What’s Up Wednesday is a weekly meme geared toward readers and writers, allowing us to touch base with blog friends and let them know what’s up. Should you wish to join us, you will find the link widget at the bottom Jaime’s post. We really hope you will take part!
What I’m Reading
I finished Beowulf. I also finished The Elite and was generally unimpressed by it. Right now I’m reading Breaking Beautiful by Jennifer Shaw Wolf and while I like it, I don’t love it. Yet.
What I’m Writing
Hey, remember last week when I said I’d probably have a really productive week because I didn’t get very many hours at work? JUST KIDDING. I ended up working a ridiculous amount of hours this weekend, which is happy-making for my bank account, but not so much for my word counts.
I was able to polish up three more chapters of SHARDS, then realized I should add another two chapters, so I brainstormed those and started on them. This week I want to finish those two chapters, and get to as many of the remaining chapters (about ten) as I can in two and a half days off this week.
On my other day off I want to finish rewriting Chapter Three of FIRE. I got about 300 words into it on Friday, so unless I write a ridiculously long chapter, I only have about 1500-1700 words left. If I finish the chapter, I’ll try to post another snippet next week 🙂
What Inspires Me Right Now
Raven was joking on Twitter about how inspirational it would be to cast Henry Cavill as one of her characters because she’d keep writing just to picture him, and I actually sort of did cast him as Vantandal from SHARDS for that reason so I joked we should include pictures of him in our WUW posts so I figured I should deliver 🙂
And I would be a horrible person if I didn’t link you to this post.

Just so you can appreciate the strangeness of the Pacific Northwest, this is something I saw during my frolicking last week:
