What's Up Wednesday is a writer's blog hop created by Jaime Morrow and Erin Funk. You can find out more about it and how to play along by clicking here.
What I'm Reading: This week I read LIESL and PO by Lauren Oliver. She is just an amazing writer and this MG Ghost story dealt with death and grief so beautifully. I am trying to read more MG since that is what I most enjoy writing, so I would love any recommendations that you guys have.
What I'm Writing: I worked on a two page synopsis for my MG Sci-Fi that I am about to query. You all know that those two pages are sometimes more challenging than the whole damn novel. But I think that it is probably ok enough now that it could be sent out if absolutely necessary.
What Works for Me: I think I've mentioned before that Nano events really work for me. I have written 3 out of my 5 finished works during some sort of National Novel Writing event. My goals are to finish querying UNDER THE BLUE and get my next WIP outlined before April, so that I can draft during a Camp Nano session. It is just super motivating for me to have a deadline and group of people that I am competing with... Uh, I mean encouraging.
What Else is Going On: We are going a little batty around here. The weather has been wintry and bleak. The kids have made a fort out of the entire basement.
The sun is shining today, so I have plans to kick the kids out in the backyard for some much needed vitamin D!
