Things That Are Awesome!


 -Fellow author (and friend) Amy Tintera debuted the cover of her YA novel REBOOT over at YA Highway last Friday and it’s all sorts of awesome! If you haven’t already, check it out. Prepare to be awed. 

-A month of paid vacation from work, which conveniently coincides with:

-NaNoWriMo! (Disclaimer: I reserve the right to boot this one over to the Things That Are NOT Awesome list anytime after November 1st.)  I’ve never done this challenge before. The timing's always been off, but things have turned out just so that I'm able to do it this year, and I’m so excited to finally be able to participate. I’ll be working on the sequel to THE WITCH HUNTER’S BIBLE, which I have a handy dandy outline made up for. I’m MichelleKrys over there (So creative!) if anyone feels like buddying me.

-The TV show Once Upon A Time.  After having finished and LOVED Season 2 of Awkward (it’s sadly done until next summer), I posed the question ‘What TV show should I become obsessed with next’ to my writing buddies. OUAT came up a few times. It did not disappoint. I’m seriously loving this show. So romantic! So fun! So whimsical! So smart! If you aren’t already watching it, you should be.

-My niece’s Halloween costume. Seriously, how wicked is this costume? She looks like the little girl from The Ring. And that movie? Creepy.

  3. OUAT is also a favorite with me. I'm glad they have Captain Hook to replace the Sheriff for 'hot guy' on the show.

    Your niece is adorable as Sally! Awesome make-up. Can't wait for YOUR cover reveal!

  10. Good luck on Nano! It's so much fun (well, when I say fun I really mean it makes you want to die all the time, but whatever). I'm adding you as a buddy, because one can never have too many internet writerly friends. I'm Hannah17 (also a very original name.)

    Just wait until you get to the Captain Hook episodes of OUAT. They'll kill you with their awesome :)

    1. Awesome, I'll add you. Hannah!

      I'm halfway through Season 1 of OUAT so I think I have a ways to go. Unless he's this motorcycle guy, who's not too bad himself :D
