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 just finished reading Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor, which was amazing, of course. Now I'm reading Scarlet by Marissa Meyer, which I'm actually enjoying more than I did the first one; maybe it's just because I'm used to the world now. I wish I had more time to read - I'm not getting through many books at the minute!

2. What I'm writing

Still not much right now, but I have big plans for what I'll be writing over the next few weeks. I have three separate deadlines coming up for short stories, and I am determined to meet them! I've planned it all in my timetable, and that means I mean business! I've gone far too long without writing, and I don't intend it to go on any longer.

3. What else I've been up to

My sister had her engagement party on Sunday, which was fun. She got engaged a few weeks ago now, but her and her fiancé have been trying to find a time when both families could get together. This didn't happen until last Sunday, which was slightly unfortunate because the weather was terrible and we'd all planned on having a barbecue. It ended up being a really good day though; we just grilled everything inside instead.

4. What inspires me right now

The ideas I have for the aforementioned short stories I need to write, and my motivation to start writing properly again. I really have missed it! I can't wait to get started. 
Also, I'm getting really excited about winter and all the fun it will bring; Halloween and Christmas being the main events. I'm one of those weird people that tolerates summer and absolutely adores winter, so I really love this time of year.

  3. I'm kind of looking forward to winter, too. But I have my summer vacation next week, so not until after that...

    I haven't read either of those series, but I hope to one day change that.

    1. I seem to have messed the typing up there. . . I think my mind is failing as I get older or my hands are too far away from my brain.
