Sunday Post: September 14

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by the Caffeinated Reviewer . It’s a chance to share news, recap the past week on your blog, and showcase books and things you’ve received. The rules are here: The Sunday Post.

This was a weird week. It was a long week, but it didn’t feel like it was that long in the middle of it all. It wasn’t until Friday afternoon when I thought back on what had happened and was like, “That was this week? It felt forever ago!”

Some good things happened. Yesterday, I went to a writers group and workshopped the first 500 words of my novel. It was very well received, which was gratifying, and I also got some excellent feedback. Which leads me to the question: would anyone out in blogland be interested in reading excerpts of it? It’s a vampire novel. If there’s interest, I can post snippets once a week or so.

In health news, I had my first asthma attack in years on Friday. It was very hot. I’d taken my kids to the library when my chest got tight and I started coughing. I knew what was going on, but I soldiered on and stayed with the kids. I also didn’t have an inhaler. Luckily, it all turned out okay; someone lent me there inhaler, someone took my class, I cooled down, and made it through the end of the day. I got home to discover I had three inhalers in my desk, so… those are going in my teaching bag.

Reading-wise, I’m nearing the end of The Alienist, which I’m loving. I’m thinking of trying the TV show after, if I can find it streaming somewhere. And, even though I have a TBR pile growing, I still checked out the book Legendary from the library because it was finally in, and I’ve been dying to read it. So… oops?
