What's Up Wednesday is a weekly blog hop created by Jaime Morrow and Erin Funk to help writers stay in touch. It was spring for two days and now it's nine degrees and the wind chill is negative something. It's sunny so it looks nice out but I know that it's not. Fingers crossed that this is winter's farewell. Also to everyone getting even more snow, stay warm and safe.
I finished Seraphina by Rachel Hartman last week and if you haven't read this book, I highly recommend it. Beautifully imagined world, characters that I never want to let go of, and great voice. Also dragons. Now I'm onto The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman (I must admit that I've never read any of his work before) and while I was thrown off by the style at first, I'm really starting to get into it now.
What I'm Writing:
Siren is coming along very slowly, but steadily. I'm already seeing a lot of things about the opening that need to be fixed in revisions, but that's okay. I also have some ideas for how to fix my old NaNo project, Hacker, so I might start looking at that again soon. It needs a lot of work but the MC that the novel takes it's nickname from is one of my favorites I've ever written so she makes it worth it.
What Inspires Me:
I was going to say the arrival of spring, but it turned out to be doing a quick drive-by. I'm drawing a bit of a blank.
What Else I've Been Up To:
The class list for next semester was released yesterday so I spent more time than I should have scrolling through it and working out potential schedules. I was excited for about five seconds until I realized three of the classes I want to take are at the exact same time. The idea of picking classes is also kind of terrifying because I'm going to be a senior and I have every intention of graduating on time in the spring.
