Paperback books and escalators...

This morning, I finished reading "Just Between You and Me," by Jenny B. Jones, and it was such a lovely book! A great plot, a wonderful ending, hilarious humor, and a handsome vet named Connor who was a high school nerd. I definitely recommend it to everybody!

I just saw something on the NaNoWriMo homepage that made me so excited (and motivated!). If you win this year (winning simply means writing 50,000 words in 30 that simple?), you get a code to have a free proof copy of your book in a paperback form! How awesome is that? Not just writing a novel that will stay on your computer hard drive forever, but actually having a book in your hands that has your name on it and your story in it. I'm really excited about that. And they give you months to redeem it, so you can edit your story before getting it printed, which is definitely a good thing for me. I'm so focused on the word count right now that the quality isn't so great.

My child psychology class was very enjoyable today. We were discussing sleep disorders in children, like nightmare and night terrors, and I laughed harder than I've laughed in quite a while (except for maybe when I'm rereading some of my cheesy story). We got a little off topic and started telling about nightmares we'd had.

Keral: I had this dream one time. I was in the mall, and there was this mean man chasing me! He had on this mask, and I was running up stairs, but I wasn't moving or getting anywhere. And he was right on my heels.

Alicia: Maybe you were on an escalator!

Until next time,
