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.
WHAT I'M READING
Still working on Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott and loving it. I have more or less given up on Twelve by Justin Cronin, which I was listening to from Audible. It's just not working for me with that narrator, who makes every passage sound super dramatic. I get exhausted by the never-ending string of dramatic pauses. Plus I'm confused about when/where/who we are talking about half the time... I wonder what kind of book works best in audible format? Maybe I don't have the concentration for it.
WHAT I'M WRITING
Still cranking away on my story drafting. I've been really loving my 1000 words per day goal, and the target tracking feature of Scrivener, and the notion of not breaking the chain of successive writing days. I did "break the chain" when my in-laws were visiting over the weekend, but I'm back up and running this week and hope to keep up a good long chain this time.
WHAT'S INSPIRING ME
WHAT ELSE IS GOING ONMay is going on. It's the second busiest month of the year, after December, in my life these days. I'm just trying to keep up with all the birthday parties, performances, thank you gifts, playoff games and the like. And, it's in the high 90s this week! HOT!
Thanks for visiting, and Happy Wednesday to you!
