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:
I’m still reading Dreams of Gods & Monsters, which should come as no surprise considering the size of it. Some of that reading took place by candlelight since our power not so conveniently went out the other night. Very atmospheric.
What I’m Writing:
This has been one of those odds and ends sorts of weeks. I finished up my book map (which is kind of gargantuan) and I’ll hopefully sit down and give that a much more thorough look soon. I went through my notebooks and compiled a list of details I need to add or change in my ms. Most of these are little things that aren’t essential to the plot but still need to be incorporated or fixed. I also did some research and started tackling some overused words and phrases. Like I said, I fiddled with a little bit of everything. Now I’m ready for round two of revisions to officially get underway.
What Inspires Me Right Now:
My new Lenovo ideapad (see below).
What Else I’ve Been Up To:
The hubby and I finished the third season of Veronica Mars, and then watched the movie while snacking on mini Mars bars. That seemed like the most fitting treat for the occasion (besides marshmallows). We both enjoyed it and really hope they come out with another one. I’m sad that we burned through this crazy good show so quickly. Question: Why is there no Team Wallace? C’mon Veronica, you can’t tell me you didn’t at least consider it once or twice!
We also went to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier and loved it. Then we got caught up on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., something we couldn’t do before because we’d been warned that it contained major movie spoilers. Last week’s episode was unbelievable. I was so-so on parts of the season (although overall I love the show), but now they’ve really amped up the plot. I’m still feeling kind of gobsmacked to be honest.
So that was my week. How's yours going?
