June 29th..already!

I can't believe it's already the end of June! My intentions have been to post a couple times per week. Not because a lot of people read my blog, but because I really enjoy posting little things here and there. I think this is the beginning of week four of my summer break. My favorite activities of the summer have been:

1. Getting my hair cut's much cooler and it is fun to change things up (No, I have no pictures..YET!)
2. Spending time with friends by the pool
3. Not going to bed at 9:30 pm and waking up at 4:45 am
4. Having as much time as I want to read my bible and journal in the mornings
5. Writing

Number 5 is what I want to briefly talk about. I have always loved to write. You can read my first blog post about my love for writing. So, this summer I am trying to spend at least a couple hours everyday writing something. I am doing some technical writing for The Village, as well as working on some ideas I have for a children's series. I have no clue if anything will come from any of it, but I am having a lot of fun right now!

Recently I have read several books from renown authors on the craft of writing, and most all of them say write something everyday and read A LOT! Last summer I shared some of the books I enjoyed on here , and wanted to do the same this summer. I try to keep the Shelfari link on the right hand side of my blog some what updated, but here a few of my favorite recent reads.

I am going to try to get better about blogging and incorporating some of my writing into my blog. We shall see what the Lord does with it all.
