What's Up Wednesday--the one with cannoli!

WHAT I'M READING

I've hardly read a word this week. We've been listening to The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell in the car. I don't get its popularity, except that it was written by a famous person. My kids like it fine but I've read so many amazing books lately, I'm gotten spoiled. Poor, poor me. 

WHAT I'M WRITING

We're really cruising on editing Pyromancy, so of course I'm going on vacation starting--now. Hopefully my coauthors don't lose our momentum.

WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW

Momastery. I feel like she speaks right to my soul. Every single day. How does she do it? 

The past few days she's been sharing her story of overcoming addiction, which is so full of wonderful I can't decide on a part to share, but she also talks about parenting and writing and just about everything I care about. Here's a quote about success:
Q: Glennon, your book, blog, live events and non-profit are all doing very well. What's the secret to becoming an overnight success? 
A: Hm. Well, that I suppose that depends on how you define "overnight" and how you define "success." I started writing Momastery six years ago, and I probably spend nine hours a day working on my writing and non-profit. So I guess in my case, the secret to overnight success was working for 19,710 hours before going to sleep.

WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN UP TO

My sister is coming! My sister is coming! And she's bringing her wonderful family. By the time you read this, we'll be exploring the streets of Boston together. And by the time I get around to visiting your blogs, I'll be eating cannoli from Mike's Pastry! I'm a very lucky girl.

  1. I wanted to read The Land of Stories series eventually. Is it just poorly written or kind of blah on the plot?
