Random writing related thoughts

Kate Hart
The Monday after a holiday is always weird-- hard to think and get back in the groove of things. Here are a few things I saved up over the break:

Falling squarely in the "duh" category: How to enjoy books and crafting at the same time.

(answer: Books on tape. *facepaw*)

I couldn't find a werewolf, sorry. offers up a warning to Nano-ers that is also pertinent to me in my current in-between drafts status: BE PATIENT.
This has never been my strong suit, but I'm doing my best. I'm super excited for other kids on AW who are getting requests for fulls and agents, but I'm impatient to jump into the fray and forcing myself to be smart about it. In the immortal words of my father: "Don't do things half-assed."

I finished my 50 Book Challenge. #50 was Looking For Alaska by John Green, and it was a great one to go out on. I might go for 100 next year.

Which reminds me... anyone else doing the 101 in 1001 challenge? I started it months ago and even had a seperate blog dedicated to my goals, but they have already changed so drastically in a few short months that I need to revisit them. It's more fun to do with friends... any takers?

This is the most random picture I could find.


  1. "Don't do things half-assed."

    Pearly words of wisdom, those are. And congratulations on winning the 50 books challenge! :)

  2. You're on for the 101 in 1001! Sounds like fun!

  3. Congrats on finishing your challenge! <3 That dog pic is LOL.

  4. Sewing with a good audiobook on in the background is just about my definition of heaven! Many times I can even remember what project I was working on with which audiobook playing.
