It is time for What's Up Wednesday!
What I'm Reading I read an ARC of Legacy Code by Autumn Kalquist. I hope she writes fast because I really want to know what happens next! I also read My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick which had one of the best fictional families in it that I've ever seen. I'm currently reading Revisions and Self Editing by James Scott Bell and a book that I am beta reading.
What I'm Writing I joined the YA Buccaneers Spring Writing Bootcamp. If you want to see my goals go here and my first progress update here. I am finally making progress Slumber. Dialogue is being added, info dumps are being woven in. It feels amazing!
Here is an excerpt:
Something rustled just off the path. It sounded just like dried leaves in a breeze. I reached for the sewing scissors I always wore on a chain around my neck. There wasn’t a hint of wind. A rabbit would be a good explanation. What else could it be? My imagination filled in several possible answers. I could just keep walking and pretend that I hadn't heard anything. It might be easier that way. Easier but I needed to face whatever it was, even if it was nothing more than a rabbit. I turned, peering through the growth. I was about to turn away when something gray caught my eye. I barely caught a glimpse before it slipped into the shadows. Whatever it was it had been too high from the ground to be a rabbit. I dropped my scissors back under my blouse. Gathering my skirts, I ran.
I'm sure it will change before its done but I'm so happy with the progress!
What Else I've Been Up To I can't really think of anything... unless you count getting the kids to the dentist. I'm beginning to feel like we live there.
