And…we’re back! It’s time for the Weekly Check-In and I’m looking forward to hearing what’s new with you!
What I’m Writing:
This week started out pretty rough in terms of writing. I was so stressed out about having written myself into a hole last week that I spent an inordinate amount of time deleting written words and generally freaking out over where to go next. Luckily I had a great talk with a trusted fellow writer that pulled me out of my funk midweek and I ended the week quite productive. I’m back on track and am moving in the right direction again.
What I’m Reading:
I’m almost too ashamed to admit this, but…..I am still reading INSURGENT. I know, I know, get on with it, right? I’m about halfway through and every time I pick it up I get distracted and end up putting it down. For whatever reason, after absolutely falling in love with the first book in the series, I just cannot get invested in this book. I’m not giving up, though. I’m still interested enough to know how this series ended up (especially after all of the controversy surrounding the last book) that I’ll likely finish it, even if it’s a struggle. Meanwhile, my TBR list is growing every day, so I’d better get to it so I can finally move on.
What I’m Listening To:
Anyone else out there obsessed with Imagine Dragons? Yeah, me too.
What’s Inspiring Me:
I was feeling less than inspired for most of the week, so this is a tough one, but ultimately it was the kind words of encouragement from someone who has been in my shoes as a young writer who ended up inspiring me. Sometimes all it takes to get out of a funk is hearing that you’re not alone, and those words really helped this week.
Well, finish INSURGENT, obviously! On the writing front, I’m aiming for 6,000 words again this week. Even after my struggles this past week I managed that and feel like it’s a good goal.
