What's Up Wednesday!

I saw this meme over at the super fantastic Jen Pickrell's blog, and since I literally couldn't think of a single interesting thing to blog about this week, I'm doing it!  Also, it's just a really cute way to keep up with that everyone is up to.

What I'm reading

The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines.  I take book recommendations very seriously, okay?  And when I saw multiple tweets from people who just couldn't quit this series, I knew I had to check it out.  I'm just starting the first one but I'm pretty pumped about it.

What I'm Writing

Woe is me.  I'm actually editing right now, so I haven't gotten a chance to write anything new.  But I want to, and more importantly, I think my soul needs it.  Once I get through these edits, I plan on writing something even though I don't know what yet.  Remember last week I talked about summer reading?  Well, there's also nothing I love more than summer writing.  And it is time, my friends.

What Else I've Been Up To

Besides reading over everything I've written, editing and beta reading, nothing much.  Work has been busy, as usual.  My normal TV shows are all off the air for the summer, although True Blood starts soon and I'm hoping things are better than they were last season.

I think I've mentioned that I'm a huge movie lover, but only when I actually go to the movie theater.  It's hard for me to sit on my couch and watch a movie, but I'm still not talking about how many times I went to see The Avengers last year.  It's possible I'm the one who made it the biggest movie ever, I'm just saying.  But this summer is packed full of good movies.  I saw Iron Man 3, which was amazing but not as amazing as Star Trek Into Darkness.  In the next few days I'm going to see Now You See Me, which gives me major I-Wish-I'd-Thought-of-That feelings.  And then the new Superman comes out!

So, yeah.  You'll know where to find me this summer.

What Inspires Me Right Now

Well, my best friend since I was eleven is having her second baby this coming Tuesday.  And it's a boy!  Her first child is a sassy, amazing little girl and I'm so, so excited to meet this little (not that little, he's almost 7 pounds already and he's still hanging out in there! He'll be showing up via C-section) guy!  I'm inspired by my best friend for being so calm in the face of having two kids, because I'm overwhelmed by my two cats.  But I'm also inspired to write really good books that these two, along with my niece, (who is 17 and the best kid ever) can read, love and be proud of.


  1. hmm...I may have to check out these Abbi Glines books - I've heard a few people talking about them.

    Did you ever watch any of the cartoon The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes? So entertaining!

    And I am overwhelmed by ONE cat.

  2. I know what you mean about not being able to write new words. I have a new idea that I'm just dying to get to, but have been working on revisions. Now that I have a REAL deadline, I feel like I can't cheat. I'm still writing down lots of notes, though.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend and good luck with your goals!

  3. Thank you, Sara! It is hard but luckily my agent is asking good questions, so I can see the book getting better. :)

    Good luck on your revisions, too!
