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 finished Gypsy and really loved it. (Also, it’s on sale for $.99!) I’ll post a review of that one later this week. I also made a little progress in Anna Karenina (why am I still trying at this point?) and finally read Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas and am now experiencing a serious book hangover.
Now I’m reading Stolen Away by Alyxandra Harvey. Which I’m not enjoying as much as A Breath of Frost, which might be because I was really looking for a good historical fantasy when I read that one. But the voice is really good so far.
What I’m Writing
I wrote yesterday…and that’s it. That’s all I’ve gotten since last week. I’ve been writing lots of OTHER things, but none of them are writing-related, unfortunately. (They are, however, related to having a roof over my head and food in my refrigerator, so there’s that.)
What Inspires Me Right Now
THE SCHOOL YEAR IS ALMOST OVER. And by “almost”, I mean we have a month left. BUT STILL.
What Else I’ve Been Up To
Subbing…a lot! Which has been more exhausting than usual because kids, man. Like I said, we’re getting to the end of the school year, plus it’s state testing month, plus the weather the past three weeks has been either ridiculously nice or ridiculously gross. So, basically, everything is crazy pants. It’s just a fact of life.
I went home for Mothers’ Day. Getting home Friday night was…an experience. My train ran someone over ten minutes from my station, so we were stuck there for almost two and a half hours because the train was part of the crime scene. And then the train got in three minutes before the VERY LAST FERRY was supposed to leave, but fortunately the VERY VERY AWESOME Washington State Ferries employees radioed up to hold the boat a couple minutes when they saw me running from the train. So my streak of terrible luck with Amtrak continues.
Fortunately, the rest of my weekend wasn’t this eventful.
