Happy Friday!

Happy Friday

  • I received an email from someone saying they loved my books. I am always so grateful knowing people take a chance on my stories and this email made me smile oh so much!
  • Teaching German again.
  • Coming home super tired and cuddling with Plato The Dog and Peter The Cat and then watching Jane The Virgin with the hubby.
  • This tweet 🙂

  • Participating in #AuthorLifeMonth (brainchild of Dahlia Adler) on Instagram and sharing this quote from LOVE IN B MINOR (available for pre-order now for only $0.99) There are so many authors participating in this Instagram challenge, so much talent, it’s incredible! I’m looking forward to catching up on other people’s pictures this weekend.

So tell me, what made you smile this week?

What I’m reading

I am almost done reading MORE THAN COMICS by Elizabeth Briggs and I don’t want it to end. LOVING IT!
MORE THAN COMICS
And I’m reading an awesome manuscript by a wonderful & lovely writer and friend. The type of writing that makes you pause and think “Wow.”
Yep, I’m lucky..

What else I´ve been up to

  • Taking lots of pictures of Plato The Dog and Peter The Cat 🙂 and posting lots of them on Instagram 🙂

  • Walking. A. Lot. Since the fence is still being put up, I take Plato on several walks a day.
  • Taxes, paperwork, trying to organize myself…

What works for me

Critiquing or beta reading. Right now, as mentioned, I’m reading an amazing manuscript and I’m both inspired by the writing (it is gorgeous) and having my brain going into “critique” mode. It helps my own writing I think, especially when comes the time to do a read-through of my own manuscript.

I can’t wait to check all your posts and see what you’ve been up to 🙂

  • Using my new planner. During our writing retreat, we started talking about planners, especially Erin Condren’s planners and I received mine last week. LOVE IT!

What works for me

Each night, I try to write 3 things I’m grateful for in my planner. It’s a way to help focus on the positive and I find that it works for me.

I’m scaring myself (and doing research at the same time for my NA thrillers) by reading
And I am in the middle of  THROUGH THE EVER NIGHT by Veronica Rossi

What else I´ve been up to

  •  Preparing for the arrival of our dog…we’re now only waiting to hear when we can go and pick him up.
  • 10937362_10103379857255818_221378814_nRe-watching Friends thanks to Netflix.

What works for me

Trying to get into a schedule…I was oh so productive when I had basically no time and there are two things I noticed that I no longer have a day job.

  1. There are a LOT of things to do inside the house, a LOT and those things take time.
  2. I need to have a schedule to somewhat stick to. It helps me to achieve some of my daily goals.
