I’m joining in the What’s Up Wednesday feature hosted by Jaime Morrow. I keep trying to make blogging a higher priority here, but lately writing has taken priority, plus a whole host of books I’ve borrowed from the library that are days away from being overdue.
What I’m Reading:
Yes, it’s an ARC that I borrowed from a buddy who went to BEA. And (please, don’t shoot me) so far…it’s slow going. It’s not grabbing me like the first did.
What I’m writing: Revisions, revisions, revisions. I’m making some major plot changes to The First Drop – trying to speed up the plot and thicken the characters and their relationships. Oh, and trying to make my MC’s Lover Boy a little less like a instalove creep. 🙂 I’ve gotten some amazing insight and comments from two of my favorite friends/beta readers so I’m tweaking things and shutting down the laptop at night feeling like I have a stronger story because of it.
What Inspires Me: I blogged about it last week, but the flowers that are blooming everywhere – including the side of a busy, congested road – are reminding me to see the positive in life.
What Else I’ve Been Up To: My cousin, originally from Texas, brought Sammie this placemat with the Presidents on one side, and the First Ladies on the reverse. Sammie is in love. We spend our meals talking about the Presidents, their wives, and where they lived. “Washington C” 🙂
Our local library system opened a new fancy-pants location pretty close to our house, so yesterday the four of us went to check it out. And, it is GORGEOUS! Windows everywhere and comfy seating = hello new writing space away from home! Amazing children’s section = hello storytime plans for us!
