What's Up Wednesday #3


What's Up Wednesday is a weekly meme run by Erin L Funk and Jaime Morrow and is a great way for readers and writers to catch up!

What I'm reading

I've been catching up with internship work this week, so no reading for fun. :( But whilst I was in Italy, I read Maria V. Snyder's Study trilogy, which was fantastic, and A Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness. I was completely hooked!

What I'm writing

I'm currently in the Editing Cave with the Manuscript of Doom, aka DARKNESS WATCHING, so no chance to work on my WIP's this week. *sob* I was doing so well with the #WIPMarathon, too, but alas, deadlines are calling, and I have only a week to get these edits done...*rocks in corner*

What else I've been up to

Well, I came back from Italy and had a ton of catching up to do - emails, messages, internship work, book reviews....and then I got the Major Editing Email from my editor so I was forced to retreat into the Cave! I also found out that my publishers want to move the DARKNESS WATCHING release date forward to the 10th October - which meant a lot of blog tour rescheduling! But it's OK now!

More plans: well, I'm spending the weekend with my boyfriend and his family, and then temporarily moving to London for my internship, which starts on Tuesday!

What inspires me right now

The thought of a light at the end of this tunnel, and getting to see my boyfriend and watch City of Bones this weekend!

    1. Thanks :) I am going crazy, but maybe I was slightly unhinged to begin with! :P

  5. Wow--busy time coming up, Emma! I hope the editing goes smoothly for you. I'm in the midst of edits on my WIP at the moment, but the only deadlines I have are self-imposed. Enjoy your time in London! :)

    Have a great reading/writing/editing week.

    1. Thank you :) I do self-imposed deadlines, too (though I've had to adapt my goals around actual deadlines!). Best of luck with your WIP!

  6. I like that you have a wordcount tracker in your sidebar! That's motivation right there.

    Good luck with edits and your newer project :)

  10. I have Maria V. Snyder's TOUCH OF POWER (from the Healer series) on my shelf and still need to read it. I also need to check out the POISON STUDY ones, too. Happy to hear you enjoyed them. Good luck with your edits! Are you the kind of person who works better under pressure? I know I am. And moving to London? So envious! Best of luck with that, too! :D

    1. I loved Touch of Power, too! I definitely work better under pressure, but it's still been a tough week. Thanks! :)
