I did actually keep my promise from last week to have a new answer to this question. I finally finished Son by Lois Lowry. I'm not going to write a review of it because I'm not sure what to say (and also because I took so long reading it), but I did enjoy it and it made me want to go back and reread the first three books. Next up, I've started a memoir called The Horse Boy by Rupert Isaacson.
What I'm Writing:
Progressing a little bit slower on LP this week. My word count is up to 16k and climbing. I have a good idea of where I'm going, but I'm not so sure of what's happening now and that's slowing me down. I am a pantser by nature but I do keep a rough list of future scene ideas and questions that need to be answered.
What Else I've Been Up To:
Over the weekend, I passed my road test and got my drivers' license. Yes, I got it a bit later than most people. I took drivers' ed in high school but I had a lot of driving-related anxiety. I took my road test for the first time before leaving for college and failed. Then I went away to college (where I could walk everywhere I needed to go) and there wasn't time during the brief holidays I was home so it just didn't happen. Well, now it's done!
What Inspires Me:
I was pretty nervous for my test so to help calm down I would remind myself of all the things I would be able to do once I had my license. There were simple things that driving to visit a friend or getting my hair cut, and more complicated things like driving myself back from college or volunteering at a therapeutic riding stable.
Have a great week, everyone!
