Fangirl Summer Resolutions!






Fiction State of Mind-03

Happy Summer! As children summer is about long lazy days, games, movies and other pleasures. As an adult however it can be hard to truly enjoy the season with work, children, and other commitments. One of the reasons I started Fangirl Summer was to celebrate all the things you can experience in fandom during the summer months: Conventions, Theme Parks, Author Signings, and  time to catch up on your favorite shows and movies.

So here are my list of Fangirl Summer Resolutions. I will update my progress on this post through out the summer.
Resolutions
Buy a sketchbook and begin gathering sketches at conventions
Learn something new:
I’ve had these two kits on my bookshelf for over a year so I’m going to start using them

Wow! Big summer plans. The Passage was SO good. You're going to love it!

Melissa (Must Read Faster) and I are also doing Camp NaNo. We have a private cabin, but if you'd like to join us, give me your name over there and we will invite you. :)

Camp NaNo is one of my main summer projects. The other is my boys and I started a family reading project. We are going to read books together from now until they leave the house for college. I have one of those book journals and we're going to keep track of our thoughts on the books we read in it and I'll have a page on my blog. Our current reads are The Crystal Cave by Mary Stewart and Jurassic Park.

I like the Disney movie watching too. We have just about all of them on video or DVD. I should do the same. Maybe I will. ;)

Enjoy the summer!
