What I'm Reading:I finished Breaking Glass by Lisa Amowi and it was really quite interesting. I liked it, despite the fact that each character in the book is deeply flawed. I appreciate that the author made them REAL, not perfect by any means. Sometimes this can have a negative effect because the reader can't relate to the MC whatsoever, and I definitely had some issues with it, but I thought the plot was well thought out, had some creepy moments, and was quite intriguing. Now I'm in the middle of Fire and Flood by Victoria Scott and really enjoying it.
What I'm Writing:
I got in 5k for Keepsake this past week and I'm really happy with how the story is flowing now. The first 10k are a hot mess, but I hit a stride. I've also been working on revisions for my Pitch Wars entry and I can tell you most assuredly that I hate 35 word pitches.
What Works For Me:
Music. Quiet. The sound of the ocean. It all depends on the kind of mood I'm in. I've found that if I close my eyes and pretend like I'm going to sleep my brain suddenly doesn't want to shut off and I'm flooded with words.
What Else I've Been Up To:
Getting ready for the hubby and I's mini vacay next week! I'm looking forward to the sand and sun and having some alone time.
