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 just finished this last night. It was great! I haven’t read many historical fiction novels that tie into the Civil War AND politics. It was like reading one of my presidential biographies mixed with an awesome story and characters.
I started this last night before bed and so far it’s super cute!
What I’m Writing: I’ve been plugging away on the rewrite for The First Drop. I’m hoping to start and finish chapter ten today. I’ve been making good progress (by my standards) so I’m feeling pretty good! Also, I’ve got a new idea whirling around in my head. It’s still pretty basic, and without a lot of actual plot stuff, but I’m letting it grow in my mind. Hopefully it will become the thing I write after TFD is done. 🙂
What Inspires Me: This quiz from YA Highway on the type of writing retreat that’s best for you. I got a beach retreat. I am seriously looking into doing a writing retreat either this year or next year. I think it would be a fun way to get a ton of words down without the normal daily life to-dos and also have some fun time with writing friends. Now I just need to get busy planning it I guess!
What Else Is Going On: SPRING IS COMING! We’ve had some good weather this week, so we’ve been outside soaking it up A LOT. I’m working on my 30 before 35 list that I’m going to start this Friday on my 31st birthday.
