What's Up Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Jamie Morrow and Erin Funk. A great way for readers and writers to keep up with each other. Thanks to tweets from Elodie Nowodazkij and Katy Upperman, I've joined in the fun of both What's Up Wednesday and Ready! Set. Write! (created by Alison Miller).
What I'm Reading
Thanks to the move (see below) I'm now 15-20 minutes away from home instead of 5 so I'll be spending most of my lunches at work in the break room. Which means more time for reading! I finished Invisibility today and started Keeping the Moon. I've got two more Dessen's lined up after this one.
What I'm Writing
Between Ready? Set. Write! and Camp Nano I'm hoping to get a good chunk of my first draft of WHEN THE WIND BLOWS done! My goal for July is 25000. About 800 words a day. I've got a good bit of the research done and a few plot points mapped out. But I'm a pantser at heart so I'll most likely outline as I go.
What Inspires Me Right Now
When I find it, I'll let you know. At the moment the only thing I can concentrate on is sleep. It's taken me almost an hour to focus just on this blog post. Okay, now make that an hour and a half. Oy!
What Else I've Been Up To
Boxes, boxes and more boxes! We moved this weekend. Packed up the old house Thursday night (photos below), moved it Friday, started unpacking and finished on Saturday. Busy, busy weekend. But it's done so I can get back to normal. At least by this weekend. With a co-worker out I'm pulling double duty. Lost of running from one side of the bank to the other. At least we have Thursday off! Big cookout planned at my parents with family, food and fireworks!
