What I'm Reading:
Oh, you know, stuff. Recently I've read Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers, which was a great historical fantasy. Love the idea of nuns training kick-but assassins. I also read Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry, which was a well written contemporary, although didn't quite live up to my expectations. Now I'm about to dive into Star Cursed the second book in The Cahill Witch Chronicles by Jessica Spotswood and I'm super psyched for that one. And I recently purchased Defy by Sara B. Larson, so that's up on my list too.
What I'm Writing:
I'm proud to say I'm over 20k into a new project, which I started the week before Christmas. It's a contemporary, which is surprising because I wanted to kind of get away from the genre and try something different, but this idea struck me upside the head and I just knew I had to write the words these two characters were filling up inside my head. My goal is to get the first draft done by Valentine's Day!
What Inspires Me Right Now:
The New Year. It's so full of possibilities and excitement. Setting up new goals, forgetting our past failures and focusing on making ourselves better. This year especially because I feel like I'm getting closer and closer to accomplishing my writing dream.
What Else I've Been Up To:
We got this little guy on New Year's Eve! His names is Mugsy Bugsy Pickett. He's a shih tzu/ boston terrier mix and is adorable. We're right in the middle of potty training which is, if you've ever had a puppy, quite taxing to put it politely. Although he's picking things up quickly and I'm already teaching him a few tricks. The kids love him and with that cute little face, who wouldn't?
So, what's up with you guys?
