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
Finished Vicious and now onto Cress by Marissa Meyer. I love the take on Rapunzel and the character already. I just love this series all together. The sci-fi fits in perfectly with fairy tales and all the characters are awesome. Can someone please make this into a film? And can someone please go back in time to fetch a younger Nathan Fillion so he can play Thorne?
2) What I'm Writing
I finished the 3rd draft for Beast Inside at 61,336 words. I'm finished working on the story and plot, it has exactly what I wanted from it. Now it's just to check through - grammar, voice, keeping in character etc and then I think it's time start looking for beta readers! Maybe it'll be ready for a proper query for WriteOnCon this year!
I also started working on the second draft of my witch project. And I needed to use the last few days of the holidays to finish up a short story I want to enter for the British Fantasy Society short story competition. Here are the details for the comp if anyone else is interested!
3) What Else I've Been Up To
Lots more maths revision, celebrating four year anniversary with Pete, getting back into the routine of work, and... I passed my driving test last Wednesday! WHEEEEEEEEE! I can't wait to drive to places! I'm already making a huge list on the places I want to visit and when my car comes we're celebrating with a trip to our favourite Fish and Chips restaurant that we usually can't get to without going with my family and pinching a ride of somebody. But I can drive us there now! YAY! If anyone has any places to recommend visiting around the UK let me know!
4) What Inspires Me Right Now
Vicious inspired me as I was reading it. I started re-watching Misfits at the same time and now I want to write about superheroes! Fiction needs more superheroes!
