It’s hard to believe that my first book signing has come and gone! It was so terrific, though. In case you missed it, here’s my post about it! After the long, busy weekend, I’m focusing this week on getting back into the groove of writing productivity and Maiedae work. Without further ado, here’s my Wednesday Wanderment!
Favorite Blog of the Week:
>> Everyday Paleo — Um…L.M., you do know that’s NOT a writing or reading related blog, right? Yes, other L.M., I know. (;-)) Since last week was so busy getting ready for the book signing, I didn’t exactly feed myself the way I should. This week, along with getting back into the work-swing, I’m also loving on my body and mind with some awesome, tasty food! Writers need to be healthy just like everyone else! How can we expect our minds to produce amazing stories if our bodies are sluggish, tired, and malnourished? While I don’t live exactly by a paleo lifestyle, I do limit my carbohydrates and I love paleo recipes! Enjoy this fun website!

Random Facts About My Writing and Reading Habits
>> My word counts go through cycles. Some weeks, I’m INSANELY prolific and can write up to 6,000 words a day! In other weeks? I’m doing good to get my minimum 2,000 per day in. Just depends on how active the muse is.
>> I was very resistant to publish through Smashwords until I realized how author-friendly and amazing they are, then I jumped on the Smashwords train!
>> I’m really looking forward to reading the Inkeart series this year. I LOVED the first book and can’t wait to read the others!
