What's Up Wednesday

“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 picked up Shadow & Bone this weekend so that I can finally read Siege & Storm. I forgot how beautiful the writing is. I read it so fast the first time, that all I really took in was story. I'm taking it slow this time, and I'm so glad. I also plan to have my review of The Madman's Daughter up later this week.

What I'm Writing: While I didn't meet all my goals for this week, I'm happy with my progress. I made it to the other side of my slump and knocked out both the scenes I needed to write. It's the editing that I didn't finish. And that's okay.

Goals for this week? I think I'm going to skip that editing and go back to writing the draft itself. So I'd REALLY like to finish the next part. We'll see if that happens.

What Else I've Been Up To: I finished my 30 day yoga challenge! More on that later this week. I'm also taking some vacation time--tomorrow through next Tuesday. I'm planning to finally finish unpacking the house before my husband and I head out for a couple days.

What's Inspiring Now: "Another Love" by Tom Odell. I heard it on the radio, and if my current WIP ever becomes a series, this song is perfect for later in that story.

What's up with you?


  1. I have Shadow and Bone in my TBR pile. I'll be sure to read it soon. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I just finished SHADOW AND BONE yesterday... So awesome! Enjoy your vacation time, and good luck with the unpacking. Also, I am selfishly encouraging you to KEEP DRAFTING. We've got a trade coming up one of these days, remember? :-)

  3. Hooray for yoga!

    Glad to hear you made it out of your slump! Have a good week!

  4. I really need to get around to reading Shadow and Bone. Everybody RAVES about it and I need to see what the hype is. Congrats on your progress and good luck reaching your goals this week!

  5. I'm curious about this yoga challenge - sounds fun! And possibly painful :)
