What I’m ReadingI finished the second book in Chris Colfer’s THE LAND OF STORIES series, THE ENCHANTRESS RETURNS. I’m working on a review, but let me just say, such a fun read! I love fairy tales with a twist. I haven’t read much of my other two in-progress books, ANNA KARENINA and THE PARTICULAR SADNESS OF LEMON CAKE, but I’m still loving them, I promise!
What I’m WritingWell…not much. My trip to Pittsburgh for job training set me back last week, and packing/visiting friends has set me back even further. I’m moving to Pittsburgh on Saturday and starting my new job Monday, so I’m going to keep my goal simple: Hit 35K. I only have about 500 words to go, and I’ll be happy if I write that much. I’m going to work writing time into my new-grown-up-grad-student schedule once I figure it out, but for now I’m taking things slow.
What Inspires Me LatelyI had a great time on my solo Pittsburgh trip, and I’m excited to start this new, more grown up phase of my life.
What Else Is New
|Brother/sister movie date!|
I also took my brother to see the new Percy Jackson movie. I’ve never read the books so I can’t judge accuracy, but I enjoyed it. I mean, Nathan Fillion as Hermes? In those short UPS shorts (shortly followed by a quick change into a Richard Castle-esque suit)? That five-minute scene was totally worth my money for the movie ticket!
I’m moving to Pittsburgh on Saturday and would appreciate any positive thoughts/faith in my ability to lift heavy boxes you can send my way! My books are in rolling suitcases, thankfully, or I’m not sure they’d make it up the stairs!
