I finished Boy on the Bridge by Natalie Standiford last week. My review went up on Friday. I felt that it fell short of its potential. But now I'm reading Scarlet by Marissa Meyer. I have to admit that I was a little sad when I read the summary and found out it focuses on Scarlet rather than Cinder but I'm quickly falling in love.
What I'm Writing:
Nothing at the moment. I haven't started querying either. I'm swamped with work. It's not likely to get any better until next week so I think I'm going to forego the writing goal.
What Works for Me:
Musical motivation. I've listened to Fall Out Boy's new album an almost embarrassing number of times since it was released, but I regret nothing. Sometimes music gets me pumped up (like Fall Out Boy) and sometimes it helps me to settle down and focus (like my all instrumental playlist on Pandora).
What Else I've Been Up to:
Trying to get settled into a routine. The first few weeks of a semester are always the toughest scheduling wise because there's classes and work and lab time and somewhere in there sleep has to happen. Mine is starting to fall into place but I haven't quite gotten there yet. My Starbucks intake is also a little out of hand at the moment.
If anyone's out east, stay safe and warm. Have a great week, everyone!
