Sometimes leaving my current w.i.p. is hard. Especially when I decide to take the whole week off from it. But, usually, after that break, I return refreshed, refueled and ready to write.
My family is in early this week for Thanksgiving. Knowing I will not have time to visit all your awesome blogs, I’m taking a blogation this holiday week.
The two great things are:
1. We’ve already done the whole two hour grueling family portrait thing.
2. And next week, Kate Messner, author and teacher extrordinaire will be visiting and sharing her take on the role of parents in kidlit books. Should they be dead, missing, or what?
Have a great week, whether it’s a holiday or not for you! And I’ll catch ya next week!
Sometimes taking a break from a WIP is the best thing for it.
Have a good holiday!
We all deserve a break once in a while. Have a great Thanksgiving!
Enjoy your time with your fam!
And looking forward to the post about parents in books!
Enjoy your break, Laura. 😀
Have a great week! Can’t wait for Kate Messner’s take on parents in fiction.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving! I’m looking forward to dropping in next week, too. I’m interested in her take on the subject. 🙂
Have a great thanksgiving. I’m totally interested what she has to say about that, because every author seems to get rid of parents in some form or another.
Happy Thanksgiving, Laura!! I love Kate Messner. Love her. Woo-hoo!!
Ooh…I’ll have to check back next week for the kidlit parent talk! But meanwhile, I know what you mean about parting ways with the WiP – so hard, and yet I’ve found it’s necessary to wrench myself away sometimes.
Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂
Have a great break and happy thanksgiving!
I just took a week off from my WIP. Definitely a good thing to do. Can’t wait to hear Kate’s Thoughts on parents in YA! Happy Thanksgiving.
I look foward to Kate’s take on parents in kid lit. Hpoe you had a great Thanksgiving.
