What's Up Wednesday

What’s Up Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Erin L Funk and Jaime Morrow, and the idea is to let other bloggers know where you are with any writing and reading goals you may have.

1. What I'm reading
I'm on a Sarah Dessen kick at the moment, re-reading some of my favourites. I finished Last Chance on Monday night, and now I'm reading Just Listen.

2. What I'm writing
I've finished the character profiles for my dissertation, so now I'm working on the story outlines. I start writing the stories on Monday for Camp NaNo, so I need the outlines done by then. It shouldn't be too much trouble. 

3. What else I've been up to
Still mostly working and working on my dissertation. I've also been getting a lot of reading done, which is nice. There's nothing better than curling up with a good book!

4. What inspires me right now
Probably the books that I'm reading at the minute. I've been going back and reading old favourites, which I sometimes like more than starting a new book. It's nice to go back into the world of familiar characters. 


  1. Best of luck with your dissertation Laura, hope that it continues to go well for you when you get the stories up and coming, keep on going, you're doing great!

  2. You know, I've only reread a couple books in my lifetime. And mainly to remind myself of the story before seeing the movie. (Like LOTR.)

  3. Best of luck with the start of NaNo on Monday, it's hard to believe it will be July already! Sounds like you've got a great start with the profiles done and the outlines nearly there. :)

  4. The closest I've gotten to reading Sarah Dessen is watching the movie How To Deal which was based on That Summer and Someone like You.

    I love reading old bks too. It's nice to fall in love with old characters again.

    Hopefully your summer comes soon!

  5. YAY for working on your dissertation. Daunting but doable!
    I just read a SD last week-- Someone Like You. I loved it! I've read a handful of her work and have never been disappointed. She's great. Happy writing week!

  6. You're a real busy bee. Best of luck with Camp Nano. Rereading good books is fun.

  7. I love re-reading old favorites - they are definitely inspiring.

    And Yay for all your work on your dissertation!

    Hmm. Wonder if I should use CampNaNo as the impetus to get through my second draft of Champion in Flight. I've been a bit slow on my revisions.

  8. A dissertation and Camp NaNo - I'm impressed. Here's wishing you tons of luck and good writing!

  9. You are one busy lady! I can barely concentrate on my blogging and revising. Good luck with NaNo.

  10. Best of luck with your dissertation and Camp NaNo! :D

  11. Good luck with Camp NaNo and your dissertation! Sounds like things are really busy for you! And I agree that there's nothing better than curling up with a good book! :)

  12. All sounds well Miss Laura . . . . . . all we need is just a bit more sun.

  13. I just read The Moon and More. It's not my favorite Sarah Dessen, but was still good. Maybe I should follow your lead and re-read some of her other books.

  14. Yay for getting bits of your dissertation sorted. Get all the tough stuff out of the way now, and it'll be nice and easy when you get down to writing it.

  15. You sound really busy! Good luck with your dissertation and Camp NaNo! Have a great weekend!

  16. I'm a big Sarah Dessen fan. Have you read her new one? I haven't gotten it from the library yet (on a book-buying ban at the moment).

    Good luck with NaNo!

  17. Dessen seems to be all the rage this week. Several other folks I've visited are reading her too. She's also just awesome, so it's no wonder.

    Good luck with Camp NaNo
