Still Rose Under Fire, though I will be finishing it this week. I'm also reading Texaco by Patrick Chamboiseau for class and not enjoying it in the least. It's a very wordy, complicated, and literary story and that's not my style at all. The story itself is set in Martinique (Caribbean) and spans roughly 150 years of history. It's Marie-Sophie Laboireax telling the story of her grandfather, father, and finally herself and how the shantytown of Texaco was founded.
What I'm Writing:
I've taken the last week and a half off Weredragon revisions in order to focus on keeping out with school and work. It's back on my to do list today, though, and I'm excited to dive back in.
What Inspires Me:
I'm having trouble thinking of anything for this one right now.
What Else I've Been Up To:
Olympics! They start tomorrow and the opening ceremony is on Friday. I didn't grow up in a big sports household so I've never been able to watch nearly as much as I intend to this year. I'm especially excited for hockey. There are ten Red Wings in all playing for various teams, plus our coach is coaching Canada's team. I'm looking forward to seeing them play.
