WHAT I'M READING
I just finished reading Killing Ruby Rose, and you can find my review here. Finding great books like that is just one of the many reasons I'm enjoying this weekly blog hop! I'm not sure what I'm going to read next, but A Thousand Splendid Suns and We Were Liars are both waiting for me at the library. Oh, who am I kidding...I'm not going to be able to resist We Were Liars. It's next.
WHAT I'M WRITING
You can see my thoughts about writing here. The only thing I really have to add to that is that I had a great idea for one of the early scenes in Pyromancy: Crash. This is a wonderful development, because I haven't had ideas for a few weeks now. Ideas are pretty important if you're a writer.
WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW
Lists. Why is it so hard for me to make one when they make me so productive? Possibly because I prefer being lazy to being productive. But on days like today, when productivity is an absolute necessity, I realize what a wonder woman I would be if I enjoyed lists more.
WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN UP TO
We got up early to go strawberry picking yesterday. We picked over 30 pounds, and my husband wants to go again tomorrow. Sigh. Then I took my kids to the ocean with some friends. We hurried home to watch the end of the USA soccer game. At the 85th minute, we had to leave for my son's soccer game, and the score was still 0-0. By the time we got to the game and asked people what the score was, it was 2-1. That was a brutal few minutes, I think. Glad I missed it. My son's team won, and then we went home and made strawberry jam. I'm hoping that by this point your jaw has dropped in amazement because I fit so much into my day yesterday, because I can hardly believe it myself, and I was there. :)
