here to see how you can join in the fun.
What I'm Reading: I just started BLACK DUCK by Janet Taylor Lisle. It is about a rum runner's boat during prohibition. My "research reads" pile is slowly getting smaller.
What I'm Writing: Still researching for my YA Hist Fic. My outline is coming along nicely, and I have found answers to some of my pressing questions.
What Works for Me: Field Trips! Nothing inspires me more than visiting an actual setting in my work. Midway through my first draft of COMMITTED (a YA Hist Thriller that takes place in an asylum) I took a little trip to a real asylum turned museum. It was fascinating, and I got to add lots to juicy details and sensory images to my WIP.
PS- the weird look on my face is due to the fact that I was ALL ALONE in the morgue when my phone decided to do this weird malfunction with all the blurry orbs flying around everywhere... I snapped my selfie and got the heck out of there!
What Else is Going on: My husband whisked the kids away to visit his parents last weekend, so I got three whole days to myself! You would think I would have been really productive and gotten a bunch of stuff done, but really I did this:
My sister-in-law and I, goofing off.
PS- I realize that I have been the world's worst comment-backer, so if you comment this week I swear that I will reply! Cross my heart!
