It's time for What's Up Wednesday!
What I'm Reading I would be reading The Near Witch but my Amazon order is being infuriatingly slow. Maybe today will be the day it finally arrives. I'm still reading The Great Gatsby for my chapter a day classic. This makes it week three and its only nine chapters. Please don't do the math... I love the book but I seem to only fit in a few pages at a time. My read right before I go to bed book this week is Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman and my read for a bit during nap time book is Stranded by Dani Pettrey. The kids and I are reading The Courage of Sarah Noble by Alice Dalgliesh.
What I'm Writing I'm still revising Slumber. I finally made some progress! I thought I had my book for NaNo picked out but now I have another story in my head and I don't know which one to use. The first one is a YA fairytale retelling that I've been dying to write for over a year now. It is a bit dark and the setting is encrusted in snow and ice. The other is a NA contemporary about a young military wife (wonder where I got that idea lol). Is it still NA if the main character is married? I haven't seen any like that yet but some of us do get married really young and balance the whole figuring out who we are period with marriage and children. Oh decisions, how I loathe thee.
What Inspires Me Right Now Yesterday I went for an early morning run. It was still dark. I heard a man and his son outside talking about the stars and the constellations. I think he may have been in uniform but it was to dark to tell for sure. I thought it was wonderful to see a father taking whatever time he had to spend with his son. Time is precious.
What Else I've Been Up To My husband and I have been watching Sleepy Hollow. I didn't expect to like it so much but it is a very entertaining show. I look forward Ichabod's dialogue all week. Its amazing! During the afternoon's I've been trying to get the kids outside to play. It is still warm out but the sea breeze is just cool enough to make it feel like fall. I love it! I wish I didn't have to be inside but its much easier to make dinner when one is indoors.
What have you been up to?
