What's Up Wednesday

Image
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.


It's broken down into four headings:

1. What I'm Reading

I finished Order of the Phoenix the other day, so now I'm reading Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.

2. What I'm Writing (+ Writing Goal)

I'm quite pleased with the writing I've done this past week; it's not a great amount, but since I've spent the last few months writing nothing at all, I'm pleased with the couple of pages I have done this week. 
My writing goal for next week is to open up my NaNo edits again, and get to work.

3. What Works for Me

Getting back into writing slowly, rather than trying to do too much too fast. I think if I'd dived in headfirst and tried to do loads straight away, it would have put me off writing for longer.

4. What Else I've Been Up To

Celebrate the Small Things

Celebrate the Small Things is a weekly bloghop now hosted by Lexa Cain. The idea is to post anything you want to celebrate from the last week, no matter how small.

This week I'm celebrating: 
- So I got this book for Christmas (it's awesome, some of the prompts are hilarious). I haven't really had that much time to sit down with it (or motivation) but last night while I was waiting for my dinner to cook, I decided to try out some of the prompts. I filled the first page in about 5 minutes, and it felt so good! I haven't written properly in months, and even though this was just light writing using a few prompts, it really made me happy. I've missed writing, and I feel this was a great step to help me ease back in. 
- I bought The Sims 4: Outdoor Retreat last week and I've been enjoying playing it in my spare time. Sometimes it's nice just to sit back and play a game!
- I've also been watching How I Met Your Mother from the beginning again. (I like to pre…

It's broken down into four headings:


1. What I'm Reading

Still making my way through the Harry Potter series, I'm now on Order of the Phoenix. This is probably my 10th re-read of the series, and I'm still noticing things I haven't noticed before.

2. What I'm Writing (+ Writing Goal)

I haven't done much writing lately; I'm happy enough that I'm blogging again. I do miss writing though, and have plans to get back into it, even if I'm only writing a tiny bit. I need to go back to my NaNo novel and continue edits from that, and there are a couple of other projects I'd like to get to work on. My writing goal for this week is to write something, anything, in the next week, whether it's ideas, edits or a full blown story.

This week I'm celebrating:
- Being back blogging! I haven't blogged since early December, and it's been awful! My partner Jamie and I moved into a house together on the 12th of December, and we've only just had the internet set up. Never move house at Christmas! Sorry I haven't been visiting you guys, but I promise I'm back for good! No more blogging breaks here! 
- The new house is great - we're only renting, so it isn't fully ours, but it's nice having somewhere that is just ours, if only for the time being. 
- I'm also celebrating having this week off work - I went to Centerparcs (a holiday resort here in the UK) with my mum and my sister, and we had a great time. 

I'm looking forward to seeing what you've all been up to; it's great to be back!
