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
Over the weekend I read my friend Lyla Payne’s book By Referral Only, a totally fun New Adult read that I really needed after Allegiant and Divergent. Now I’m in the middle of both The Three Musketeers and Northanger Abbey. To be totally honest I’m finding The Three Musketeers a little boring; I much preferred the darkness of The Count of Monte Cristo. Northanger Abbey is pretty good so far, though.
What I’m Writing
I’m a little behind, but I’m planning a 3k day today, so I should be all caught up before I go to bed tonight! It helps that there’s always so many people on Twitter working and/or down to sprint. And really, I just can’t wait to finish this first draft. First drafts are my absolute least favorite part of the process.
What Inspires Me Right Now
Another song! This time it’s The Band Perry’s “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely,” which I listened to on repeat for several sprints over the weekend. (My iTunes library play counts ARE woefully skewed, thank you for asking.)
What Else I’m Up To
Um…staying inside? It’s November, which means it’s a beautiful day outside when there’s no wind with our rain (or rain with our wind), and it’s dark by 5pm.
There’s a reason Seattle has a history of writing more cumulative words for NaNo than any other region.
