1) What I'm Reading
I actually haven't been reading since Wednesday, using my time for writing instead. But I think I'm going to start a second book to help me get back on track. Maybe it'll push me to finish Leviathan.
2) What I'm Writing
I'm participating in Ready. Set. Write! so I have a few writing goals from now to August 28th:
Overall goal: Complete July Camp NaNo to finish off the story I started in April's Camp NaNo and decided to put aside for a bit of a chill out. Also complete the round of edits I'm doing for Beast Inside. I'd like the 2nd and 3rd edits which I'm doing back to back to be finished by the end of summer.
Weekly goal for 19/06/2013: Finish Chapter 21 in Beast Inside. Do more planning on Consequences.
Didn't plan but I worked on Beast Inside, writing up the edits for Chapters 18 to 20 on my laptop which is my third draft and handwriting Chapter 21, my second draft. I think it's a strange way to edit but writing the 2nd draft by hand and then writing up the 3rd edit on the laptop sort of back to back has helped me keep track of the improvements I need to make each time.
Weekly goal for 26/06/2013: Chapter 22 for Beast Inside.
3) What Else I've Been Up To
Doing more work on Super Awesome Display at work, tried out a zumba class today - loved it and I'm going back next week - and bought a couple of things when I saw a huge sale sign at Paperchase.
I got a travel wallet and this gorgeous notebook. I'm supposed to be good but the cover was so pretty.
4) What Inspires Me Right Now
I'm a huge superhero mood at the moment. I'm slowly working my way through mine and Pete's Batman trilogy (Nolan's films) and I may have to have my weekly Avengers Assemble viewing at some point. Superheroes will be a future writing project. I need to write about superheroes in the near future. :)
To get me in the superhero mood this is a blast from my past. I loved this cartoon when I was a child and the music gets me all nostalgic.
And this song from Poets of the Fall is an excellent superhero song.
