Currently: Revision Struggles and Gilmore gifs!

Time for another "Currently" update hosted by Katy Upperman! Here's what I'm currently...
    
Loving
The fact that I can now add gifs to my tweets. Maybe this has been going on forever, but I just figured it out the other day. I’m considering speaking only through Gilmore Girls gifs from now on!
 

Reading
LADY MIDNIGHT, of course! My copy finally arrived yesterday and I’m already 80 pages in. Loving Emma and the mentions of characters from past books. I also just finished rereading THE WINNER’S CURSE (adored it even more than the first time, if possible!) and plan on rereading THE WINNER’S CRIME in preparation for THE WINNER’S KISS at the end of the month.
 
Watching
My family recently got Netflix, so I’ve been binge-re-watching How To Get Away With Murder. Also my brother and I have been watching the random Disney movies currently on Netflix like Tarzan and Hercules. We never owned those two as kids (mostly because my brother imitated the Tarzan yell and my mom got too annoyed) so it’s fun to watch them now.
 
Listening To
My workout soundtrack today was Cam’s UNTAMED album. Love her!
 

 
Thinking About
Some pretty serious revisions for my current manuscript, HALFWAY TO HONDURAS. I finally have enough distance from the draft to see what’s not working. The story jumps back and forth between two parallel timelines, so I’ve currently pulled them apart into two documents and am editing chronologically…so I have no idea what it’ll look like when I put it back together! Stressful and exciting at the same time! (Sidenote for my future self: this madness is what you get when you write without an outline, Kaitlin!!)
 
Anticipating
The books I put on hold at the library. Watching my place in the hold line get closer and closer to the front gives me the same nerdy rush that Amazon packing tracking info does! Here are the books I’m waiting for:

Wishing
I had more time to write/revise. I’m trying to do something writerly every day for 20 minutes (to get back in the habit of writing every day), and then bigger blocks of writing time on the weekends. The tiny time slots make revisions seem ENDLESS right now, but I’ll keep plugging away!
 
Making Me Happy
Family! We celebrated my brother’s birthday last Thursday and spent a lot of time together over the weekend. So nice!
 

 




That’s all for me! What are you currently up to?

  1. I started thinking about THE WINNER'S KISS at yoga today (focus is sometimes a challenge for me) and I got all anxious and excited. I cannot wait to read that book! Love your family pictures -- you guys are too cute. Have a great weekend, Kaitlin! <3

    1. Me too - I'm so nervous for Kestrel and Arin! Still have to reread THE WINNER'S CRIME...not sure I'm ready to relive that ending yet. Maybe once I have TWK in my hand and can jump right to it, the cliffhanger won't hurt so much!
