In case you’re new to WUW, it’s a blog hop created by my sister Jaime and me, intended to help writers keep in touch with one another. If you’d like to participate, please sign up on the linky below, and be sure to spread some writerly encouragement around to at least a few other people taking part.
What I’m Reading:
Last night, I finished Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi. While I loved Shatter Me, this last book in the series was a disappointment for many reasons. I'll leave it at that.
Next, I think I’ll read Unhinged by A.G. Howard. I’m hoping I enjoy it as much as Splintered.
What I’m Writing:
Jaime and I had our mini writing retreat over Google Hangouts on Saturday, and it turned out to be a very productive day. I rewrote the scene I mentioned I was struggling with last week (once I figured out where to slot it) and I also got a nice chunk of other revisions done. There was plenty of tea, lots of helpful conversation, way too much candy, and loads of fun. We plan on having another joint writing session this Thursday, seeing as this one went so well.
What Inspires Me Right Now:
Setting aside Thursday for another writing session with my sister, of course.
What Else I’ve Been Up To:
Jaime and I started what we refer to as “The Roswell Challenge.” Seeing as we’re both fans of the WB show Roswell, we challenged each other to watch at least four episodes a week while on the treadmill. It’s been quite a while since I last watched this teen sci-fi gem, and I’m enjoying it all over again. Besides Shiri Appleby’s tendency to wear mom jeans (hey, it was the 90s) it’s actually still a great show, and it’s providing the motivation to get off my duff and get some exercise.
For St. Patrick’s Day, my family watched Waking Ned Devine (hilarious) and The Secret of Kells, the latter of which has become a tradition in our house. It’s one of my favourite movies because the art style is just so unique and beautiful. If you want to read more about it, check out my post from last year here. Supper was a team effort. My husband made Guinness beef stew, my son baked Irish soda bread, and I made an Irish tea cake with lemon yogurt on top. Okay, so the lemon yogurt isn’t Irish, but it’s delicious and much healthier than some sugary topping. There was also additional Guinness for the hubby and me.
I know we’re about ten years behind on this, but my husband and I started binge watching Veronica Mars this weekend. With all the hype about the movie, we thought it was high time to try it out. It probably won’t come as a surprise that we’re addicted. Yes, my husband too. We watch almost all of our shows together. I’m already dreading the end of the series, but I’m looking forward to seeing the movie, especially since I’ve heard good things about it.
So what’s up with you these days?
