Hello long lost blogging friends. I'm back! At least for today: “What’s Up Wednesday” is a weekly blog hop by Jaime Morrow and Erin Funk. From Jaime: It’s similar in some respects to the Currently… post, but it’s been whittled down to only four headings to make it quicker and more manageable on a weekly basis.
What I'm reading: I'm in the middle of re-reading The Raven Boys. I was on a bus ride on Monday and didn't have anything to read. My phone connection wasn't working, so I couldn't download anything new. Since I'm writing a third person, multi-perspective novel right now, I decided to reread this masterpiece. I'm falling in love with these characters all over again. If you haven't re-read it--I really recommend it. There is so much I missed the first time through!
What I'm writing: FINALLY I have time to write again. I'm working on my NaNoWriMo draft from last November. Okay, really I'm completely rewriting it. I'm about 30k in, but had to stop as we were moving. Right now I'm rereading what I wrote and am almost done with that. I'm participating in Ready. Set. Write! (a fun summer writing intensive being hosted by some of my favorite people). Check it out and sign up here. My goal is 3,500 words a week--500 a day if I can. Once I see if that's attainable, I may adjust. We'll just have to see how it goes. :)
What else I've been up to: Work has been kicking my butt over the past week. We had three events we were working on all tied to the CMA's. I finally had a chance to decompress yesterday, but I'm still in a bit of a fog. I really need to recharge. I work in communications, but I'm actually an introvert. All this time with people has drained me. I'm hoping alone time reading and writing will help me get back to myself. Also, I started up hot yoga in April, and I love it. So I think that might help some, too.
What's inspiring me now: Actually, The Raven Boys. These characters and the way the interact is just so real. I'll have them on my mind as I write this summer!
