WHAT I'M READING
I had such high hopes for Fangirl. I know most of you loved it, but I ended up skimming the last hundred and fifty pages because I cared enough to find out what happened, but not enough to read every word. I was disappointed, but it worked out because I didn't have a lot of time for reading this week. I'm just starting The Fifth Wave, and I'm hoping to take it slow.
WHAT I'M WRITING
Pyromancy Part 1 went to the first batch of beta readers late last night. !!!!! My goal for RSW was to edit a little every day, and so far so good. I went through the first third of Pyromancy Part 2 and reverse outlined. There are several threads that my cowriters and I let slide, and so I started a running list of things we need to add. I also found 2 chapters that were in the manuscript twice for some reason, which is awesome because painless deletion of words is always a good time. :)
WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW
Ready, Set, WRITE! I knew I had to get some writing done this summer, but the how and when was lost in a great, big ball of panic. I am typically quite unproductive in the summertime, but there are so many deadlines! So writing weekly goals and having a support group is exactly what I need. Besides, I'm slowly starting to recognize this group of people and their writing projects are starting to seem familiar. Doing things with friends is always more fun.
WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN UP TO
Someone at school and someone at church got together and said "Let's experiment with how many things we can add to the Crouse's schedule before Melanie cracks." So there's that. Then add 3 weeks with 2 of my children in driver's ed into the mix, and you'll have some idea of my life. Sometimes, I turn on netflix just to turn off the sound of my brain constantly repeating my to-do list.
