Celebrate the Small Things 17-10-14

This post is part of VikLit's blog hop, Celebrate the Small Things. Head on over there to join up! 

So, what am I celebrating this week?

Writing!  I've dug out an old project and am re-working it with the help of my critique group.  As a result of my CP's first chapter crit, I've written a whole new opening to the book - one that works much better.  So I'm excited to keep going with this story now.

I read a fantastic book this week, one of those books that just stays with you after you've read it.  If you haven't already read OCD LOVE STORY, I really can't recommend it any more highly.  It delves deeply into the mind of a girl with OCD and being there is often painfully uncomfortable.  But it's also totally compelling.  When I got to the last third of the book, I really didn't want to stop reading.  It was like a car crash you see coming but can't do anything to stop.

The kids went back to school after a two weeks off.  I'm celebrating not having to find things for them to do every day, but definitely not celebrating the whole getting-them-off in the morning.

What are you celebrating this week?


  1. I think it would be cool to be in someone's head who has OCD. Glad you enjoyed it. Good luck with the new project! :)

  2. I love books like that, that you just don't want to put down. Good look with your old project!

  3. I love books that suck us in and keep us to the end. Best wishes with your writing endeavors!

  4. A good book and re-writes call for celebration>

  5. I'm so glad you're enjoying reworking the old story! And wow, books that leaves us so engrossed in them are awesome!

  6. I don't usually like romances, but that sounds like an interesting one. Good luck with the rewrites :)

  7. Your new-old project sounds exciting! And thanks for the book recommendation. I'm always looking for great books to read.
