Not-So-Lazy Days of Summer

How exactly is it July 22nd already? I swear, I was staring out the window at slushy snow just days ago. And now back-to-school ads are popping up . . .

But even though this has been a busy summer so far, it’s been busy in delightful ways:


Pre-fireworks in my beautiful hometown, Madison, WI


Quality time with my adorable nephew


Sunny days at the beach


Exploring the Catskills (not pictured: black bear encounter)


NY’s gorgeous waterfalls

I’ve also read some amazing books lately, like Ann M. Martin’s Rain Reign and the short-story collection This Is Paradise.

From now until I head off to Texas, I’m working very hard on edits for The Summer of Lost and Found. I’m a little nervous about making this the best book it can be, but revising is also my favorite part of the writing process. I’ve had a few lightbulb moments in the past week, and I’m excited.

How’s your summer?

  1. This summer has gone strangely fast – normally it crawls by and feels years long because of the heat.

    I got to visit with my nieces the other day and was not surprised to learn I’m still completely awkward at holding babies.

    Good luck with your revisions and enjoy your trip to TX!
