My Summer Thus Far

My summers are usually pretty nonproductive, and this one is no exception. I did an eighth draft of Happy Kid! in June. I've been slowly working on a mailing to schools in Connecticut. I've been trying to do a little self-study on writing short stories. All of which I've mentioned. I've done little real writing this past month, though, slowly, slowly, I came up with a new point of view and twist to the book for the lower grades that I've been talking about for a couple of years.

Things are just coming around with that, I'm just getting to the point where maybe I can start working on it for real. So, of course, I've heard from my editor. I'll be getting feedback on Happy Kid! next week, which means all other work will stop while I go back to that. That always, always happens.

Actually, for me that is quite a productive summer.

What's more, I've been asked to speak at a teachers' conference next winter! My first one. I've said yes. Unfortunately, I don't know what teachers' conference I've agreed to speak for because my contact has always used an acronym. When I've figured out what it means, I'll get back to you.

And I am reading a YA book that I'm really liking. When I've finished it and done some research on the book, I'll get back to you on that, too.

I knew the dofus kamas so I always try my best to earn them more and more to make myself strong. I have never played the game before, at the beginning I did not know what is so I went to kill the monsters with the kamas that I earned with myself in the game. I will duty bound to a friend to help brush the dofus gold together with my friends. I spend a good relationship is then fly to tears. If my levels are very high, I can go to buy dofus kamas more and more and I will not depend on my friends to help me to earn them. I get some cheap kamas as the gifts to encourage me.
