What’s Up Wednesday


Hosted by Jaime Morrow and Erin L. Funk, this is a great way for writers to get together and keep in touch!

So what have I been up to?

WHAT I’M READING

I finished Labyrinth, and quite liked it! If you’re a fan of the movie I’d recommend the book…the novel was comforting, like visiting an old childhood favourite. Plus, what really makes it worthwhile is the sketches and reproduction of Jim Henson’s personal notebook that’s included at the end. It’s really interesting stuff, =)

I’ve now started Marcus Sedgwick’s Midwinterblood, which I got for Christmas. I’m not too far into it yet, but the concept intrigues me. Hopefully it will be good!

WHAT I’M WRITING + WRITING GOAL
 
I made it to 28,500 words, so a bit short of my 30k goal, but that’s alright. I went back and made notes on the things I know need to change/add, so it was still a productive week. And I’ll keep the same goal for this week…trying to get up to the 30k mark.

WHAT WORKS FOR ME
Evening writing sessions. It’s nice to snuggle up in bed with the laptop and get some writing done. There’s something quite cozy about writing like that, so even though I don’t always get the opportunity to do it, I appreciate when I can.

WHAT ELSE I’VE BEEN UP TO

Baby boy got shots on Monday, so it’s been a rough couple of days for him. He seems in better spirits this morning, however, which is good. Other than that, it’s been pretty quiet around here, =).

That’s been my week. What have you been up to?
