Finally finished All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr and it was really good. I think he overdid it on metaphors sometimes, but otherwise the writing was beautiful. The characters were excellent and I loved the slightly different setting and circumstances than other WWII stories I've read. My biggest complaint is something that happened in the end that I felt was a little bit of a letdown. But I'd still recommend it to anyone interested in historical.
Now I'm reading The Eighth Guardian and I'm enjoying it so far.
WHAT I'M WRITING
Wrote about 7k this week! Progress! My goal is to just keep on truckin' and don't lose my mojo.
WHAT WORKS FOR ME
I'm not great at writing on Saturdays, but when I do, earphones and my writing playlist help immensly. So even though the hubs was watching TV in the same room and the kids were constantly in and out, I got quite a bit written. Some new songs on my playlist are from Doctor Who, Season Five.

AMY POND'S THEME
WHAT ELSE IS NEW
If anyone missed my announcement from last Friday (scroll down), I'm going to be published!!! Samhain is publishing my adult Persuasion retelling. Woot woot!
Of course, nothing beats that, but I also had a couple of nights out for dinner, and saw American Sniper which was really good but hard to watch sometimes. When the movie was over and everyone was walking out, it was dead quiet. Definitely a movie to see. I'm also crazy in love with Call the Midwife. This show is so good! I hope my cable gets season four soon.
What have you been up to?
