What’s Up Wednesday is hosted by Jaime Morrow. It’s a great way to catch up with writer friends, and meet new ones! Check out her blog for the scoop!
What I’m Reading: I’ve started 2014 off with a bang, reading wise. My first two reads have been 5 stars!
I’m starting this book next, and have seen some rave reviews from friends, so I’m excited!
What I’m Writing: I’ve added a few thousand words to my current WIP over the past few weeks. I’ve kind of hit a scary point though. I’m around 3/4 through my outline already, but only at 26K. I know there is at least 4-5K I need to add in the first chunk as of written and developed a few characters/plots better. But…outside of that??? This is an adult contemporary romance story, but I’ve got a YA novel word count. I’m hoping things fluff up as I keep chugging along. I hope!
What Inspires Me Right Now: As I mentioned in my 2014 goal post earlier this week, I took a step out of my comfort zone and went to an in-person local writing group meeting. It happened to be the first meeting of this group, so it was a casual thing. Perfect meeting to get my feet wet, right? It was small, but the group has real potential, and it’s at my favorite writing location. Best of all…I may have met a new writing buddy. We hit it off and are practically twins on a lot of aspects of our lives. We’re already working on setting up a writing date in the very near future! I felt such a high after leaving the meeting. I’m full of fire and ready to write. 🙂
What Else I’ve Been Up To: I’ve got cabin fever like crazy, you guys. This cold weather. It’s killing me. I know! I know! I live in Missouri, and have my whole life, so I should deal with it. But, gah. Cold weather with young kids is totally different than cold weather without.
We’ve been trying to get creative to keep everyone from going crazy. Last night we brought some snow inside to play with and both kiddos seemed to enjoy it. Emmett just kept trying to figure out what it was.
