Now, on to What's Up Wednesday!
What I’m ReadingI just finished THE MOON AND MORE by Sarah Dessen, and since there’s no better time to read her books than summer, I picked up THE TRUTH ABOUT FOREVER for the 849758943709437th time. This is the book that really made me realize what I wanted to accomplish as a writer (and that I could actually do it). So this book is close to my heart and I love it just as much every time I read it. <3
I’m also working my way through ANNA KARENINA. I started it last summer and read 300 pages before falling away from it once school started. I’m picking up where I left off (after refreshing my memory with a few online summaries). Let’s see if I can make it to the end this time!
What I’m Writing
-Write at least 3,000 words for my WIP, The New World. (I’ve been trying to do 500 a day, so this leaves some wiggle room for a day off or a lower word count day)
-Fill in gaps in The New World outline where necessary. (The last third of the book has a bare-bones outline, if that.)
-Write at least four entries in my journal. (I’m trying to keep a running log/journal of my life, just for me, to keep me self-aware.)
What Inspires Me Right NowI’m still riding the tail end of my Sarah Dessen-inspiration wave I wrote about last week. I’m also having such a fun time writing my WIP this week because some of the scenes are based on my own life. It’s fun to relive my past and have the power to alter it as I see fit.
What Else I’ve Been Up ToWorking 8-5. Contemplating a classic Disney movie marathon for this weekend. Pinning up a storm on Pinterest. Trying to exercise regularly so I’ll have rocking-looking arms and legs by the end of the month, when I’ll be wearing a strapless bridesmaid’s dress in my friend’s wedding. (This basically means I do pushups during commercial breaks while I’m watching TV, but whatever works, right?)
