It’s almost the end of Summer Reading.
Boy, did it go fast!
Tomorrow is a special carnival, and then after that, a few loose ends to tie up and then… back to normal.
It’s been a rush, like Summer Reading always is. I love seeing patrons’ faces light up during programs. Or their excitement when they learn they won a prize. Or just the anticipation of all the adventure that awaits in a stack of books brought up to the desk.
Of course, libraries always have all of that. But Summer Reading… it’s a particularly special time.
I’m going to miss it. But it comes around again next year. (And in the meantime… maybe I’ll start planning a really cool Halloween-themed program series.)
But the end of Summer Reading also means the restart of writing.
So here I come. I hope my keyboard is prepared for all the stories I have pent up inside of me.
A bit of progress may have still been made during the summer, but now…. *cracks knuckles*
Now, it’s time to catch up on stories and projects. On query letters. On blog posts that are more than 500 words!
Bring it on.
