This is what I’ve been up to this week…

1. 1. WHAT I’M READING…

I just finished 2 books…

I loved both of these books. They were unique and I appreciated that they didn’t read like other books I’ve read recently. The writing was great and the characters were refreshing. I read the prequel first and then the second book. The series was hot, steamy, sexy, and filled with true love. My kind of books.

2. WHAT I’M WRITING…

I’ve started a new novel. I’m only at 10,000 words, so I still have a long way to go.I haven’t worked on it much the last couple of weeks because the end of the school year is a busy time, but here’s a quick teaser I posted the other day when I was tagged on Facebook.

He held the car door open for me and I rolled my eyes. I had to make sure Walt understood where we stood, which was nowhere. “I can open my own car door.”
“I know.”
I sighed deeply. “Just because you open car doors for me doesn’t mean anything.”
“I know.”
His arrogant, superior, know-it-all attitude got under my skin. “You’re an insufferable human being.”
“I know.”
I slid into the passenger seat. Walt’s eyes never left me. I wanted to slap him and kiss him all at the same time.
“Tell me how you really feel. Just make sure you tell me in Spanish, because you know how I love that.”
I opened my mouth and sure enough I closed it right before a litany of vulgar Spanish words slipped out.
Walt closed the door and I heard his laughter as he made his way around to the driver’s side. “Luciana, don’t be embarrassed. You know I love it when you talk in your native tongue to me.”
I huffed and sat against the leather seat. I closed my eyes and took several deep breaths. He couldn’t know where my imagination went when I heard him say the word tongue. I shouldn’t even be having these thoughts about Walt. It was absurd.

3. WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW…

Authors, Readers, and bloggers. I couldn’t exist without you! Please leave me a comment–I’d love to hear from you!

Also stop on by and like my Facebook page. I’m going to have a giveaway as soon as I reach 500 likes and I’m getting close.

4. WHAT ELSE I’VE BEEN UP TO…

School is out and today is the first official day of summer vacation. Making a list of all the fun things I want to do with my kids before it’s over, because summer goes by way too fast. And I am not ready to have one in high school next year!

4. WHAT ELSE I’VE BEEN UP TO…

Things are starting to wrap up here. I’ve been to two Spring concerts in the past week and I’ll be going to another one tonight. Also sports are winding down. Yesterday I went to my daughter’s last field hockey game. Next, I’ll be going to the final softball and track meets. Go kids! It’s a busy house with three kids and an exchange student from Spain. But I wouldn’t have it any other way.

What’s Up Wednesday–a day late. Oops!

3. WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW…

Teaching Spanish. I’m thinking about a new character who is bilingual…

One of my favorite quotes, and I apologize that I don’t know who said it other than my professor in college, and if you know who said it please leave a comment, but here goes…

“To speak two languages is to have two souls.”

4. WHAT ELSE I’VE BEEN UP TO…

I have to confess, I’ve been watching a lot of TV lately. Something I rarely do. We recently got Netflix and I find myself addicted. I can’t seem to stop myself from watching one more episode.

I am reading “Love Exactly” by Cassandra Giovanni

What I’m Writing.

I’m writing a New Adult/Contemporary Romance Novel entitled, “Breaking All the Rules.” Currently I’m at 14,000 words. I wrote 2,000 words yesterday.

What else I’ve been up to

Shopping. Getting my girls ready for Camp Stella Maris. I don’t remember needing so much stuff when I went there. Although some things don’t change–I dragged my trunk there 30 years ago too. Next, we will be doing back-to-school shopping.

What inspires me right now

A post I read by Cassandra Giovanni. She talks about her goals and how she has reached them. I should think about setting specific goals. She sounds so busy, yet she gets it done. Sometimes I feel like I could do more.
