Disney has acquired screen rights to the young adult novel “Wings” and will develop the Aprilynne Pike title as a film for Miley Cyrus. Source
Not sure what I think about this. I haven’t read Wings yet but I do plan to. Anyone who read the book have thoughts on this?

I am slowly morphing into a 6th grader……I have been listening to Miley Cyrus’ latest single on repeat for almost 30 minutes. This is what happens when you are around 12 year olds all day! (For those wondering, the song is “See You Again”).
Tomorrow we start NaNoWriMo in class. I have run off 38 copies of the Young Writer’s Workbook (much to the chagrin of everyone else waiting for the copier this afternoon!), picked up 38 composition books, and teased my kids with the promise of an awesome project for November. I think we will be aiming to 10,000 words written by the end of November. Or we will make it our goal to fill out the composition books we start. I also plan to write alongside the kids, because I know how hard NaNoWriMo is and I want them to see that I will also struggle, but that I will battle through and reach the goal! (Notice the positive thinking here….hehe).
Tomorrow we will begin by signing our “contracts”, beginning our workbooks, and doing our first writing. We’re off to the races!!
