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 of Jaime’s post. We really hope you will take part!
What I’m Reading
The Casual Vacancy is unquestionably due back to the library Friday, which means I’ve got a fire under my butt to finally finish it. So I’m plugging away at that. I also read Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins last week and Reboot by Amy Tintera. While Demonglass was only okay for me, Reboot was awesome and I highly recommend that.
What I’m Writing
Uh…not much? I’ve only written like 3000 words since my last post two weeks ago, but I’ll go into that below. My goal for the rest of July is to keep fitting words in wherever I can, even if it’s only a small (by my usual standards, I guess) number. When things settle back down at the beginning of August, I’m hoping to make ridiculous progress in order to meet my goals for the summer.
What Inspires Me Right Now
The weather has been really, really nice lately, and right now B and I are staying with friends who live close to the lakes, so we’ve been going down there. I feel like the lake would be a really nice place to read or write, if it wasn’t crawling with college students every time we go. But I can dream.
What Else I’m Up To
B and I moved out of our apartment last week and are staying with friends until we move into our house (which we’re renting) at the beginning of August. I’ve been working five days a week, and when I’m not working, I’ve been cleaning. It’s been hard to fit words in between all of that, hence the small numbers over the past couple weeks. Which is actually making me antsy, because writing has become such an important part of my routine. I’ve also been doing a lot of hanging out with friends, making up for being such a hermit during the school year, so that’s been fun.
Basically, I’ve been doing a lot of everything except writing.
