What I’m Reading

Right now I’m reading Kimberly Derting’s latest, The Taking, which is really good so far. It’s more like The Body Finder than The Pledge, genre-wise. (Paranormal as opposed to fantasy.)

What I’m Writing

What Inspires Me Right Now

Right now…I’m feeling a little out of it. I rang up one of my former professors at Other Job the other day and oh hey look what I’m doing with my degree…

What Else I’ve Been Up To

Working + waging war on mosquitoes.

  1. I can so relate to the whole “Look what I’m doing with my degree” thing. Nothing. I’m doing absolutely nothing with it. I live in a small town and frequently run into former students and former colleagues from when I last taught at the junior high here…five years ago. I get that “Are you teaching?/What are you doing now?” question all the time. Fun, fun, fun. Hope this week is better than last, with less mosquitoes and less jerky customers. 🙂

    1. I’ve started actually physically cringing when people ask me, “So when are you going to get a real job?” Because a) yes, cobbling together enough to live off of between multiple part-time jobs that offer me zero benefits is totally something I chose to do, b) I like having the number of hours I work per week being subject to illness, personal days, sales, and various acts of God because I just like to live on the edge like that, and c) ummm, all of jobs are paying me money to do them; how are they not “real”?

      On the plus side, I guess we’re just practicing for when we’re authors 🙂

  2. I really liked The Body Finder series.

    I hate feeling like I’m not far enough in my life/career/etc. It’s frustrating, for sure.

    Hope the rest of the week is more awesome.
