What I'm Reading: I just finished Taken by Erin Bowman, and really enjoyed it. In a break from my typical YA science fiction and/or fantasy trend, I'm reading a graphic novel called Fun Home by Alison Bechdel. A co-worker lent it to me, and while it's very different from what I typically get into, I've been enjoying it. It's nice to step outside of what I both read and write--gives me perspective.
What I'm Writing: I'm still working on my NaNoWriMo rewrite--which I'm currently calling Stars & Stripes. I've reworked the re-written beginning and think I love it. Now I'm back to the actual writing part. My family trip this weekend gave me a lot of fodder for interesting dialogue, which I've been taking advantage of.
What Inspires Me Right Now: This song, by Mumford & Sons. It's completely changed the course of my WIP.
What Else I've Been Up To: I mentioned that house hunting thing a couple of weeks ago and am hoping to have some good news next Thursday, so that's been taking up a lot of brain time. I also spent the weekend (like I said above) with family at a wedding in Spokane, Washington, and we had a blast! Good food, good friends, good times. Oh! And last night my department one a local Parthenon award for a social media campaign.
What have you been up to lately?
