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
I'm still being very slow with reading overall this year. Luckily it's got nothing to do with what I think of Vicious. It's a great book and even though I'm taking my time reading I'm enjoying every single part of it, even with how it goes back and forth from the origins of Eli's and Victor's superpowers to where they are now ten years later.
2) What I'm Writing
I'm getting my second draft all typed up on the computer and over the last I also wrote a short story that I'd like to enter in the British Fantasy Society Short Story competition. It's a bit of a mix of genres. The idea fits into science fiction but I couldn't help throw in horror.
3) What Else I've Been Up To
Back to crafting! I'm making an iPad cover but it's on hold until I get a sewing machine. Hand sewing doesn't last and my stitching is already coming off. I'm hoping that a sewing machine will help get things looking a little more professional and stop it from coming apart. My little owl toy is also losing his wing. =(
Also tried out making two new things cooking wise. I've done lemonade which I got to make today for Science Day at work and a Lancashire Hotpot last night for tea. Both actually turned out well.
Gothic literature has been really inspiring and going back to all the projects I wrote for my creative writing assessments at uni. I found one project I wrote for Experimental Writing that had been inspired by a concern in the late Victorian times so I had a fiddle around with it for my short short entry.
