Due to my seven month absence, I totally missed the What's Up Wednesday boat. Lucky for me I rowed out in the middle of the sea, waved my absent blogger flag and hopped right on. What's Up Wednesday is a weekly meme for readers and writers to give updates on what's happening in their lives. If you want to find out to find out more check out Jamie Morrow's blog and sign up.
What I'm Reading: I just finished Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood. I loved it. I requested the sequel to to come to my library, but it won't get here for another couple days. Right now I'm torn between reading Anna and the French Kiss or The Diviners next. Both are two completely different books, but it might be nice to get out of the paranormal world every once and a while.
What I'm Writing: I recently finished my slight revision of my NaNo novel Suspension of Disbelief. I mentioned last year that I had to stop and go over it because I didn't like where the ending was going. Well life came along and punched me in the face, so I didn't get started until two weeks ago. Anywho the first 3/4 of the book is fixed. Now I have to tackle the ending. Endings are hard. I've always envisioned how I wanted the novel to end, but getting there is the challenge. It's like one decision the main character or any character makes affects the entire ending. And right now I'm at a crossroad. When you think about that, it's a lot of power. I need to choose wisely. My goals for this week is to finish this draft. I'm getting myself in NaNo mode, because frankly this is the only way it's going to happen.
What Inspires Me Right Now: I've been reading a lot this week for inspiration, but nothing has been sparking. Since Suspension of Disbelief is a superhero novel I've been watching lots of clips from Smallville and other superhero shows. But really nothing is popping out screaming INSPIRATION! But I've been working through it. Lately I've been trying to write with music. I put my headphones in and listen to the John Williams Station on Pandora. It's kind of nice to listen to movie scores, except most of the time the music does not fit the scene and draws me out of the story. I think I just need to make my own playlist.
What Else and I've Been Up To: Since I've been back home not much. I've been
Well that's it. What have you guys been up too?
