now I'm wishing she hadn't been so clear in her description, 'cause they're glaring at me. (The words are. As they hunch there, unbudgingly.)

Thanks for stopping by!!  I can't wait to visit you back!  :-D


  1. Scarlette looks good. I hate Christmas music before December. I'm not a huge fan of it in December but at least that is the proper time. I'm such a Scrooge! LOL.

  2. Somehow I completely missed the month of writing challenge this year! Oh well. The truth is that I always sign up and then never write more than a page or two. Next year. For sure.

    Here's my It's Monday! What Are You Reading?! I hope you will stop by!

  3. I don't do Christmas until the day after Thanksgiving.

    Hope your writing picks up. =)

  4. No Christmas tunes or decorations for this girl until after Thanksgiving ;) One holiday at a time!

    Good luck with NaNo and enjoy your reads :)

  5. Christmas music before Thanksgiving? Not so much. The day after? Absolutely! I checked out some of your writing (because somehow I missed the fact that you write) and I absolutely loved your short story! It was beautiful. I never could master the whole SHORT part of the short story thing, so I've just stuck with long ones instead. Can't wait for the book tour! :)

  6. Wow! A lot on your plate. No Christmas music here yet, still the Disney movie tunes. :)

  7. oh my gosh! I started listening to Christmas music back in October!!!
