What's Up Wednesday is a weekly blog hop hosted by Jaime Morrow and Erin Funk in the hopes of bringing writers together on our crazy journeys. If you're interested in finding out more about this blog hop and/or joining us you can read more about it here!
WHAT I'M READING: Someday I will tell you that I have finished Game of Thrones...but it is not this day. I just keep finding other things to read! I think I'm probably going to buy Lindsay Cummings' The Murder Complex that just released last week for my Nook. Seems everyone is talking about it so my interest has been piqued.
WHAT I'M WRITING: Outlined chapter 5 of The Homecoming Court yesterday and I hope to outline chapters 6 and 7 today. I'm getting really excited because I'm getting to the fun part! And I'm really loving this outlining thing, because my outlines tend to be just really rough drafts. I end up including dialogue and some description. It becomes more like a script and it is going to be really easy for me to type up the actual chapters later this week.
WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW: When I was reading up on The Murder Complex I saw it was a debut novel and whenever I find debut novels I like to look up the author. Turns out Lindsay is 22 years old (I believe her twitter said she's about to turn 23). She is just under 2 years older than me and she has all this hype around her first book and I just think that is so cool! It has inspired me to push forward with my writing in hopes of maybe the same thing happening for me in a year or two!
WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN UP TO: I saw How To Train Your Dragon 2 last Friday and it is SO beautiful. If you haven't seen it you really need to. Right now. I'm also finally mostly recovered from my post Game of Thrones hangover (you can find my reaction to the finale here). And one of my best friends is moving back to the west side today so I'm super excited to have her back for the rest of the summer!
In other news. Its storming here. I'm pretty sure Allendale is about to be washed off the map. But the black cloud of death appears to have moved on for now. *crosses fingers*
That's it for me. How have you guys been this week?
