I moved!

Hello hello!
We had a CrAzY summer! We closed on our new house at the beginning of this month so it's been nonstop moving and unpacking for the last few weeks. Today was the first day that I didn't have to call an appliance repair man (our stove blew up), or an electrician (there were exposed wires in our laundry room) or Westar Electric company (one of the many trees in our backyard has several branches pressing down on the electric lines).
I didn't have to make any trips to the hardware store to buy new wires, receptacles or wood for our fence today either!
Nope, today was a day spent knitting, writing, and exploring our new town! Blondie #3 and I went and had lunch at the local coffee shop then we tried to go to an antique store but they were closed on Mondays (another thing we are getting used to is how early everything closes in a small town!) so we went to the zoo instead.
School is in full swing for Blondie #1 and #2--they both love it of course since they are nerds like their mama and though Blondie #3 will be staying home with me this year I'm hoping I'll be able to finish up my current WIPs before the end of the year now that we are settled in our new house and I can spend more time writing.

The Bright Effect will be first. Autumn and I are about half way through writing it which considering how little writing time I had this summer is an achievement in itself! Now that I can write more we're hoping to finish it quickly.

Then of course I'll be finishing up Nightingale. I'll have a cover reveal very very soon (I've seen the mock up!)

Until next time (which knowing me will be a month from now! LOL)!

XOXO

New Job

In February I was offered a position at the local high school working with Seniors who are at risk for not graduating on time. It's only a part time job which I thought was perfect because I'd still have time to write during the day.

Well, it's true, I still have had time to write but it's been at a much slower pace. Which is fine. I had decided this year to focus on balancing things in my life better, and well, not staying up until 3 in the morning writing every night seemed like a pretty good place to start.

And it's been GREAT!

I love working with the students. I was kind of surprised that I love it as much as I do. I always figured I'd be more of an early childhood or elementary kind of person but nope, this is the population I was meant to work with.

Which I guess sort of makes sense--I do WRITE Young Adult stories after all. :)

Here's the thing, most of these students haven't had the best support systems in their lives. Not all of them, but I'd…
