What's Up Wednesday 02

It's still Wednesday! lol

What I'm Reading
A horror manuscript (not mine) with a narrator who's revealed at the end to be schizophrenic. It's a cool premise with a twist that actually makes sense in the context of the story. It reminds me a bit of Ask Again Later by Chessie Zappia in terms of having a highly unreliable narrator. Now if only the writing in this ms was better... :/

What I'm Writing
Looking over my notes for Gates 2 and trying to compile them into a coherent plot. Easier said than done.

What Else I've Been Up To
I've started drinking green smoothies for breakfast in an attempt to have more energy and lose weight. Here's to hoping I can stick to it! Also, I'm obsessed with the SyFy show Face Off. It's so cool how these artists take their designs from concept to creation. Not unlike writing :)

What Inspires Me Right Now
All the amazing writers on twitter tweeting their word count goals. It makes me feel like a slacker, which then makes the urge to write that much stronger. Must accomplish ALL THE THINGS!!!

What's Up Wednesday 01

What I'm Reading
Prep School Confidential by Kara Taylor. LOVING it so far. Anne's voice is hilarious with just the right amount of snark. If you like mysteries and snappy protags, you'll love this book. Full review once I finish. :)

What I'm Writing
Just finished revisions on GoTaS. Revising on a deadline is insanity! But also exciting. But also insanity. Also, my husband doesn't seem to get that I can't come to bed because at night is the only time I can write/edit uninterrupted and has begun guilt-tripping me about it. *sigh*

What Else I've Been Up To
Since I just finished revisions, I'm taking a very short break in order to 1) appease the husband so he stops being melodramatic, and 2) to catch up on Supernatural. I've been watching seasons 1-7 on repeat for the last six months because TNT plays three episodes every morning. I figured this would be a good opportunity to finally watch season 8, because... when will I get another chance?!



What Inspires Me Right Now
Several amazing writers who I've teamed up with for various promo things as well as fantasy things and omg I can't wait to share it all with you guys :)

Aaaand now I should probably get working on that sequel.
