In My Mailbox

I had a good week again, getting quite a bit done on WIP2 along with some reading done. Most definitely loving how WIP2 is turning out so far. Not sure on the total word count since I haven't put everything together into one document yet but I have 8 1/2 chapters done and spent awhile tonight writing basically a whole chapter based off a scene idea I had. Not sure if I'll use it but I am completely in love with how it turned out so I'll probably work it in. I feel too strongly for it not to. But... enough about that. On to the fun stuff in my mailbox this week.

    Fabulous books!

  21. My husband wants to know how you got the dog to sit still :) Adorable! Enjoy the books and things.

  22. As always... thanks for the comments. I really appreciate it =)

    As for Toby... there is always much bribery in getting him to sit still for the pictures. His particular interest in the DUFF picture is because I am holding his Beggin Strips beg right above the camera. The shoes one we fought alot on... he kept taking his paws out... or rolling over... or walking away. He's really finnicky about his feet and didn't appreciate me messing with them. But Beggin Strips usually wins out for his cooperating. =) Some weeks I get him while he's sleeping, when he's too lazy and tired to care. =P

  23. Hehehe such great pictures! Happy reading. My mailbox is at The Crowded Leaf.

  24. Cool books! I want to read DUFF too. Looking forward to reading your reviews :)

    This is what we got THIS WEEK

    Have a Great DAY! {Just started following you :) }
