What I'm Reading:
I've slowed down the reading train a bit. I finished Star Cursed (LOVED, but the cliff hanger nearly killed me!). I'm in the middle of Defy by Sara B. Larson, but have been a little distracted preventing me from really get into it, or any other book for that matter. It's not bad, in fact it's quite well written, but my mind is preoccupied at the moment.
What I'm Writing:
And here lies the reason for my lack of reading. I've been writing, or thinking about writing, a lot lately. Not only have I been critiquing some great stuff by other awesome writers, but my own manuscript has taken over most of my life. I can't stop thinking about it, or my characters. Which is a good thing, it's helped a lot to move up the word count. Which is almost at 30k! Not only am I writing a new WIP, but I'm fixing up Restoring Casey as I get feedback from some betas. Exciting and exhausting times, let me tell you. But mostly exciting. I can't wait to see what the year holds with my writing.
What Inspires Me Right Now:
Debut authors! There are so many fabulous books coming out this year by debuts, and not only are these writers inspiring, but they're pretty dang good at what they do. People claim publishing is dying, but I don't see the wheels slowing down quite yet. It's a great time to be a writer, I think.
What Else I've Been Up To:
The weather outside has been far from frightful. In the high 40s, pretty spring-like with lots of sunshine. I love it. I wish it would stay that way. Me and the kiddos have been spending a lot of time outside with the pups, running around, frolicking, swinging on swings, you know, the usual warm weather shenanigans.
