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

Finished my latest Sherlock collection, and have started reading A Death-Struck Year by Makiia Lucier. This was kind of a random choice for me, and while I can’t speak to the accuracy of the historical events, I will say that so far I’m really enjoying it. The writing is quite nice, and I think the feelings of confusion and confused-fear the characters are going through are quite genuine.
WHAT I’M WRITING

My new inspiration has still been blossoming, so I’ve done a vague outline to capture the scenes I don’t want to forget, and have started thinking/writing up some character sketches. I have not, however, done any editing for the last week (eek!) so I think I’m going to have to force myself to get back into that soon.


WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW


The thought of a week off! Next week is vacation, and I’m very much looking forward to just having some time to relax, read, and write. I’m really hoping the days will be productive, at least somewhat =)


WHAT ELSE I’VE BEEN UP TO
Was up visiting family again on the weekend for my nephew’s fourth birthday party. It’s crazy how quickly kids grow up…he’s starting school in September, and that is just an insane thought!
So what have you been up to?

    I just added A DEATH-STRUCK YEAR to my TBR pile. It sounds really good! And like nothing I've read yet, so bonus! That's a smart idea to jot down notes on scenes you don't want to forget. Seems like a good way to combat the temptation to dive right in, while still ensuring you don't lose all that inspiration. Does that make sense? Have tons of fun on vacation! 😀

    Yay to your upcoming week off! Enjoy it to the fullest 🙂
  5. I'm always amazed at how fast my kids are growing up. In september, my youngest will be starting kindergarten!!! So all four of my kids will be in school. Crazy!
    Enjoy your week off!
  6. Ah, the little ones do grow so fast. My kiddo is about to celebrate his 7th birthday, and he starts second grade next month! Seems like he was just a baby, but he constantly reminds me he's a "big guy." 🙂

    Have a great vacation and enjoy your week!
