Summer Excitement

As the dreary, winterish months are my most busy, the sunshiney, summery months are my most productive. The warmth energizes me and the sun stays out way past it's bedtime. There's color and sound and overall awesome*.

I'll admit it: I like the Daystar.

I also like the color yellow**.

Today's post isn't about confessions. It's all about what exciting things are on the summer front for yours truly now that Falling to Normal is going out for one more beta***.

  • New projects. I mapped out two during Weekend of Awesome and I have a few more in my brain. The first order of business though is to work on something that is purely fun.
  • Summer reads. A couple of Fridays back, I listed the books I was planning on reading this summer. Because the all had a light, summery feel, I decided I'd rock that theme as long as I'm able to****.
  • New writing techniques. My new thing is to try a new approach with each new project. I have a copy of 90 Days to Your Novel and with both WIPs out for beta, it's the perfect time to try this out.
  • Bags. I have a crocheted tote bag pattern I want to try out. Plus I have a few easy patterns for fabric bags I might give a go to.
  • Movies. There are so many coming out this summer it's ridiculous. Wizards. Super heros. Poohbear. THE ROOM.
  • A redux of Real World Cape Cod. It should be as awesome as last year.
What fantastic things are on the summer front for you?

Don't forget to enter to win a signed copy of Jenna and Jonah's Fauxmance!

** This is a recent development. My inner goth is working through the shock.

  1. Hey, yellow used to be my fave color, too--I'm telling you, you're like my adopted sister. :) And I can't wait to get a lot of reading done, including the Iron Fey series. I'm also excited to work on revisions for the manuscript you read at WOA. By the way, I may so bug you to be a beta reader for that one. ;)

  2. I have been enjoying summer days in the park by my house. Also training for a triathlon. Can't wait to see Harry Potter. I'm working on a revision this summer too.

  3. You have all kinds of cool things going on this summer! I'm looking forward to fun in the sun with my daughter, Harry Potter (obviously) and my manuscript going out on submission. Here's to warmth and sunshine!

  4. Sounds like you'll have a busy, but fun summer. I also plan to see some of the movies coming out. Transformers was INCREDIBLE! :)
