I recently joined a weekly blog hop created by sisters Jamie Morrow and Erin Funk to help writers connect on this writing journey. I thought What's Up Wednesday would be a good way for me to review my progress during the week and stay motivated to read and write (especially now that I have some accountability!)
So, here goes...
WHAT I'M READING
I'm almost done reading Killing Ruby Rose, the debut novel by Jessie Humphries. I love the main character, Ruby Rose, and her saucy personality. I've laughed out loud several times because she is just so dang funny, and this is a YA Contemporary thriller! Jessie has done a great job of weaving in the danger, romance, and teenage humor.
WHAT I'M WRITING
I am neck-deep in my YA dystopian novel (part one of a Trilogy). I told my hubs I only wanted two things for Mother's Day -- a clean house and time to write. Thankfully, he let me do that most of the day on Saturday while he and the boys mopped the floor. Win win!!
WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW
My children. I just want to create something they would be excited to read. I want them to think, "I have the coolest mom, ever." So I'm taking it easy on the romance and leaning more towards exciting elements and a fast-paced plot. We'll see what happens.
WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN UP TO
Oh, boy. Where to begin...I have baseball games coming out the ying yang. We are in our final week of regular season baseball before playoffs begin, and I am about to vomit baseballs. If I have to sit and watch another baseball game, I might scream. Literally. Unfortunately, we've had a game every night this week and will continue to have one every night except Friday. Ahhh! Can't wait for the season to be over!
Also, my little man is turning 5 and wants a Frozen party. If you've checked out my blog at all, you might have noticed I have a page dedicated to Parties. I LOVE planning and throwing parties, so I've got to get crackin' on this Frozen bash. I'll keep you updated on how it turns out.
Mostly, I'm ready for school to be over. I'm tired of driving kids back and forth to school, I'm sick of the homework and projects, and I'm done with baseball! (Did I mention that already?)
Hope you're having a good week! What are you up to?
