What's Up Wednesday

What's Up Wednesday is a weekly meme, started by Jaime Morrow and Erin Funk, geared to help readers and writers touch base and let them know what's up. If you want join in, you can find the link widget on Jaime's blog!

What I'm Reading

It's been a while since I last posted for WUW. I've read a lot of great books since then, so I'll list those: Fangirl and Eleanor & Park - both by Rainbow Rowell, The Coldest Girl in Coldtown - Holly Black, Throne of Glass and Crown of Midnight - both by Sarah J. Maas, and finally Faking It - Cora Carmack. All of them were fantastic! I'm itching to read another book, but I'm holding off for a few days so I can outline my next book. 

What I'm Writing

Not actually writing chapters yet. I'd been trying to make my last idea work, and sadly I couldn't get it just right. Hey, it happens. So I pitched another idea to my awesome agent, and she was all for it. Yay! It's going to be a fantasy, which will require a lot of world building. Fun stuff! Fortunately, I can still use my WiP Pinterest board as inspiration. 

What Inspires Me Right Now

All the new TV shows that I've started watching. The Blacklist is amazing. James Spader is perfect in this series as a major league criminal who's turned himself in to authorities and helping them catch other criminals, but only on the condition that he deals with one particular agent. Other new favorites are Sleepy Hollow and American Horror Story: Coven

What Else I've Been Up To

I'm trying to get back in a working groove. A little over two weeks ago, one of my kids got sick and had to miss a whole week of school. Right after that I got sick. :( Then the week after that, school was out for Fall Break, and they didn't go back to school until yesterday. 

And that's it! What have you been up to lately?
