A Pop Quiz

Why is Kasie such a lazy blogger? (Very good question)

A. She doesn't think she has anything worth posting.

B. She can't do more than two productive things a day and ever since she started working out, her quota on productivity has been met.

C. She has been traveling a lot.

D. She has been writing a lot and all her creativity has been stolen and used up in her book.

E. She has been editing a lot and when she is editing she is extra critical of herself and thinks all the blog post ideas she comes up with are stupid.

F. All of the above.

Yes, the answer is F. And I get an F for this blog lately too. But, I am hoping to remedy this. As mentioned in B, I started working out and boy do I have some funny stories of me in some 'way too hard for my wimpy body' classes that I must share. Because we all like reading anecdotes of me making a fool of myself, right? Yes. We do. Plus, I've been reading a lot, so I have more reviews to share. Yay, this has been a blog post about how I'm going to have future blog posts! So satisfying.

Wishing I could read Wednesday

My TBR pile is growing taller as my beta reading inbox is filling up. I have so many books I want to read right now sitting there waiting for me. Lola, Variant, Hourglass, just to name a few. I'm staring at them with dreamy eyes right now, in fact, while typing this. Yes, I'm typing and staring. Isn't the cover of Hourglass amazing. Probably one of my favorite covers ever.

Anyway, I'm not complaining (much) because I am so lucky to get to read some amazing manuscripts and give suggestions while suggestions are still being taken. It's not quite as satisfying to have suggestions for already published books. :) I suppose that's what book clubs are for. Someone at church invited me to book club. I told her, that I would be a tyrant at a book club. I have too many opinions and want everyone to agree with them. She seemed to be willing to take that risk as she handed me the book and told me she'd see me there. She also promised there would be dinner which went a long way in overriding my fear of being too opinionated. So, I will report next month about how many enemies I made at book club. In the mean time I will practice biting my tongue. The funny thing is that I actually like most books so I don't know why I'm so worried. Maybe I'm worried I'll have to defend authors everywhere? Well, either way, I guess I'm going. My first adult book club ever. (I say 'adult' because I've had a few book clubs at my house with teens--those were fun.)

In other news, my agent started blogging! You should go check out her blog here. She's so fun and you'll get to see why I love her so much. Very entertaining.
