What's Up Wednesday

What’s Up Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Erin L Funk and Jaime Morrow, and the idea is to let other bloggers know where you are with any writing and reading goals you may have.



1. What I'm reading

I just finished Underworld by Meg Cabot - I said last week that I hoped it would be better than the last in the series, but unfortunately I was disappointed again. It just didn't seem as though anything really happened in the book. I'll still read the next one, but only because I want to finish the series.

I'm now reading Allegiant by Veronica Roth - finally! I've been waiting for what feels like forever to read this book. Part of me doesn't want to get to the end, because it's the last in the series. I'm sure I won't let that stop me, though!

2. What I'm writing

I'm still deep in preparations for NaNo on Friday - I can't believe it's only a couple of days away! I only have a few character profiles to do now, and then I think I'll be as ready as I can be! I'm also working on a couple more Halloween stories, one of which will be up later today!

3. What else I've been up to

I haven't been up to much, really, mostly working. When I haven't been working I've been doing NaNo prep and writing, with the exception of Monday and Tuesday, which I spent with my boyfriend, mostly watching anime!

4. What inspires me right now

I'm inspired by Halloween right now - I just love the atmosphere of the holiday, and it's getting me really motivated to write. I'm also inspired by music - it always helps to put me into the writing mood.

  1. I love that Halloween inspires you and spurs you on Laura, your writing around this time of the year is excellent, not that it's ever anything but though.

  3. I also felt underwhelmed by that Meg Cabot series. I listened to the audiobook of the second installment and I tuned out a lot; it really felt like nothing was happening. The whole story seemed to take place in 2 or 3 days. But, I still enjoy her other books, like the Heather Wells series, so maybe it's her more upbeat characters I'm a fan of.

  5. Lots of Allegiant reading going around. It's sitting on my printer right now, waiting for me to get caught up on classwork so I can start it. Hopefully tomorrow or Friday.

    Good luck with NaNo!
