What's Up Wednesday
It's time for 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've been super-busy with freelance work and critiquing, so I haven't had much time for reading this week. But I ordered my copy of Ensnared by A. G. Howard, the last in her Splintered trilogy, so I'm looking forward to reading that!
I did read Victoria Schwab's short story, Leave the Window Open, which I loved. Next on the list is Firefight by Brandon Sanderson.
What I'm writing
Alliance Book 5! All the words! I'm at over 30K already, but I kind of cheated a bit because I wrote about 6000 words of this in November when I was supposed to be working on my NaNoWriMo book. :P But let's face it, I'm addicted to this series. I'm at that borderline-obsessive stage again where I'm wandering about not really paying attention to the real world because I'm thinking about the plot all the time.
My writing goal this week: More words on Alliance 5!
What works for me
Being insanely busy. It's weird, but I seem to get more work done the more I have going on. The months where I'm juggling a ton of freelance work, critiquing, and other things outside of writing are also the months when my wordcount is highest. I think it's because typically, I want to write whenever I'm supposed to be doing something else. :P
What else is new
Freelance work is back in full swing, and I'm working on some exciting projects! Other than that, various self-publishing-related things (eeeep!). Driving myself crazy trying to learn formatting. My street team have already seen the cover and blurb for Adamant, and a cover reveal/pre-order promo is coming later this month! Sign-ups are open here. :)
