A Time to Write
I spent a portion of my time working on the next book in my Maidens of Petheralm series. While I’m not to the halfway or even the quarter mark at this point, I am pleased with my progress. However, I have a dilemma. Three book ideas swim in my head, none of which have anything to do with my series. When I wrote Elise’s Choice, I focused entirely on that storyline; no unrelated ideas popped in my head. Now I’m uncertain how to proceed. Do I plot and begin writing the other ideas when I need a break from Petheralm, or do I jot down the basic information for the ideas and forget about them until I complete my current project? Decisions, decisions!
A Time to Read
Since I used my time for writing, I haven’t read nearly as much as I normally do. I am still in the process of reading A Voice in the Wind and Dewitched. I’m three-fourths of the way finished with the first and halfway through the second. However, I’m definitely on target to meet my reading goal of seventy-five books this year.
Practice Makes Perfect
Our local theatrical production of The Diary of Anne Frank opens in less than a week. We’ve had lengthy practices nearly every night, practicing in full costume and with sound cues. I think it’s going well. I can’t wait for our first performance!
I met my dear friend, Diane Vaughn, for lunch at Arby’s a couple times this week. Naturally, I had to try Arby’s turkey Rachel sandwich. It’s rather exciting sharing a name with such a tasty sandwich.
Following one of our Arby lunch dates, Diane, my mother, and I went to see Disney’s new live-action Cinderella. I absolutely loved it! I could go into detail about it, but I have a post idea about Cinderella that I plan to run on Monday’s Random Rambling, so be sure to check it out.
Although there were no trips to museums or amusement parks and no out-of-town visits, I thoroughly enjoyed my Spring Break. And now, I must prepare my mind for the return to school. With approximately two months left until summer vacation, there are several topics to teach and reteach. My planning awaits me!
