WHAT I'M READING
I'm in that place again where I can't seem to get into a book. Hoping it passes quickly. Dying to get trapped into a story that I can't put down.
WHAT I'M WRITING
For the A to Z Blogging Challenge I decided to post a writing prompt for myself each day (consisting of a photo and a phrase), and then write a short bit of fiction in response to it. Writing to these prompts and keeping up with the daily posting schedule has dominated my writing time. I'm having a ball doing them.
WHAT'S INSPIRING ME
These A to Z daily writing prompts have been totally energizing. I'm using them to explore characters, backstory, and settings for my novel. Most of these little snippets will never make it into the novel, but they are becoming part of the exploratory process and are getting me excited about the story all over again. I like writing with a photo in mind, and I like the freedom of not having to connect these bits with anything else. It's allowing me to focus on the pure joy of the writing.
WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON
Spring break is coming up next week, so I'm preparing for a little adventure we will be taking, and trying to get ahead of the A to Z challenge so that the posts keep going even while I'm gone.
Thanks for visiting, and Happy Wednesday to you!
What’s Up Wednesday is a meme created by Jaime Morrow and Erin L. Funk, and designed to help writers stay in touch with each other. I'm grateful to them for creating this structure, which I am finding helpful as I document my path toward becoming a writer. Please link over to their blogs to see what they and other writers are up to this week.
