This is late but here it is!
What's up Wednesday
What I'm Reading Um, I'm in over my head in books right now... I'm still working through my chapter a day classic and a Prayer for Owen Meany (which I like but in small doses). I've also started reading an advanced reading copy of a book by an amazing author. I will reveal who and what in a later post :) Oh and I started Paranormalcy by Kiersten White even though I told myself I really should wait. Oh well. What I don't list on my Wednesday posts is that I also have an inspirational non-fiction book and a book on writing going at all times. So.... lots of reading!
What I'm Writing I am revising my first book. I was going to call it Awaken but I have changed the name to Slumber, for now anyway. (Yes, I know the titles are opposite of each other but both of them really do fit!) I didn't do well on my goals this week but I made progress in spite of that.
My goal for this week is to spend an hour a day on revisions. This may or may not be done all at once.
What Inspires Me Right Now Today I am inspired by like minded friends.
What Else I've Been Up To Where do I start? My son got his cast off today. He still has a decent limp but the doctor thinks it is healing well. We celebrated by going to the beach. It was raining but after being stuck inside for three weeks we were not going to let that stop us! The beach is a magical place in the rain.
I had an amazing time at the homeschooling moms retreat I attended. It also involved the beach. Since I didn't have any little people with me I was able to go out past the surf and swim. I love being eye level with the waves.
School is starting soon whether I am ready or not so I am trying to get everything in place for that. I'm also getting ready for company. The guest room doubles as a toy room so I'm sure you can guess what shape its in!
Besides those things I have been faithful to my workout plan for another week. I'm hoping I can stick to it when my company arrives.
Now for Alex Cavanaugh's Insecure Writer's Support Group.
I am surprisingly not insecure this month. I know I have a lot of work to do to get where I want to be with my writing but I can see myself slowly heading in the right direction and it is extremely motivating. I'm sure insecurities will sneak up on me eventually but for now I'm going to pretend that they are gone for good and just enjoy writing.
