Jaime Morrow and
What am I not reading? I started a bunch of books I'm trying to finish. They include Alex Cavanaugh's CASSAFIRE, Alison Ashley Formento's TWIGS, and Nova Ren Suma's 17 & GONE.
What I'm Writing
Last Wednesday my goal was to do the first round of edits for my historical MG and write three chapters for a draft of another historical MG.
This has been done and I hope to do the same by next Wednesday, with a second round of edits for the first manuscript and three more chapters for the second.
What Else I've Been Up To
I'm continuing with the social media purging. Last week I reported that I deleted my Facebook, Tumblr, and Pinterest accounts. Now I can report that I'm no longer on LinkedIn, Google+, LiveJournal (I connected with writer friends who are on it), and a few other sites. It's nice having fewer notifications in my email and not sneaking a peek at these sites to see them. My sidebar has my favorite sites listed and this blog is here to stay.
What Inspires Me Right Now
The equinox. Sure it's still hot where I am, but it will eventually cool down. I sometimes take my writing outside when the temperatures are more mellow. Also, the upcoming holidays mean more writing time for me. I look forward to that.
