“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. Be sure to visit Jaime's blog to add your post to the link list!
What I'm Reading: I did decide on Between the Devil & the Deep Blue Sea. I plan to get it tonight and start reading! Right after making chili and going through all of today's What's Up Wednesday posts.
What I'm Writing: Guys. How is it already the final week of Ready. Set. Write!? This has been such a wonderful writing summer for me. Thank you Alison, Katy, Jaime, Erin, and Elodie for putting it on and to those of you (like Tracey) who wrote with me almost every night.
As far as goals go, my goal this summer was to write. Which I did. My goal last week was to finish part 5 and watch some Battle of Shiloh reenactments. Success! Even bigger? I made a good start of figuring out how to fix part five. But now that the writing intensive is over, I hope we'll all still keep writing together!
I'm hoping to finish this draft (including fixing part five and making some tweaks to part four) by the end of September, at which point I will send it along to my critique partners. I'd like to have a beta-ready draft by the end of October. Not sure if I'll make it, but we'll see. So for those of you who've expressed interest in reading, let me know if you want to be on that October/November list :)
I'll keep updating on Wednesdays to share my progress, and I'll be around on Twitter.
What Inspires Me Right Now: Fall is almost here, and it's my favorite season. Soon there will be all sorts of fall-themed photos on my Instagram; I guarantee it!
What Else I've Been Up To: House stuff, work stuff, life stuff. Nothing terribly exciting. I'm planning to finally install a threshold under our basement door to help with the flooding. That's about it, friends!
