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
I’ve finally convinced myself it’s time to slog through the back half of George R.R. Martin’s A Dance With Dragons, so I’ve started that back up again. I’m also reading an ARC of writer friend Mara Valderran‘s Heirs of War. I read part of an earlier draft after Write On Con last year, and so far the story has only gotten better. I’m looking forward to finally getting to see how it ends!
I also have Liz‘s MS sitting on my computer, so I’d love to finally be able to finish it this week because it’s awesome!
What I’m Writing
Well, I started querying SHARDS, so I’m looking forward to putting all of my attention on FIRE. I haven’t decided if I’m doing NaNo this year yet, but I’m leaning toward yes because it’s NaNo and I have a fine tradition of participating and getting nowhere near 50k. If I do end up doing it, I’ll totally cheat and use it to finish my first draft of FIRE.
What Inspires Me Right Now
Bill Nye’s dance on Dancing With the Stars last night. Because the fact that he got out there and tried, despite having an injury, was awesome.
What Else I’m Up To
Working. As I do. I’ve been averaging about two days a week subbing, as well as trying not to pick up the cold that’s going around all the schools right now. Fingers crossed.
Also, my friend Katelynne visited this weekend and when we weren’t busy brunching with my roommate Bri, we were on the couch, marathoning Say Yes to the Dress on Netflix and eating far too much junk food. Which was probably for the best, because we had two storms back to back this weekend, and really, who wants to be outside in that if they don’t have to be?
And, of course, I’ve been reveling in all the fall TV shows. I watch a disgusting amount of TV, but as established in the previous paragraph, what else am I going to do?
What have you all been up to lately?
