WHAT I'M READING: I just finished reading The Maze Runner by James Dashner (review coming soon!) Would definitely recommend it the plot definitely keeps you guessing. I'm also still slowly but surely making my way through George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones. It is taking so loong since I've watched the show so I already know what is going to happen. Plus I'm reading it on my nook and I bought the e-book box set so I never know how close I am to finishing the book because it only tells me how close I am to finishing all 5. I realized I still had a little over 200 pages left last night and wanted to cry.
WHAT I'M WRITING: I feel like I'm talking about this too much in one week, haha. I'm currently hard at work turning my characters into people for The Homecoming Court and I la-la-love them! I love when they start to feel real and their personalities start guiding my writing. I think creating realistic well-developed characters is both one of the hardest parts and the most rewarding parts of writing. I don't want to give too much away just yet, but I can give you guys the picture I've used to model my MC, Devon Halestorm!
WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW: Maya Angelou. I was and still am quite sad about her passing. She has always been an inspiration of mine, but over the past week since she passed I've been reading all the articles people have been writing about the amazing life she led and how she was able to use her writing in such powerful ways, and that has really pushed me to keep working to improve my writing and to dedicate my time to it so that I might have a chance to make a difference too.
WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN UP TO: I went to the Zoo! It is not much of a zoo, to be honest. But it has penguins which is all I really need. And I got to hang out with some pygmy goats!
I am also still in mourning and shock over last weeks Game of Thrones episode. No spoilers here; if you watch you know what I mean. /Heavy sigh.
That is what's up with me this week! How about you all?
