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 still reading through the Harry Potter series. I've slowed down a lot since I've got back from Spain, but that's to be expected; I haven't got much time for reading now that I'm back home. I'm currently reading Goblet of Fire, which I'm enjoying a lot. It's amazing that I've read through the series so many times, and yet the story is still capable of stirring my emotions. I still laugh at the funny parts, cry at the sad parts and smile at the happy parts. Hopefully I'll get find time to finish it within the next week.

2. What I'm writing

I'm still working through the edits and revisions of my dissertation stories, and they're going really well. I got quite a lot of work done while I was sick, because I had time off work so I used my spare time to work on my edits. I've done the major edits on three out of the seven stories, so I'm right on schedule. This time next week I should have finished the major edits on all of the stories, and then I can move on to the minor edits. 

3. What else I've been up to

Not much, what with being ill for the last week. I lost 25 hours at work this week, so I'm really not looking forward to getting paid, since I already lost a lot of overtime hours while I was on holiday in Spain. Oh well, I'll just have to fit a lot of overtime in for the next pay day! As well as getting a lot of work done on my dissertation this week, I also spent a lot of time lazing around and playing The Sims 3 - it certainly took my mind off being ill! It was nice to have a rest, but I'm all better now, and ready to get back into my normal routine. 

4. What inspires me right now

I'm inspired by how well I'm doing with my edits right now. I seem to be getting through them quickly and easily, and I'm coming up with solutions for all of the major problems I had with my stories, which is great.

  1. Glad you're on track with your dissertation. Don't sweat the paycheck. It's only money, right?

  2. I love The Sims 3!! Sometimes I make my Sim spend hours writing a book when I should be spending hours writing a book and it's all meta like that! :)

    Good luck with the edits and dissertation but it sounds like you are in the home stretch!

  8. Ah, Harry Potter. I can't read a book a second time that I've read within the last twenty years. At least, not unless I'm editing it or analyzing it for study purposes. Those stories stick with me and I just get frustrated and bored. (Sad, right?) Still, that means all those elements are fresh in my mind, even years after reading them.

    Best of luck with your edits!

  10. Happy to hear that you're feeling better. Being sick is crummy, but being sick in the summer is just that much worse. But great job on getting so many edits done! You're making me want to reread Harry Potter now. I really do need to do that sometime. :-)
