Manic Monday

It's not such a manic Monday today since it's a holiday, but here I go anyway.

Manic Writing

I'm sending out queries for Sway right now and on Saturday I got my first full request! Yipee! Here's a Sway teaser:
“You going?” Lexi asked me.
“You know I don’t want to.”
“I know.” Her arm still linked with mine, she patted my hand. “But you should. Show Eric that you don’t care who he dates or what he does with his life.”
“But I don’t care.”
She arched a brow. “Uh-huh.”

Manic Reading

On the weekend, I really did read like a maniac. I read The Rise of Nine by Pittacus Lore, which was exciting at first but the ending was a little bit meh. Then I read Chantress by Amy Butler Greenfield which was good. Now I'm rereading Percy Jackson and The Olympians: The Lightening Thief. I'm gonna reread The Sea of Monsters next, in prep for the movie which I'll probably be taking my oldest kids to this week. Here's a teaser from The Lightening Thief:

He was seven feet tall, easy, his arms and legs like something from the cover of Muscle Man magazine- bulging biceps and triceps and a bunch of other 'ceps, all stuffed like baseballs under vein-webbed skin. (page 50)

Manic Watching

The Bachelorette. Oh poor, poor Desiree. I was a bit behind and watched last week's episode last night and I'm still feeling sorry for Desiree, and Brooks too. I don't know how she could possibly pick someone now. Poor Chris and poor Drew, too. Sheesh. I feel bad and yet I can't wait to see how it all plays out tonight. (stupid TV)

Manic Listening

In honor of getting a full request (eeee!), here's Michael Buble singing Cry Me A River, just like Eric sings to Ava in my MS.
