What's Up Wednesday



What's Up Wednesday is a weekly meme geared toward readers and writers, allowing us to touch base with blog friends and let them know what's up, put on by Jamie Morrow and Erin Funk. If you'd like to join click on the links above!

What I'm Reading:
Dream Thieves! Dream Thieves! Dream Thieves! Finally! So far I'm loving getting reacquainted with all these FEELINGS inducing characters. I also read The Sea of Tranquility and wow. Just wow. I don't even know where to begin with that one. It was beautiful, heart breaking, and emotionally draining. Loved it. I'm getting lucky with my books lately, it seems.

What I'm Writing:
Currently drafting my NaNo project while letting Restoring Casey sit for a bit. I think I know which project I want to focus on during NaNo, but I might go in a completely different direction by next week and start something brand new. You never know.

What Inspires Me Right Now:
Just about everything. My kids, life, writing, reading, music. I'm finding inspiration in many things, which makes writing a bit easier (or as easy as writing can get).

What Else I've Been Up To:
I've lived in the US for most of my life. My family moved here from India when I was six. And now, after twenty one years, I'm finally getting my citizenship! I've had my green card for many years, but it's about to expire and I realized I couldn't make excuses anymore. The main being the cost. My husband told me it was worth it for me to finally became a citizen, so we saved up and now I'm just waiting for them to let me know when I need to come in to take the test! I got fingerprinted a few weeks ago, which was a very exciting and unique experience. Did you know they don't use ink anymore? It's all electronic. Pretty futuristic, people. Anyway, once I take the oath my family will be throwing me a US themed party, so I have lots of cheeseburgers and wings to look forward to :)

What have you been up to?

  9. Congrats on becoming a citizen! My friend became one a few years ago, and it seemed like such a cool, if stressful and expensive, process. Have fun! And how have I not started Dream Thieves yet??? Must rectify that this weekend. :)
