The Book of Ivy by Amy Engel
WHAT'S HAPPENING IN BECCA LAND?
Well, this week I didn't buy much, which is surprising, I know. But I did go to the doctor for the wrist on Monday, and it turns out that I have Neuropathic Pain in my wrist. They gave me a steroid shot and a brace, which has helped a lot. Thank goodness, because if it didn't, they were going to have to refer me to a neurologist, and that word completely freaked me out!
Then, on Friday, our furnace decided to be a butthead, and started blowing cold air instead of warm. It really sucked, because it was only 23* outside when it happened, so we called the repair man, and he was here until 1 a.m.! He rigged it so it would work for the night, but the bad news was our furnace had cracks in it. We had to replace it, and if you've never replaced a furnace, let me just say...it's hella expensive.
On Saturday, I finally took the plunge (two weeks late, mind you) into NaNoWriMo land. This whole year I've just been out of the writing thing. I'm not entirely sure what the deal was but I know it was a combination of pressure and feeling like I wasn't good enough. Plus the idea that had been spinning inside my head for the majority of the year, was the book that scared me. I was so scared to write this book, because it's very near and dear to my heart. But I finally got my crap together and wrote like the wind. I'm just on the other side of 10K as of right now. I'm hoping to get to 15K by the end of the night! I will win NaNo again this year, I swear it. I can do this. I will do it. Are any of ya'll NaNo-ing? Add me as a friend so we can cry together!
Other than that, I've been reading. (Le duh) I read In the Afterlight by Alexandra Bracken (which was good, but it just didn't pack the punch the first two did. Solid ending though!), The Book of Ivy (LOVED), slowly making my way through My True Love Gave to Me (which some I love and some I just don't), and I've nearly read The Walled City (which is epic!) What have you been reading?
