What's Up Wednesday: Halloween Week

What's Up Wednesday is a weekly blog hop created by Jaime Morrow and Erin Funk to help writers stay in touch.

What I'm Reading: 
I'm only two chapters away from the end of Return of the King so I'll be finishing that today. Sadly I didn't get to read Allegiant over the weekend because it was delayed in the mail and didn't arrive until Monday. I haven't decided yet if I'm going to start it tomorrow or Friday, but I will definitely be reading it this weekend.

What I'm Writing: 
Hopefully, after I finish RotK, I'll have some more free time on my hands and I'll be able to start up daily revision goals again.

What Inspires Me: 
I stayed up until one last night watching Pacific Rim for the first time and I can honestly say that I don't know what took me so long. Just everything. It was weird because I fell in love with the music first and to see it in the movie was disconcerting, but also awesome in a way.

What Else I've Been Up To: 
Hallowee…

What I'm Reading: 
I finished The Two Towers last week and now I'm into Return of the King. The first few chapters were a little slow but now I'm really getting into it. I'm totally jealous of everyone who is currently reading Allegiant. My copy won't be here until Friday, which is probably for the best, but I have every intention of taking a break from everything to read it this weekend. Can't wait to get my hands on it!

What I'm Writing: 
Nothing as of right now. I spent a good bit of yesterday afternoon writing a paper comparing the One Ring to the Elder Wand. I've been doing a fair bit of brainstorming lately but nothing concrete. I've considered giving NaNoWriMo a shot, just to get myself writing again, but revisions come first.

What Inspires Me
A friend watched Pacific Rim and recommended that I listen to the theme song even though …

What I'm Reading
I am well into book 2 of Tolkien's The Two Towers and hoping to finish it by Friday. After that, I'll be immediately leaping into Return of the King. I thought I would have time for House of Hades by Rick Riordan this weekend but it doesn't look like that's going to happen. It arrives in the mail tomorrow and will be my reward for finishing the LOTR trilogy. I'm also making my way through B.F. Skinner's Verbal Behavior for a research paper and, I have to say, it's fairly fascinating.

What I'm Writing
Papers for class. CK revisions have been put on hold while I read LOTR and write a paper for Tolkien and another paper for Grammar. Hopefully in another day or two I can get rolling again.

What Inspires Me
There's a song, Light 'Em Up by Fall Out Boy, and I'm completely obsessed with it right now. It took me about f…

What I'm Reading
I finished Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien last week and I was kind of surprised how much I enjoyed it. I was told as a kid that Tolkien's novels are slow and full of too much description, so I never gave them a shot. Now I'm glad I haven't continued to let that deter me, because I'm really getting into the series. I'm into The Two Towers now and would probably enjoy it more if my Tolkien professor hadn't told us that we have a quiz over Fellowship and Book 1 of Towers on Monday. In addition to that, there's also a stack of books on neurolinguistics sitting on my desk for a research paper.

What I'm Writing
Not really much of anything the past couple of weeks. I'm still making steady progress on CK's revisions, but classwork is consuming my life.

What Inspires Me
This might sound kind of strange, but the s…
