Thursdaily with reading report, and Muse Fusion update!

Guppy and I are reading chapter books, which thrills me. Seriously, I never thought she'd have the attention span for it, and I'm delighted she finally does now.

We read How to Train Your Dragon first, which honestly was a disappointment. I was spoiled by the movie, which was heartwarming and gorgeous, and thought the book was sort of mean-spirited and had utterly dreadful illustrations. But we got through all 30-odd chapters, and I consider that a big win.

We're now almost finished with ursulav's Harriet the Invincible, which has been MUCH more fun. (I think it's really quite awesome being able to point out 'I knew the author back when!' but Guppy is unimpressed. She thinks I know everyone and is constantly asking 'Who's that?'about complete strangers and then not believing me when I say I have no idea.)

Guppy has been going backwards into reading. She likes to put all kinds of letters together and ask me what they spell. "What does t-y-k-m-o spell?" I gamely try to sound it out. She grins. "What does g-m-w-l-c spell?" I work that out. She grins.

Muse Fusion is still going! These are the sketches I've done so far:



I've also started a short story and written (and then re-written) a poem. There's still time to leave prompts - and you can do so with your EMG/Sketch Fest login, you don't need a separate registration for Torn World anymore. :) https://www.tornworld.net/musefusion.php
