Sunday Synopsis: October 16, 2011

Since only one hour remains in Sunday, I figured I better get writing for a quick weekly check-in!  As many of you could probably tell, not a whole lot was accomplished this past week here on the site.  I was swamped, working into the wee hours of the night much of the week.  The most exciting part was attending a panel on local women's fiction writers, which will be featured via the Walrus Report later this week.  Other than that, not a whole lot was accomplished on the reading or writing front.  Now that a bit of time has been cleared, I'm hoping to change that this week!  I have a stack of books to review, a stack of books to read, and I can't wait to dive into both!!

On the reading front, I am currently reading Deadline by Mira Grant as well as The Last Vampire by Christopher Pike (a re-read from my teen years!).  I am also excited to start reading Bunnicula tomorrow with my son!!  I'm not sure which book will be next in line after these ones, but I am sure I can find something!  What's on your reading agenda?

On the writing front, I am considering participating in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) in November.  I have seen the chatter about it over the last few years, have been encouraged by many to participate, but have not yet.  Any thoughts you would like to share with a possible newbie?

Last, but not least, I am excited to be participating in another independent bookstore cruise on Saturday!!  I will get to meet more local authors, visit with a few of my personal favorites, and discover more indies in my area.  I am so excited and hope to be posting a few different things via Twitter and Facebook throughout the day.  Be sure to tune in!

I wish you a wonderful week and many happy readings!!


  1. Do NaNoWriMo and let me live vicariously through you. Been thinking on it, still haven't decided.

  2. Good luck if you do participate in NaNoWriMo. I've not been tempted by it (I consider myself to be a reader, not really a writer).

  3. Have fun on the bookstore cruise, as it sounds like a great time!

  4. ... LOL!! Or, we could do it together?!? Not sure what I'm getting myself into!! :)

    Tracy ... Thank you!! I've been writing for a while now, but have never attempted a novel. It's a daunting task to even think about!

    Alexia561 ... I am so excited for it and will be sharing all about it next week! Woohoo!! :)
