What I'm Reading:
Remember my first What's Up Wednesday when I was trying to read a gajillion books at the same time because they all released on the same day?
Uhm, yeah, I failed miserably. But! But! That means this week I'm enjoying a fun read by one of my favorite modern YA authors.
I'm about a third of the way through Life After Theft by Aprilynne Pike and I love the voice and story. With no heat in the apartment, staying up late to finish a book probably won't happen, but I probably will finish this in the next day, easily.
What I'm Writing:
More of Em's story. I like writing from her POV. She's a little snarky, very dramatic, and it's fun to see Phoebe (the MC from my contemporary) through her eyes when they share scenes. I'm at 4K right now and am having so much fun playing with these characters.
What Inspires Me Right Now:
Last week, I was in two days of cadaver labs (about...9 bodies?) I'll be in another lab later this week. Some of these bodies are not "old." I'm reminded of how short a time we have on this planet. It puts everything into perspective.
I'm inspired because I'm freed from freaking out over the little things, at least for a tiny while.
What Else I've Been Up To:
|Post-it pen in action. I've only flagged up to Chapter 4 so far|
Remember how I gushed over The Summer I Became A Nerd? Well, I'm going to confess to being a major nerd right now. I'm going through the book with my handy-dandy post-it flag pen and marking every geeky hidden reference I find.
Yes, my post-it DOES say "duh." Some references are self-explanatory!
I bought two new Ravenscroft hair moons and have been having fun with silly moon hairstyles, including Sailor-Moon-esque mini buns.
|I love these little moons! They hold so well!|
And, incase you haven't figured it out from this post so far, I've had no heat in my apartment for the past week. Which would have been fine if it hadn't gone down to 34F the other night. I've been huddling under multiple blankets for the past week! Not too helpful for productivity.
That's my Wednesday. What have you been up to lately?
