What I’m Reading
Finished TELL THE WOLVES I’M HOME (one of the best books I’ve read this year so far), reread Sarah Dessen’s ALONG FOR THE RIDE because I needed a good summer book, and am working my way through Chris Colfer’s Land of Stories series. Last night I finished rereading book one, THE WISHING SPELL. Next up is THE ENCHANTRESS RETURNS, and I’m also planning to reread Sarah Dessen’s KEEPING THE MOON.
What I’m Writing
To accomplish my RSW goal for the week, I’m trying to write every day. Since Monday I’ve written over 2k, which is VERY exciting for me because I am possibly the slowest writer in the universe. This time next week I’ll be in Pittsburgh for a summer writing workshop, so my WiP will be on the back burner (I’ll be writing short stories for the workshop). Trying to squeeze in as much work on my WiP as I can this week!
What Inspires Me Lately
My RSW goal and the Booktube-A-Thon on YouTube. There’s a week-long reading marathon happening right now and while I’m not fully participating (making videos, posting progress updates), I’m trying to reach some of the goals. In particular, I’m attempting to read 300 pages a day. I’ve accomplished it on Mon/Tues, but we’ll see if I’m able to keep it up! I love watching everyone’s progress videos on YouTube and seeing what people are reading.
What Else Is New
We celebrated my mom’s birthday last weekend! We went out to eat and ended up with multiple cakes in the house, which is always fun.
I also started a new crocheting project: a granny stripe rainbow afghan!
I’ll probably be MIA for the next few Wednesdays since my schedule for the writing workshop is pretty crazy. Have a great week everyone!
