BIAM

I am joining Tristi Pinkston for her book in a month challenge. We started today, and I am a little behind already. I am working on a book that I outlined last spring. The first chapter is already written, but it took me longer to get back into the story than I thought it would. I spent a lot of my writing time reading over the outline and the first chapter, trying to get a feel for the story again. The interest is still there and it is a story I want to tell. Tonight I got in 350 words. Since the laundry is now done, family home evening has been held for the week, and I have refreshed my memory of where the story is going, the rest of the week should go a little better.

I did get the list of eligible books for the Whitney Awards updated today. There are 67 books on the list and I am sure there are more out to be added. There is a link on the sidebar that takes you right to the list. I hope everyone is doing a little extra reading and then nominating their favorite books. I am impressed with the variety out there, and wish I had the time to read them all.

I think you're insane! But I'm write -I mean right- with ya on Tristi's challenge. So I guess that makes me insane too. Good luck Stephanie. I look forward to reading of your progress. {between my hours of writing!}

350 is about 348 more words than I managed my first day. I'm having a tough time getting life to give me a little leeway here. Way to go on getting into the book! I'll try to catch up...

Sometimes I wish I could put a freeze on life for an hour or two, write, and then unfreeze things and pick up where I left off.

BIAM . . . I didn't even try. I'm supposed to be finishing up a book a month ago and I still don't know how the darn things ends!!! ARGH! Good luck! And way cool that you have all the eligible books listed!

Thanks Julie. I kept looking for a list and couldn't find one. It seemed like something that was needed.
