Its time for What's up Wednesday!
What I'm Reading Yesterday I received a copy of Nancy LaRonda Johnson's new book Salted with Fire. I won it during her blog tour and I started reading it as soon as I opened the package. It is a poetry and flash fiction collection. So far I love it! My kid's and I have been reading the Tacky the Penguin books. Both the illustrations and the text are hilarious. They have to be some of my favorite books to read aloud. I sort of burned out on "Two Years Before the Mast". It's very informative but somewhat dry. I'm going to do better at it this week. I'm ready to finish it and move on to a different classic, maybe Anna Karenina.
What I'm Writing I had two migraines this week so I didn't get nearly as much writing done as I wanted to. I did figure out solutions to my remaining "plot holes" but that was it. My Read. Set. Write! goal for this week is to spend five hours on revisions. This round I am weaving in my plotting solutions and strengthening the scenes and structure.
What Inspires Me Right Now This week I have been inspired by Susan Kay Quinn's blog. She is blogging a book called "Indie Author Survival Guide" and it is quite informative. I am also inspired by fall and all that it offers (not the least of these being a Starbuck's pumpkin spice latte!).
What Else I've Been Up to I'm getting ready for company. My baby sister and my cousin are coming to visit! I haven't seen them, or any of my family, in over a year. I can't wait to show them around and take them to my favorite beaches and seaside towns.
Oh and I've also been promoting Becca Campbell's latest book, Empath. I'd recommend checking it out here. Her giveaway is still open for two more days :)
What have you been up to?
