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
I read Pantomime by Laura Lam, which was absolutely fantastic - I'm now reading the sequel, Shadowplay. Totally unique YA fantasy!
I also read Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews, an urban fantasy that's been on my Goodreads list for over a year. I really enjoyed it, and I'm going to have to pick up the rest of the series at some point!
What I'm writing
I'm still Camp NaNo-ing away with my YA post-apocalyptic sequel (while the first book is in the hands of three other readers! *eek*). :) I've not yet reached the dreaded sink-hole in the middle where the story starts disobeying my outline, so the hard part lies ahead...for now, I've been enjoying re-acquainting myself with the characters and the world. And preparing to torment my poor characters in the next 60,000 words. *evil laugh*
What inspires me
Dare I say...this book? I had one of those wonderful days yesterday where I just typed 2000 words without getting discouraged or distracted. Those days are rare at the moment, which made it doubly precious.
What else I've been up to
Freelance work, editing for Entangled, answering a never-ending heap of emails, beta reading and critiquing... Not much else! It's been another challenging week with a fair few disappointments, so I've been trying not to dwell on things and just get on with what I can actually control...which is the words on the page.
