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 I have yet to see the movie. Ever since then I've been on a bit of a soundtrack kick, especially since I need some kind of background music while I study. There's something really epic about doing stats homework while listening to the Skyrim theme, or writing a paper for a class on Tolkien while listening to the Hobbit soundtrack.
What Else I've Been Up To
Staying inside as much as possible. Apparently we've decided to completely skip autumn because the first frost arrived on Sunday and the first snow on Monday. It still isn't sticking, but I don't expect that to hold off for much longer. Don't get me wrong, I love snow, but I prefer it to wait until at least after Halloween.
