What's Up Wednesday: June 11

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: 
In books, still Son. I've been distracted lately in doing research into criticisms of Cesar Millan (you may know him as The Dog Whisperer from National Geographic).

What I'm Writing: 
Exciting news for this one for once. I finished Weredragon's polish a couple weeks ago and sent it to a friend who gave me some great comments and pointed out some things I'd missed. I've had a SNI  floating around my head for several months now but it was just a premise. I had ideas for two characters, but I was still lacking their basic personalities and that's the important thing to me when I start writing. On Sunday, I started writing and I've already hit just over 7k. There are dragons and sorcerers and captured princesses and I'm very excited about it.

What Inspires Me: 
New characters. I work with a vague outline to give me some idea where I'm going, but mostly I'm a pantser. I like to discover new things about my characters as I write and watch them form their own identities. I'm really excited about the girls in this story, especially the main character, Kaiya.

What Else I've Been Up To: 
Getting the house cleaned up for when my friends visit next month. Finished season two of Supernatural. Started season two of Stargate SG1. This weekend my brother and his family, who I only get to see a couple times a year, will be up for the weekend so I can't wait to see them.

Have a great week!

I never thought I'd meet a Supernatural fan as behind as I am. And I still haven't...I'm about half way through with season 2, so you're still beating me. :)

Hooray for SNIs! :D

Oooh, SG-1! I used to love that show. Enjoy it.

Congrats on all the words! Starting a new idea is so exciting.
One of these days I'm going to have to start watching Supernatural.
