What's Up Wednesday

Welcome to What's Up Wednesday, a weekly meme run by Erin L Funk and Jaime Morrow. Here's what I've been up to this past week!

What I'm reading

This week, I read some great books by fellow CQ authors - Wind-Up Hearts by Stan Swanson and Missing Parts by Ethan Mawyer.

I also read Into the Still Blue, the conclusion to the Under the Never Sky trilogy, and I loved it! Now this is how you end a series! :D

Finally, I read The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson, a gripping thriller set in London about a killer imitating Jack the Ripper and a girl who can see ghosts. Creepy stuff!

What I'm writing

Forging ahead with the WIP, and I've also been working on my next one, which I plan to draft next month for Camp NaNoWriMo! I also finished edits on Walking Shadow (Darkworld #2) and sent them to my editor! *eek* One more round of edits left, then a proofread. Getting there! :D


What inspires me right now

My next WIP. Which I'm not supposed to be writing yet. But inspiration won out! I'm kind of in love with the two main characters already. :)

What else I've been up to

The usual - work, manuscript reading, watching Buffy, travelling up north to visit my boyfriend.

  8. I really kind of think you have to follow motivation and inspiration where it leads. Yay for a new WiP! It sounds like you are making awesome progress on the writing front in general, so that's good.

    INTO THE STILL BLUE was such a great book. And you're so right about finishing the series so well. I only wish every author would do the same. Have a great week!
