Okay so here’s the deal: This is the first weekend in way too long that I don’t have to
A. Box up my entire life
B. Move to a new apartment or
C. Unpack and squish a two-bedroom apartment’s worth of junk into my new one-bedroom place.
Not that those things aren’t SO FUN.
So I’m taking the time to write nonstop. And when I say write, I mean rewrite. And when I say rewrite, I mean tear apart and piece back together with glue and love.
I will also be torturing people over and over again.* Call me a sicko, but I kind of enjoy it.
Anyway. I also wanted to congratulate Christine Fonseca on the release of her book, 101 Success Secrets for Gifted Kids: The Ultimate Handbook. Here’s the blurb:
Pssst! Want to know a secret? 101 Success Secrets for Gifted Kids: The Ultimate Handbook is a must-read for gifted kids ages 8 to 12 who want to find success in school and life. If you know gifted kids, they will love the 101 awesome secrets, tips, and tricks included in this book!
Chock full of fun suggestions and practical strategies, 101 Success Secrets for Gifted Kids covers topics including bullying, school performance, perfectionism, friendships, and sibling rivalries.
