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 finally finished Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire last week, so now I'm onto Order of the Phoenix. It's awesome, of course - I love how angry Harry gets in this book, because it shows that he's not perfect, and I would be angry too if I was in his position! I got a big chunk of reading done yesterday, which was nice, because usually I only fit in a few pages every night before bed.
2. What I'm writing
I just finished the third drafts of my short stories for my dissertation, so it's getting quite exciting now because I can see the finishing line! I'm going in to university today to see my tutor and see what he thinks of my work so far, so hopefully he won't have too many problems with it! Then I just need to do final edits and then work on the more technical sides of the dissertation - the abstract, bibliography and the critical analysis, which will definitely be the hardest part!
3. What else I've been up to
It was a bank holiday on Monday here in England this week, so I got three days off instead of my usual two, which was very nice! I mostly spent them catching up on my dissertation work and reading, but I've enjoyed them all the same.
4. What inspires me right now
I'm inspired by the fact that I'm nearly finished now - just one final push and my dissertation will be done, and then I'll be able to relax and not have to worry about deadlines or edits.
