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:
Bring The Rain  by Lizzy Charles. I really enjoyed her other two books, Effortless With You and Perfectly Messy, they were super cute contemporary reads. But there was some serious slut shaming in this book that really hurt my brain, and I couldn't quite get over it. She did try to address it, but was too little too late for me. If anyone has any reading suggestions, I sure would love them!

What I'm Writing:
Not much of anything. I picked up some speed this week, but I'm nowhere I'd like to be with my word count. I'm also thinking about revising an old manuscript I can't seem to forget about. I has some querying success with it, but nothing panned out. I think I figured out what wasn't working and I'm ready to go back into that world.

What Works For Me:
Not much of anything lately. Sometimes you just have to let the writing slump run its course.

What Else I've Been Up To:
Well, this happened:

Our family is very excited to welcome our fifth and final child into this world come September! One of the reasons I haven't been able to do much of anything lately is because I'm still getting over the morning sickness phase. I'm officially in my second trimester, but it's taking a while to start feeling somewhat normal. I've been waiting to announce until we saw the little person ourselves, which we did last week. He or she is doing great and I'm hoping the rest of the pregnancy continues smoothly.

What Have You Been Up To?


  1. Congratulations! What lovely news. :D

    Have a fantastic week!

  2. Congrats! How fun! Hands full and hearts full!

  3. Congratulations! :) Have a great week!

  4. Huge congratulations to you and your family.

    If you want to go back to the old MS, I say go for it. Go with your heart ^_^

    Have a brilliant week!

  5. Aww, congrats on the baby, Prerna! That's awesome news. :D Hope things go much more smoothly now that you're in the 2nd trimester. And that you continue to pick up speed with writing. I know what you mean about an older story that you can't seem to forget. I've been thinking about one of my projects as well. Trying to stay focused, though. Have a great week! :D

  6. Happy, happy baby news! Congratulations! Best of luck revisiting your old MS. I did that over the summer with "the book of my heart" (it's currently on sub) and even if nothing comes of it, I'm so glad I made it the best it could be. You can do it!

  7. Huge congratulations, Prerna! That's so exciting, and I think you've officially earned the title of Super Mom. I hope the morning sickness clears up soon and that in the middle of all your prep for the baby's arrival you'll find a little time to write!

  8. Congratulations! Good luck with the morning sickness.

  9. Congratulations!!!!! Hope you feel better soon and have a wonderful week :)

  10. Oh my goooosssh congratulations!
