What's Up Wednesday 5/28/14

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've taken a break from reading due to my overwhelming amount of boredom and frustration. I just havn't felt like reading. We all have one of those weeks. Right?

What I'm Writing: Working on SoD edits and outlining a new story that's been rattling around in my brain. I registered for Camp NaNoWriMo to use July to write it. That will give me plenty of time to finish my edits and junk before I start writing. The edits are going painfully slow. I'm glad I got it done on paper first because going through the Word document and making changes is the worst.  But whatever, a writer's gotta do what a writer's gotta do.

What Inspires Me Right Now: 
 I love getting new ideas. It's like everything needs to stop until I write down all of the character traits and scene ideas. I haven't been this inspired about outlining a story since SoD for NaNoWriMo in 2012. It feels great.

What Else and I've Been Up To: 
I'm so bored. This waiting is killing me. I'm at the point where I just want an answer so I can move on. Being a Post-Grad is the worst. (A lot of things are the worst in my opinion, ex. socks with sandals.) Everything I do from this moment forward will affect my future. It's a scary thought.

What's up with you? How is your week going?

Happy Reading!

What I'm Reading: I'm still working on Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins. But I went to the bookstore last weekend and I picked up Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige and Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins. I devoured both books in three days. What I loved about Dorothy Must Die is the fact that it draws from the entire Wizard of Oz world from the other books. But this story adds a dark twist to the tale. I'm really excited to see the story and the world develop. I read Rebel Belle soon after. It's so funny. Unfortunately I didn't know it was part of a series, so I have to wait another year for the next book.

What I'm Writing: I got my laptop back! Whoot. I'm still working on SoD edits. I'm setting a goal to have the edits finished by Friday and type it up over the weekend. I'm going to send it to a friend or someone read it. I've been working on this for almost two years so it needs a second set of eyes before I do anything stupid like send it off. If anyone would just like to read it let me know. Once that's out of the way I'll start working on my next idea. Baby steps.

What Inspires Me Right Now: 
Getting things done. That's inspiration right?

What Else and I've Been Up To: 
I graduated college a week and a half ago.
Crazy right?
Sometimes I don't think it's real. Sometimes I think that the school is going to call me and say "Sorry Leslie, you didn't actually graduate. I'm going to have to take back the cap." It's weird. After high school graduation I knew what was next, college. Now that it's over I have my whole life ahead of me. I'm in the limbo stage with a couple of internship so I've been a little on edge these past couple weeks. Hopefully I'll hear news soon. Whether it's good or bad, I need to keep my chin up.

What's up with you? How is your week going?

Happy Reading!

What's Up Wednesday 5/7/14

Hello again. I'm back and better than ever. A weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I am ready to spend more time on reading, writing, and blogging. The WUW community has been so supportive and understanding over the year and I can't wait to finally be able to keep up with their blogs and work.


What I'm Reading: I've started Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins. I just started, but there are already so many feels. It feels good to get back into reading. Since I started school, I've hardly been able to read for pleasure. When i was in high school I would finish 2 books a week. I read 100 books in a year once. Those were the days. Anyway it will take me a while to get back into the groove of things.

What I'm Writing: Still no laptop. But I will be getting it back by the end of the week. Everything on my hard drive is safe thankfully. In the meantime I'm editing my printed out manuscript Suspension of Disbelief. It's going to be my new summer project. I'm actually excited to actually have time to develop the story more. Once I get my laptop back I'll start typing this new story idea. I hand wrote some of the first chapter and I'm really excited. More details later.

What Inspires Me Right Now: 
Breathing. Breathing inspires me. blerg. I'm not good with inspiration.  

What Else and I've Been Up To: I'm graduating in three days. Crazy right? i finished my last final and picked up the cap and gown. I still can't believe it. After four years of struggle, tears and stress I can finally breathe. I think the scary part of this is trying to figure out what I'm going to do with my life. I haven't worked on a show in a while and I'm itching to get back in the game. But I still need to make a living. I can't live at home with my parents forever. I'll figure it out, I'm sure. But right now I'm just enjoying the freedom.

That's my week. What's up with you? How is your week going?

Happy Reading!
