What I'm Reading:
A Mad Wicked Folly, which I've wanted to read for quite a while and am so excited to dive into. I'm only a few pages in and loving it.
What I'm Writing:
Still working on my new WIP. I'm sooooo close to the end! I always get a wee bit lazy when I get there because I like to set myself up for failure cuz I'm awesome that way. Actually I'm a horrible procrastinator, but I've definitely gotten better over the years. If this were me last year I'd only have about 15k written so...progress!
What Inspires Me Right Now:
I saw this quote flying around Tumblr and it really got to me. I don't know it actually is anonymous or not, seems like more often than not people give credit to the wrong people for having said something profound and thoughtful. But either way I love it. And this is truly what I aspire to.
What Else I've Been Up To:
Tinkering. I don't know what else I can do while waiting to hear from agents. I got into Cupids Literary Connection Blind Speed Dating and got four more requests! Woohoo! But I also got a couple more rejections, boo! Back to the tinkering thing. I can't help but go back and reread Restoring Casey while waiting for responses. I keep going back and forth. One second I think it's great the way it is, the next I'm questioning every decision I've made in the story and think I suck at ALL THE THINGS. This really is the hardest part. I have to keep reminding myself that it's not the end. If nothing pans out with RC, I'll move on. It'll hurt, but I can do it. I've done it once before and I'll keep doing it until I get it right.
