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 read The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. It's a dark, gritty and totally addictive epic fantasy. Recommended!
I'm also beta-ing Jess's manuscript, the sequel to her debut, which she recently signed with Curiosity Quills! :)
What I'm writing
I finished an Alliance short story, one I've been attempting to get done since December! (I struggle with short stories for some reason. I've written two entire novels since starting this one!)
I also got out one of the YA urban fantasy manuscripts I wrote last year, the one I was working on when I got completely derailed by the Alliance series in August. :P The draft's in better shape than I remember, and I completely forgot that I have a series outline, so I'm considering revisiting this one for Camp NaNoWriMo! The problem is, I also revisited my YA post-apocalyptic duology, which is also less of a train wreck than I remember, and realised I could expand it into a longer series. Indecisiveness...
My writing goal this week: Decide which project to work on! :P
What works for me
Writing, writing all the time. I should know by now that I turn into an unbearable grump when not writing, seeing as I've been compulsively putting words on paper since I could hold a pen. I've pretty much concluded that any attempt I make to have a break from writing will end with me in front of the computer again. :P
What else is new
I started watching The 100, to see what all the fuss is about, and I'm hooked!
I'm also busy with freelance work, as I'm running a Spring Sale on my editing and proofreading services. :)
