Jaime Morrow and Erin L. Funk. Perfect for readers and writers who want to share what they've been up to on a weekly basis and right now the place to share your goals and track your progress for Ready. Set. Write!
1) What I'm Reading
I've been quite bad with the reading since September begin. Work started two weeks ago and I've just been getting used to that, spending any free time writing and getting everything prepared for my phonics group. I need to get some reading done this weekend, even if it's only another couple of chapters.
2) What I'm Writing
I tried flash fiction for the first time after seeing the YA Buccaneers challenge and got a really good idea for it. I really enjoyed writing a story that short so I don't plan on that being my last go at flash fiction.
I'm also writing a short story for a writing competition based on Friday 13th. Again, I read the challenge and got an idea for it so I'm going to give it a go and see how I do. It's been ages since I wrote a short story to send off somewhere and I'd like to really get into the habit of writing them.
3) What Else I've Been Up To
Getting back into the habit of going to work and getting used to Year 2 work and expectations. I'm absolutely loving this year and teaching a little group of phase 5 phonics so I've been getting used to that.
4) What Inspires Me Right Now
I've been watching the new season of Ghost Adventures to get back in the ghost writing mood. And Pete's been watching Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood recently so while I'm catching glimpses of it I'm suddenly interested and inspired by Alchemy. I'm hunting around for some decent books on it for research.
