What's Up Wednesday - November 26

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:
Now that it's break I should read more. I feel like it's not working like it should be.

What I'm Writing:
Nothing! I finished LP in one big writing spree on Sunday. Once I got to the big climactic scene I just couldn't stop. It's rounded out at 75k and is on the back burner for a while. I'm taking a break from writing until, at least, the semester is over. Next up is going to be revisions, but on what I'm not sure yet. I have a few projects that have been on the sidelines for a while.

What Works for Me: 
Letting the words flow. On Sunday I almost stopped once I hit my 1k goal for the day so that I could work on something else. Instead I kept my Scrivener doc open and I just kept going until I wrote the final sentence. It meant that I had to put a couple of tasks on my to do list off for another day, but it was worth it.

What Else I'm Up to: 
Thanksgiving break. I've barely left my apartment over the past few days and I'm enjoying it. Unfortunately it also means I'm having trouble convincing myself to get any real work done, but I'm still chipping away at what needs to be done. I have two presentations to give over the last week of classes so that's one thing.

Happy Thanksgiving!
