I woke up this morning old!
I looked in the mirror and I had definitely aged.
When did it happen?
I'm not sure, one day I was young and now I'm not so young. I guess time just crept up on me. And it seems it's true that time goes faster as you get older.
Maybe it's because my Birthday is only a week and half away.
So what about the writing - well so far I've written over 28,000 words of this YA novel. I also had a good writing group meeting yesterday where we wrote Haiku; were inspired by different music selections & created a nonsense word and meaning. It's great fun to exercise our writing muscles in different ways.
And reading - well I have to recommend: "The Giver" by Lois Lowry - a truly excellent thought provoking read that will stay with you long after you've read it. And "A Certain Slant of Light" by Laura Whitcomb - a ghostly romance with a difference - after 130 years of not being seen Helen is seen by a young man in her host's English class - very clever.

Okay - enough random ramblings - I'm off to eat vegetable soup (I'm trying to be healthy) (trying)!
