What’s Up Wednesday is a weekly blog hop to keep in touch with other writers on this writing journey. Check it out on Jaime Morrow’s blog here if you’d like to take part, too!
What I’m reading...
A Tangle of Knots Lisa Graff
I was only on page 25 when I started recommending this book to people. It’s delightful!
Everything Neil Gaiman writes/selects is awesome.
Still Writing by Dani Shapiro
I’ve been reading an entry or two right before working on my NaNoWriMo novel, and it’s been the boost I need to get writing.
What I’m writing... My novel for NaNoWriMo! I need to update my word count though. I’ve been writing this novel with pencil in an orange notebook. I’m in front of multiple computers all day at work, and the last thing I want to do before or after work is sit in front of a screen again. I prefer writing by hand anyway. I always have! And then typing my handwritten pages into the computer is a great way to get that 1st draft revision started.
What works for me right now... Making sure I get plenty of sleep and sticking to my schedule. Also, CHRISTMAS! Yes, I’m one of thooose. As soon as Halloween is over, I’m getting ready for Christmas. Thanksgiving has always felt like a part of Christmas to me because both holidays have common themes of abundance, gratefulness, family, and love. I have a few Christmasy things out, including my little snowman tree that I’ll keep up through winter, but I don’t fully decorate until the weekend after Christmas. Can’t believe it’s next week already!!
What else I’ve been up to... Eating, sleeping, reading, writing, working, repeating.
What are you reading and writing? What’s working for you right now? What shenanigans are you up to? If you’re participating in NaNoWriMo, how is it going for you?
I hope you’re having a wonderful week, Zigzaggers! Happy writing!!
