Spring Break...work?!


So, I was supposed to update you yesterday on my goals. I can tell you that I'm totally progressing on the Cutlass edits! :D I'm so excited! For once, I feel like everything is smoothly coming together and I like it. haha. As for blogging/going to more blogs..well, that's difficult for me. First, because I'm getting to the busiest part of school which is April--AND I'm doing that whole A-Z posting and each one is dedicated to my characters in some way or another and that's going to be tough, but I'll get through it!

I no longer have free weekends. I work Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Lowes. My position should be "Jack of all Trades" or something more fantasy-like...hmm...I'll get back to you on that one.

I read this book in a day:

http://www.juliekagawa.com/books.html 
These were very good! It was so torturous wanting to read this book an knowing I have to read another for class so that I can write a paper. So, I'm holding off on the second book which looks like this:

Must. Write. Paper.

What these books made me realize once again--I LOVE being transported to another world. You might think I'm bored with real life or something, but when I read, I do not want to be in this world (for very long, anyways, lol). GIVE ME ANOTHER WORLD!

hehe.

Okay, I have lots to do:
Read Waverly
Write a paper over Waverly
Write a poem
2 Response papers


Blah. Glad it's Spring Break! I'm going to back edits for a little while, though.
