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 read Allegiant in about eight hours, and while I didn’t love it as much as the first two books, I still loved it. Mostly because of Four’s chapters. I could’ve used more of those.
…but I’ll have to post an actual review at a later date.
Next I’ve just got to finish up my notes on Liz’s MS, and then I’m going to reread Divergent and Insurgent, which I meant to do before Allegiant came out but then The Bitter Kingdom was due back to the library. (I posted my review on Sunday. I had a lot of feelings about that one, too.)
What I’m Writing
Progress with FIRE has been hit and miss. I wrote about 4000 words of first draft a couple weeks ago, and then last week I worked 55 hours and managed a whopping 63 words.
And as far as SHARDS goes, I sent out a small batch of queries and now I’m WAITING. I’ve been remarkably zen about the whole thing, but that might be because I’ve just been too BUSY to think about it.
What Inspires Me Right Now
Getting ready for NaNo, because I just can’t stay away. Except this year I’m going to rebel by using the month to finish my rough draft of FIRE.
What Else I’ve Been Up To
Well, since the last time I did one of these posts, my sister turned 21 and we went to dinner at the Space Needle to celebrate.
I also put together my Halloween costume, although I haven’t quite figured out where/when I’m going to actually wear it yet.
