It's time for What's Up Wednesday!
WHAT I'M READING
I almost feel like I should replace this title with "What I'm Cooking" as I am cooking Thanksgiving foods for the foreseeable future. I did manage to do some reading that wasn't cookbooks though!
I read a NA contemporary romance and it really wasn't my sort of book. It wasn't as original as I was hoping it would be. I finished reading the Creepy Hollow trilogy by Rachel Morgan. The first two books were so much fun but the third, while still good, felt rushed to me. I loved the series and did not want to be rushed along. My chapter a day classic is Great Expectations, which I am loving, and my kids and I are reading The Princess and the Goblin. This week I hope to read Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch.
WHAT I'M WRITING (+ ONE WRITING GOAL)
The only writing I did this week was on my son's homeschool portfolio. It is thick enough to be a novel but not nearly as fun to work on. Now that it is done I can get back to something more creative, like my fairytale novel :)
My goal this week is to work on my revisions/rewrites for Mirrors and Ice every day for fifteen minutes.
WHAT WORKS FOR ME
Coffee with cream and a tad of maple syrup with a dash of cinnamon on top. It is the perfect writer's brew.
WHAT ELSE IS NEW
I am attempting to make a pie out of this massive fairytale pumpkin that the lady at the fruit stand told me was the best pie pumpkin ever. I hope she's right... I have canned pumpkin on the pantry for back up, just in case I explode the pumpkin or something.
