What I’m Reading – For fun I jumped into Cassie Mae’s How to Seduce a Band Geek, which I’ll probably finish today 😀 And then last night I couldn’t sleep and opened like five different books on my kindle because I didn’t want to turn on my light to read Band Geek (hubs was sleeping) and started The Archived. HOLY AMAZINGNESS. Will probably read everything Victoria Schwab writes. Ever.
What I’m Writing – EDITS!!! I want to pull my hair out. I’m not sure if writing is harder for me or if I’m just a better writer so I’m pickier. I’d like to hope the second. BUT – I’m just about ready to send my MS to my editor (of total awesomeness) at Albert Whitman Teen – THE BOOK THEY BOUGHT LAST WEEK ON A PARTIAL!! Woot!! In Pieces should come out in hardback fall 2015 😀 I’m in SHOCK that my third hardback is on the books. Just…wow…
What Else I’m Up To – Enjoying summer. Enjoying my kiddos being home (for the most part). Working out hard, playing hard, not sleeping as much as I’d like b/c the sun is still up at like 11, and it’s light all night now.
Mike and me overdose on one TV show at a time. We finished Fringe a couple months ago, and Luther last month. FLEW through the first season of Elementary while mourning the distance between Sherlock seasons. And then Mike jumped into Eureka, which is slowly growing on me. A little cutesy for my taste, but good, and I don’t care about it so much that I can’t write while hubs watches. Psych is next, except for the fact that I might need to start watching Elementary again. Also. I want Lucy Liu’s wardrobe for that show.
What’s Inspiring Me Now – I have a few ideas I’m DYING to write and not just because I want out of edit hell 😉 Actually worked longhand and mapped out the next book. I have like two chapters written just to see if I could get the voice right. Longhand is ONLY for book plotting/mapping 😉 BUT it definitely helped me get excited about writing the story.
The other thing that’s inspiring me are my FRIENDS. Seriously. I have the best writer friends. In just the last week – Steph Campbell, Nyrae Dawn, Cassie Mae, Christa Desir, Jenny Proctor, Melanie Jacobson, Morgan Shamy, Kaylee Baldwin and Allie Brennan have all done something awesome – maybe without even realizing it.
And the THIRD thing that inspires me is that Amazon keeps sending me emails about these books 🙂 I LOVE seeing my Kate and Aidan in such good company –
What have you all been up to?
