Aching For Pen and Paper :)

Not much writing this week, although my spirit is aching for pen and paper! :)  When I don't have a lot of time to sit and write or study, I jot things down randomly as needed, hoping to string them together when I have the chance!  With that said, here's what's been keeping me busy the last few days!....

  • Our daughter is a Senior (HOW did that happen and WHERE did the time go??) and this week she has been busy (WE have been busy) with her FFA (Future Farmers of America) organization at our county fair.
  • I am joining with The Bloom Book Club for a book study which starts this weekend!  For more info or to join with us click here :)  I've just received my second copy of the book (Strong Women, Soft Hearts) yesterday (I gave my first one away as soon as I got it!) so I've been reviewing Chapter one and it is reeeeaaaaallly good!  So if you haven't signed up already, it's not too late!  Whadda ya waitin' on??;)  (I am from Texas, ya know....)
  • I've just been approved to review books for Tyndale House Publishers and booksneeze.com (note the two new buttons on my right side bar).  Is anyone else doing this or maybe done this before?  Advice and/or suggestions welcome!
  • Again, my daughter is a Senior!  .....and announcements HAVE to go out this week! (all ready except for stamps which will get put on tomorrow...yay!)
But I promise to write soon!  Maybe even tonight :)

Hope you've all had an amazing week!!

Time flies, doesn't it? My daughter graduated high school last June. I have 3 others still to graduate! I do book reviews for both Tyndale and Booksneeze. I like the fact that there is no time limit. Sometime I just don't get to it right away. But my only advice is to be honest in your review, which I am sure you will be. If you don't like what you read, say so! Blessings!

Thanks, Barbie! I think your blog may be the one that led me to the book review sites! So thank you for your advice and your introduction! :) And we still have 2 others to graduate, one starting highschool and one starting KINDERGARDEN!!! :))

I have always wanted to do book reviews... How did you get to do that? It sounds fun!!

********Shelly********* said...

Hi Mel! Click on the buttons on my sidebar (or go to Barbie's page and click on them! haha) and they will take you to where you need to go! All I did was fill out an application and wait for them to approve my blog. Good luck! :)

The book reviews sound fun! I guess you'll be doing A LoT of reading now!

I was just talking to my sister about high school. It's been 6 years since I was in high school...I feel so old!

@fallingintofavor: Ummm...no, you are not old! Although you did just make ME feel a little vintage! ;) And no worries, I'm a fast reader (except when my ADD kicks in....haha)

@Starla....I know, crazy how times flies when you're having fun! :)
