WHAT I’M READING:
I finished a reread of AN ABUNDANCE OF KATHERINES (John Green), partly for research, mostly for pleasure. You guys, I heart this book SO MUCH. It may just be and my nerdy math self, but I laughed on practically every page. So GOOD!
Now, I’m reading 100 SIDEWAYS MILES. Andrew Smith is one of my new favorite authors and well, this book is AWESOME so far.
WHAT I’M WRITING: I’m revising two stories, kind of. One I worked on in August and September, sent out to readers, and just got back a lot of incredibly insightful and encouraging feedback. I have two big things left to revise on that along with a few little things and I am going to do that next week and then maybepossibly send it out. Like, query it. I plan to have tons of wine on hand.
In the meantime, I just finished a read through on the story I drafted last summer and am ridiculously in love. Guys, I am all about character and this story features three MCs who I just completely and utterly adore. I’m crazy excited about revising, which btw, I’m starting TODAY. J
WHAT INSPIRES ME: Soccer. Between my husband’s games, my daughter’s games, the EPL games on the weekends, International Friendlies, and my must watch Real Madrid games, I watch a teensy bit of it. And I love EVERYTHING ABOUT IT. That, and I can count watching soccer as research for the current WiP? #winwinwinwinwin
WHAT ELSE I’VE BEEN UP TO: See above. ;)
Actually, life is not all soccer. I’ve been tutoring a lot. And very much enjoying being a SAHM. And last Saturday, the husband and I took the 15 year old and a friend to see Modern Rock Fest—an all day concert featuring New Politics, Capital Cities, Bear Hands, Somekindawonderful, and more. The music was beyond amazing. And my daughter and her friend got to do a meet and greet with one of the bands, met the lead singers for two others, and well…we had an AWESOME time.
Oh, and well, not to talk about soccer AGAIN, but the husband’s boys team won a huge match last night and clinched the conference championship in the process! #soproud!!!
What’s up on YOUR Wednesday?!
