What's Up Wednesday? PROGRESS. That's what's up!
What I'm Reading
I finished Jonathan Franzen's THE CORRECTIONS on Saturday. It's one of the 5 books I picked for my Chunkster Challenge, so I might post a little review of it later. Now I've moved onto a collection of travel essays by Annie Dillard called TEACHING A STONE TO TALK. Not loving it so far, but I have to read it for class. I'm about halfway through, so at least it's going fast. I also started a new book for fun, a book I always see in the stores and pick it up every time but never buy, so my mom bought me the entire series for my birthday...THE MAZE RUNNER!!!! I've heard mixed reviews about this book but I'm 60 pages in and liking it so far.
What I'm Writing
I'm trying to keep up with a bunch of small assignments (100 word writing exercises, things like that), so I'm in between big writing projects. I have to write a critical essay on THE CORRECTIONS (ugh), so that's one of my top priorities, but I'll also be revising an essay about food poisoning (also ugh). Sooooo there's that. I've also been putting off revisions of a story AND writing two others. A few of my classes got cancelled for the last week of February, so I'm hoping to marathon it and get a bunch of writing done then!
What Inspires Me Right Now
Did you know there's an entire group of people on YouTube who vlog about BOOKS??? Apparently everyone knew this but me, but now I'm obsessed! Since I started watching people's BookTube channels, I've ordered 4 books off Amazon because SO MANY PEOPLE talked about them. All I watch are book channels. I've probably spent more time watching them than TV this past week. No shame!
What Else Have I Been Up To?
Not much besides puzzles and BookTube...and I'm okay with that!
How's your week going?
