The lovelies Jaime Morrow and Erin Funk came up with the WHAT’S UP WEDNESDAY meme. Here’s Jaime’s explanation about it: “It’s similar in some respects to the Currently… post, but it’s been whittled down to only four headings to make it quicker and more manageable on a weekly basis. You’re invited to join us if you’re looking for something to blog about, a way to let your blog friends know what’s been going on with you.”
WHAT I’M READING
Going to pick up book #16 of 2014 tonight. Not sure which one yet, though …
WHAT I’M WRITING
So … we had 2 snow days last week. TWO! Which means kid was home and I didn’t get any writing done on those days. Then I was down on Friday. I looked at my manuscript and felt it was off. I couldn’t place what was wrong, but it was off … so I spent the day trying to fix the plot and got nowhere. My goal was to write at least 15k words last week, but I got 11k words. Not bad, but not what I wanted.
On Sunday, I met with my girls for our monthly write-in, but instead of writing, I fixed my plot. I wrote 2000 words of plot points and I think it’s fixed! So, that’s that.
I was 17k words into Breaking Fences but now I cut 14k words of that and practically started over. I wrote 3502 words yesterday and I’m hoping to get around 4k words today because it seems tomorrow will be another snow day, and then there’s Winter Break next Mon and Tue, which means no writing.
My goal to finish this draft by the end of the month is looking very unachievable right now :( BUT, even if I don’t get to finish this manuscript this month, progress is progress – and I go have until the end of March to finish it before it’s due to my editor. I just wanted to be ahead of schedule :)
WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW
Ugh, again, not the cold and the snow …
Serious now. The cover of Breaking Fences. Oh, yeah. My designer sent a mockup to me on Monday and I’m soooo in love with it. Now I’m fixing the blurb so she can add that and finalize it, and then I’ll schedule a cover reveal. Can’t wait!
WHAT ELSE I’VE BEEN UP TO
Ah, I also bought a new sofa! It’s going to take 3 weeks for because we asked a different fabric from what they had in store, so it takes more time. But it’s okay. We have lots the guest bedroom mattress on the floor with lots of pillows around. The daughter is loving it lol I bet she’ll be sad when the sofa arrives lol
And I’m freaking out that the ARC of Playing Pretend is in the hands of book bloggers … and that it’s only 2 more weeks until it’s out to the world! *flails*
Now tell me, WHAT’S UP WITH YOU?
