When this book, Fun Things to Do with Paper Cups and Plates by Kara L. Laughlin, came through the library where I work, I had to take a minute to thumb through the pages. The cover was too cute to let it slip through my fingers without a glance!

This week, I have been gearing up for my first giveaway: a crocheted Happy Sunflower (see this post to be entered to win)! Since the giveaway goes from now until 3/14/16, I am working on getting the sunflower made up and ready to ship. To the right is a progress pic thus far. As you can see, I’ve made the stem, back of the head and almost one whole leaf! I know it doesn’t look like much, but just you wait until next week’s progress pic!
This post was originally seen on J.A. Allen’s blog, Scribbles on Cocktail Napkins. I was given the opportunity to guest post, once again (see my post Finding Time to Write which also first appeared on her blog), for winning one of her Sunday Scribbles Challenges. These little bits of flash fiction are always a lot of fun to write, and I highly recommend taking a look and posting an entry yourself! Now, let’s get back to business…
In order to change her destiny and the barren, colorless world, ten-year-old Adeline will have to unleash the last bit of magic.
Adeline Picot, is the main protagonist from my Middle Grade Fantasy story, Adeline and the Mystic Berries.
This week I continued working on editing my book, Adeline and the Mystic Berries (see last week’s What I am Working On post for more on editing this story). I finished the in-line edits and have moved onto reorganizing and deleting chapters, and also writing new scenes as well. This part of the process will definitely be the most time consuming. It is also a lot of fun, to add more scenes in with my favorite characters (like, Aspen, seen above).
April is over and with it, the A to Z Challenge for bloggers. I posted one post every day, except for Sundays, and ended with 26 new blog posts.
Ideas running through your head at all hours of the day. Frantically searching for a pen and paper to write them down for fear they’ll be forgotten. Worrying you aren’t making enough progress on achieving your goals. Getting up an hour early just so you have that extra time to work on more stuff: social media, blog, book, and the list goes on.
