It's a complicated mixture right now. My main focus is on The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien for a class (on Tolkien). I have about two weeks to read it so that's taking a good amount of my time. Also on my shelf with bookmarks in them are Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan (a reread I started before the movie came out, to give you an idea of how long I've been at it) and Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen.
What I'm Writing
The occasional short story that strikes my fancy mostly. I'm neck-deep in revisions for Cursed Kind. Some of the changes are relatively major so I need to be sure that they're making sense and fit with what's already there. Mostly clarifying motivations and upping the stakes.
What Inspires Me
My friends, in more ways than one. I have the three best roommates a college girl could ever ask for. Last weekend we went to the halloween store for costumes and ended up with masquerade masks. Which then inspired me to write a short story featuring them.
What Else I've Been Up To
TV. Lots of TV. The premieres for my fall shows began this week with Castle. Not at all happy with that premiere. Last night was NCIS (next week is going to break me) and NCIS: Los Angeles (mixed feelings). Then this morning I watched the premiere for Marvel's Agents of SHIELD and it was amazing. In non-airing television, I started watching Heroes last week and I'm so addicted. I finished the first season on Sunday and I'll be finishing season two today. Also, hockey (go Red Wings)! It's preseason but I missed this sport so much. I'm ready for the regular season to start.
