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 devoured all three of the books I got through this week, because they were all that good. I also loved how despite the differences in settings (Edwardian England, 19th Century France, Present Day U.S.), the themes were the same: all of these girls just wanted the freedom to live the lives they wanted, or to at least figure out what lives they wanted.
I just started The Red Queen’s Daughter, so I’m hoping to continue my streak of awesome reads.
What I’m Writing
Over the weekend I switched things up a little by dusting off OPAQUE (the sequel to SHARDS) just so I could have fun with something that might never see the light of day. Writing is writing.
What Inspires Me Right Now
Whatever your thoughts on #YesAllWomen over the weekend, I am inspired by how brave the other women sharing were. The things I shared are nothing compared to what some of them have gone through. Which is just disturbing and sad, when I think about it. I shouldn’t feel “lucky” because none of the guys who have harassed me on the street have decided to follow me, and I shouldn’t have to carry pepper spray because it happens often enough that I qualify statements like “I’ve never been followed” with “yet”.
…and that’s all that’s going to show up on the blog on that topic.
What Else I’ve Been Up To
Trying and failing to resist Memorial Day sales. Oops.
