Thanks to a driving desire to watch all of the Harry Potter films all over again because they’re just simply that good, I’m behind a day on my update post. (I regret nothing!) So, without further ado…here we go!
What I’m Writing:
I’m well into my coursework for the Your Novel Year certificate program, so this week I’m continuing on my assignments and learning all I can about the craft of storytelling. I’m also making good progress on my WIP. My goal this week is 8,000 new and shiny words.
What I’m Reading:
After reading like crazy on my vacation I’m back to real life and have slowed down a bit. I’m halfway through Veronica Roth’s INSURGENT and am eager to find out how this story plays out. I have to admit that I found the beginning of the book a little slow, but it’s picked up and I’m well into the action now.
What I’m Listening To:
I’m still mining the world of music for the perfect songs to go on my novel playlist, but this week I’m also binge-listening to Lorde’s Royals. It’s the ultimate earworm…so catchy!
What’s Inspiring Me:
Without a lovely beach view to inspire me I’m relegated back to the real world. I’m finding my current inspiration from good old Pinterest and have been seeking pins that reflect lead characters.
Besides the aforementioned 8,000 word goal on my WIP, I’m looking forward to finishing INSURGENT and getting started on ALLEGIANT. I’ve done a masterful job of avoiding spoilers but I’m more than a little eager to find out what all the fuss was about.
