What's Up Wednesday...

What's Up Wednesday is a weekly feature created by 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.

1) What I'm Reading
Continuing to read Vicious which I quite like.  I'm still at the beginning where slowly Schwab is building up this world and I like the pace of the novel so far.  It keeps going forward and back to Victor now and his origins story but it doesn't ruin the flow of the novel.  It keeps you interested whether you're in the past or the present. 

2) What I'm Writing
I finally finished this revision of Beast Inside, completing the final chapter last night.  More revisions are needed in the next round of edits but I have the story I want.  I like what happens and there's nothing I want to change plot-wise.  All I want to do is add some more chapters in the next revisions that I thought of and start to concentrate on the characters and their voices.  I still think it's quite a weak area in the draft.  

3) What Else I've Been Up To
Back at work now where I'm glad to get into a routine again.  I'm not great with the last few days of the holidays.  I get restless and need routine in my life to get things done. 

4) What Inspires Me Right Now
Finishing off a revision.  I hope that doesn't sound arrogant but completing a first draft or a revision can help so much. You feel one step closer!


  1. Huge congratulations on finishing off the edit! Go you :D

  2. Not arrogant at all, Robin. There are few things more motivating and inspiring than accomplishing a major goal, showing yourself you *can* do it, and opening your eyes to the possibilities. You've finished the book. There's a plot structure there you like. You're getting a good feel for the characters and how you want them to be. Sure you feel inspired! I would. :)

    Have a great writing week!

  3. I haven't read anything by Victoria Schwab yet, but I really want to - I just can't decide whether I want to read Vicious or The Archived first! :)

  4. One step closer indeed! Great work. :)
