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 His Last Bow. I now only have one Sherlock collection left to read…it’s on my shelf already, but I’m trying really hard not to start it for a while. I don’t know what I’ll do when I finish it, I love these stories so much!

I’ve slowed on The Storyteller, which is fine. The beauty of short stories is that you can pause between chapters with no problem. I’ve also started reading my book for Freedom to Read week, which is coming soon! I’ll talk more about that on the actual week, =)

WHAT I’M WRITING + WRITING GOAL

Finished my first draft! I’m now going over the story again, which I always do right away just to make sure the story reads like, you know, an actual story. It’s going pretty well so far…I’ve identified a few problem areas, so after this read-through I’ll be able to spend some time brainstorming how to best address those issues.

WHAT WORKS FOR ME
This week I’m going to again say that using the comments section is working really well for me. During this read-through, it’s so easy to quickly mark areas I know I’ll need to work on later. It’s great!

WHAT ELSE I’VE BEEN UP TO

My husband has a few days off this month, so we’ve started a new house project…the floor in our office was just painted subfloor that looked awful. So we’ve started laying some new floors. It’s just laminate, but it looks amazing compared to what was there before!

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