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 reading a book of short stories chosen by Neil Gaiman, intriguingly titled Unnatural Creatures. Just my kind of book!
What I'm writing
I already posted about finishing the Darkworld series! Other than that, I've been inching forward with my YA fantasy. It's slow-going, but I'm getting close to the 2/3 mark!
What else I've been up to
I had a great time exploring London over the weekend - setting myself the ambitious task of bookshop-hunting with the help of Google Maps, and seeing as many sights as possible! I walked past the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey; saw Big Ben and the London Eye; watched a guy playing bagpipes in Trafalgar Square, got attacked by a pigeon in Piccadilly - and found the biggest Waterstones in the UK! Unfortunately, I can't share my photos yet because I rather stupidly left my camera cable back in Birmingham...but I'm moving out of my London flat on Saturday! Yes - my placement finishes on Friday. It's been a great month, and I can't believe it's flown by so fast! It's kind of scary that I'm now left in the no-man's-land of the UK graduate job market...again...but with my book coming out on the 10th October, I'll get some time to kick-start the promotion!
What inspires me right now
I'm inspired by life. Exploring London has re-awakened my adventurous spirit, and I can't wait to make the most of my time off to plan my next trip!
