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 To Kill A Mockingbird. I think I would sum up this story as lovely. It covers serious subjects, and has several dark scenes, but there is such sweetness to it, and already as I think back on it, I just want to give a happy sigh. Just…lovely.

I’ve now started Meg Rosoff’s Just In Case. Rosoff writes some odd stories, but I just love her writing, and this is the only novel of hers I haven’t read yet.

WHAT I’M WRITING + WRITING GOAL

I finished the first draft of the short story I was working on last week. I also adapted an old short story of mine, changing it into a story in a totally different genre. It required a lot of research, which was a lot of fun!

This week, my goal is to edit both of these short stories.

WHAT WORKS FOR ME

For Christmas, my husband got me a subscription to the magazine Poets & Writers. It’s a magazine full of writing articles, along with writing contests and advertisements for writing programs. Admittedly, it’s a little upsetting to see all the ads for writing studies in Italy and Paris (how fantastic would that be?), but it’s a great motivator to just imagine partaking in these amazing programs.

WHAT ELSE I’VE BEEN UP TO

I’ve been taking Finn to a baby program at the library, and it ended this week. I’m not sure if I’ll join again in the spring, but it was good for us to get out of the house once a week this last while.

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