I'm Baaaaccckkk.

When I titled my last post And This Is Where I Stop Writing, I didn't mean to actually jinx myself. I haven't written for two weeks - on my blog (obviously) and on my manuscript (obvious, but only to me).

I blaim it on a quick decision to take the family to Disneyland in six days time. Hello laundry, errands, phone calls to cancel all appointments during said vacation time, packing, cleaning the car, and buying snacks. It was crazy but worth it.

So, writing? Nada.
Reading? Two books, baby!

While packing I listened to Austenland by Shannon Hale. It was really fun and cute. Especially for anyone who loves Pride & Prejudice.

While at Disneyland (or I should say, in the hotel room resting my aching feet. Three days at Disneyland is hard goin') I started Paranormalcy by Kiersten White. It was so FUN! Seriously, this book was a total escape for me. And an awesome one at that.

Paranormal Romance is not my favorite genre. I can be kinda critical of it just because there is so much of it right now. But Paranormalcy was oh s0 cool. Seriously, read it. Especially if you liked the T.V. series Buffy The Vampire Slayer. It was similar, but very different at the same time. And if you are like me - and not too into fantasy - read it anyway. You might just love it like I did. :)

Now to make writing goals. We'll go low - say, 2500 words - to help me get back into the swing of things.
