It's time for What's Up Wednesday!!!
WHAT I'M READING Are you sure that you want to know? It might take awhile... I'm currently working through Great Expectations. I'm going for a chapter a day but its more sporadic then that. I'm also reading Sapphire Blue by Kerstin Greir and Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly and... Yeah, I sorta started Inherit Midnight too. I try to keep a book of poetry and book on writing craft going at all times. Right now I'm reading The Collected Poems of Emily Dickinson and A Dash of Style.
My kids and I finished reading The Secret Garden this week and are now finishing The Princess and the Goblin. I had set it aside for awhile because it was challenging for me to read it in an entertaining way and I thought I should wait until they were older but they begged me to finish it :) I guess it isn't over their heads after all.
WHAT I'M WRITING (+ WRITING GOAL) I'm still making a spreadsheet to track several key elements in my fairytale WIP. It's already pages and pages long... It's helping me understand what needs to be done and learn the stories weak points but I just want it done already!
My goal is to work on it every day until it's done, even if I only have five minutes.
WHAT WORKS FOR ME Exercising in the afternoon. It might not sound related to writing but it gives me the energy to stay awake when I have time to write.
WHAT ELSE IS NEW I'm attempting a small container garden and a few flowers this year. I'm used to gardening where the ground stays frozen until April so gardening in Florida is a totally different adventure. I can't get over all the bugs and toads I find every time I turn my spade in the earth.
