Wow, it's almost the middle of April!! We're Keeping up with the A-Z challenge and with our personal challenge of naming a book/author for each letter. What we aren't Keeping up with is visiting new blogs. Parent-teacher conferences took up the end of March and the conference took up the beginning of April. Now we're on the home stretch and hope to find lots of new friends before the month is over - let us know in the comments if there are any MUST SEE blogs you've found lately.
This summer we are focusing on our WIPs. They will become completed first-drafts. They MUST become completed first drafts. Since we're both teachers, we'll have more time once June gets here. Since we're both stay-at-home moms to 2 boys (who never want to stay home), though, time can really fly and before you know it, a
day week month summer is gone. We're definitely going to need some time-management.
We were thinking of setting aside 30 minute segments of our day for some
free writing/blogging time (aka kids watch movies or play together nicely, please let the nicely part happen...). Since there's two of us writing this blog, it works a little differently than it might for you. One of us will take 30 minutes to write a blog post and the other will take 30 minutes to visit other blogs and comment. Then we'll carve out another 30 minutes where we can only open our document to write or edit at least twice a day (or, if we're lucky and the kids are content playing, sleeping, bathing, etc., we can combine it into one-hour segments). Again, at night, after the kids are in bed, we'll commit to a half-hour for blogging or emailing and a half-hour for writing. That's the plan, anyhow!!
How do you Keep up with it all??
here we are
I (christy) tried to find a K book, but the first K that popped into my mind was Kiersten,
as in Kiersten White.
I hope I'm not kicking myself when P rolls around.
