What I'm Reading
I'm usually reading more than one book at a time. Right now is no exception...I've got three books going. E book: Requiem by Lauren Oliver. Physical book: Our Song by Jordanna Fraiberg. Audio book: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater.
What I'm Writing
Thanks to tweets from Elodie Nowodazkij and Katy Upperman, I'm joining in on the Ready. Set. Write. (created by Alison Miller) fun this summer. My goal is to plan, plot and research during the month of June. Then to start writing in July and August. I'm not much of an outline, I tend to outline every few chapters. I always have an idea where I want the story to begin and end but the middle is a complete mystery. I like to let my characters take me on a ride through their lives.
What Inspires Me Right Now
Incredible books like Golden, Second Chance Summer and Amy and Rogers Epic Detour.
What Else I've Been Up To
I decided to take time off from writing to get back to another love: reading. My current MS is with one of my CPs after a round of revision. While waiting on her notes I've been reading as many books (so far I've read 8 since Memorial Day weekend) as I can while also doing a beta read for a friend.
