I went trail running this morning, even though it was really warm already (um, hot). Then I spent some time sorting out bus issues (again -- there must be something about our bus route).

Now I'm at B&N, getting some stuff done (yay). I jotted down some notes for the volunteer training I'm giving at school next week; I started a story I need to write for something else. And I wrote a first draft of my query for my WIP (which isn't finished yet, but I want to get some feedback on the query, and I already have tons of feedback for the manuscript, itself). Eventually, maybe by mid-September, I'll be looking for writing has really slowed down, btw. I think it was this time last year that I asked for insight into my last book. I used to write a book every couple of months, but now I'm down to one a year. I guess that's what happens as we age, no? :)

I cleaned D's room for him on Sunday, and I found about fifty books -- I think he's only read about a dozen of them, so he has quite the TBR pile ;) He's been buying books for his birthday and Christmas for the past few years, but I hadn't realized how many of them piled up (plus, I get him books, of course, and we've gotten a few ARCs too). There are so many more books for kids these days than there were when I was a kid -- which is a good thing, of course. I'd read every kids' book in the library by the time I was 11. I don't think I'd be able to do that today. I certainly can't keep up with the YA market!

What I'd love to do is take a nap...this getting up early is for the birds ;) What about you -- how is your Tuesday shaping up?
