#Fail

Yep, I totally failed my own genre challenge. Maybe I should've made it, "read a genre you haven't read before sometime this summer," because last week, it totally wasn't happening. I'm still committed to reading Steampunk though. I requested Gail Carriger's The Parasol Protectorate series from my library, so I'm at least off to a start.

Did anyone have better luck?

I'd like to say I'll have a chance to read this week, but I'd hate to be wrong again. My goal this week is actually to get some more editing done on BS. I have another partial request and I'd like to go through the MS one more time before sending it off. You know the feeling.

Yep! I failed too. I had the best of intentions, but absolutely no reading time - zippo! :-)

See, now I don't feel so bad. I did just get done grading for the day though, and I think I'm gonna head to the library. Maybe my books are already in!

Well even if you don't read something from a new genre. Check out these great articles on writing.

I read something I loved this week. "Touching Spirit Bear". It was on my list to read because it appeals to my audience that I'm going for. Loved the book!
