What I'm Reading:
A few days ago, I finished Such Wicked Intent by Kenneth Oppel. I thought it was a great follow up to This Dark Endeavor, and I can't wait for the final installment in the trilogy. Now, I'm very gradually poking my way through Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo. I wish I could sit down and gobble the whole thing up all at once, but things are busy so it's been a few pages here and there. So far I'm enjoying it.
My goal last week was to add in some research that I did. I met my goal although the
particular chapter I worked on is going to need some serious revising.
I'm aiming to get 2000 words done this week. The boys are headed to a football game this weekend, which means some writing time for me. Hopefully, I can get back into the swing of things!
What's Inspiring Me Right Now:
The Oblivion soundtrack. We watched the movie the other night and really enjoyed it, despite its flaws. I absolutely loved the music, especially the main theme. I've been listening to it while dejunking our basement, and it's making me want to write.
What Else I've Been Up To:
We're trying to sandwich work around the house between two weekends of fun stuff while my husband is on holidays. Here's a quick list of what my week has included: a wonderful parcel from my awesome sister, my husband's birthday, cupcakes, coffee with the in-laws and an old friend of ours, the bookstore, out for supper at Boston Pizza, watched Oblivion, chocolate covered strawberries, wine, coffee porter, visiting friends, Irish cream and sticky toffee pudding ice cream cones, Chinese food, watched Star Trek Into Darkness (which was amazing btw), went to Winston's English Pub, Fuller's London Porter, Stir Stick Stout, Guiness beef stew in a bread bowl, reorganizing and dejunking our house.
So how has your week been? If you'd like to share, go ahead and sign up on the linky at Jaime Morrow's site. We're winding down for Ready. Set. WRITE! now, and I hope all of you have had a successful week working on your WIPs. I apologize in advance for the likelihood of being very slow at responding to comments and getting to other blogs this week. :)
