So yesterday was a bit of a hectic day. After running from zombies on Saturday and doing Zumba yesterday I didn't have a lot of feeling left in my body to do anything when I got in. So hence posting today.
1) What I'm Reading
Since last week I finished The Iron Daughter, Fatal Secrets by Richie Tankersley Cusick, and A Midsummer Night's Scream by R.L.Stine. I'm starting on The Unicorn Crisis by Jon Rosenberg. Pete's just been reading his novels and recommended them to me so I'm giving them a try. I think they're only sold on kindle so there isn't a book cover. But there is a blurb:
Someone has summoned a Unicorn to a field south of Stratford-upon-Avon causing David Ash's day to go straight to hell. Now he has to confront shotgun wielding drug dealers, murderous strangers and psychotic fairies and all to find out who stole one of Oberon's personal pets. He better do it soon, or it will mean an all out conflict between The Fairy Court and The Hidden Academy. Worse, as back up all Ash can muster is a soap opera loving Welsh elf and an American Summoner who doesn't trust him one inch. This would be bad enough, but, as the mystery unravels, Ash forms a nagging suspicion that the heart of this problem lies in his own worst nightmare, the one he's been trying to forget for over a decade.
2) What I'm Writing
Overall goal for Ready. Set. Write!: 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 10/7/2013: Chapter 24 of Beast Inside and finish Chapter 7 of Consequences.
Both done and I also wrote a bit for Chapter 8 of Consequences.
Weekly goal for 18/7/2013: Chapter 25 of Beast Inside, Chapter 8 and 9 of Consequences. Try to write 5000 more words for Consequences.
3) What Else I've Been Up To
I posted up my experience of 2.8 Hours Later. It's my second year of participating and I absolutely loved it. The sods got the zombies to hide and jump out at us this time.
I also started watching The Inbetweeners because everyone I know has been pestering me too. Oh my god, the amount of times I'm hiding behind a cushion because the four teenage characters get into some right messes. It's hilarious. All four of them are so awkward. I can't find a promo for the TV series that will show in other countries but this clip is from The Inbetweeners film:
4) What Inspires Me Right Now
Zombies. I'm going to have to write a zombie WiP in the future.
