Summer Schedule

My parents are visiting this week from Hong Kong AND I received very helpful feedback from my critique partner, Melodie, on my work-in-progress YA novel, so I haven't had time to write short stories lately. I still have a few people's inspirational words left, so my goal is to write about one story a week until I catch up.

Just wanted to explain the delay.

If you're in the northern hemisphere, enjoy your summer. We've had some hot, beautiful weather over here!

I've also been spending lots of time with my seven year old at the gym -- she's third from the left.

Happy summer! How have you been keeping busy?


  1. Ooh! Enjoy your revisions. :) So fun to have family around(especially when they live so far away!).

    For us, summer technically started, but then summer school started 4 days later, so it's still like the school year. I'm slowly pounding through my revision. Slowest. Reviser. Ever. Right here. :)

  2. Hi Amy - enjoy the time with your parents .. the children obviously are enjoying their grandparents .. I'm so pleased for you - congratulations on your WIP .. keep going with all those goals - yet enjoy the summer weather .. it's gloomy over here! Cheers Hilary

  3. Sounds like a perfect summer, Amy. Enjoy this time with your familiy. Write. Revise. Sleep? Maybe ... We're settling into our lazy routine. Blessings to your husband on this Father's Day.

  4. HI Amy, you sound as though you're having a lovely time. Lots of smiles in those pictures :-)

    Just wanted to let you know how much I'm enjoying your short stories. Thank you for sharing.

  5. My goodness, but it's been too long since I came to visit. Saw your post pop up in my email, and though I'd come wave hello. Sounds like your summer is going fabulously! How fun to have your parents visit. Your kiddos are just precious!

  6. How lovely that your parents can visit, enjoy every minute with them!
    Beautiful photos of your kiddos.
    I've been too busy recently but hoping to get back soon to blogging.

  7. Looks like you are having a great time and WOO HOO revisions! You got this, Amy. My summer has been going well, except for having a summer cold. Boo! Other than that, though, working hard on revisions and CP announcements (see: blog) and being excited for sunshine. :-)

  8. Hi, Amy. Happy Summer! It's finally H.O.T. spells HOT in TX!

  9. What a great summer it's starting out to be! I know you are enjoying it.
