What's up Wednesday?

I've decided to join the group of bloggers doing What's Up Wednesday.

 Through Ready.Set.Write edition. Don't know about it? Go look here at Communtinggirl's blog.

Every Wednesday this summer, I'll try to make a blog post updating what's going on with me. So, here's my first What's Up Wednesday:

What I'm reading:
Dare You To by Katie McGarry
Recently, I've really gotten into a lot of YA contemporary and after reading the first in this series (Pushing the Limits), I needed to read the next. Unfortunately, I've been so busy lately that I haven't been reading very much. I need to remedy that. Who needs sleep?

What I'm writing:

Currently, I'm still working on my little baby wip. I'm hoping to get to 20K by next Wednesday. We'll see. I also decided to reread my dystopian MS and did little tweaks while reading over it. I'm joining a CP group to get some 'fresh eyes' on it and am looking forward to that.

What Else I've been Up to:

Not much. Wrangling my kids mainly. I'm also reading my wonderful sister's MS and I love it. She's awesome. Really. Click that link and check her out. And currently at this moment...I'm baking fresh, homemade hamburger buns. I wish you could all smell my house right now. Seriously. I love the smell of fresh bread baking. Yum. I can't wait to eat them tonight.

What Inspires Me Right Now:

Lots of things. I've been listening to a lot of indie/folk music while working on Baby WIP and looking up pictures on Pinterest that give me the vibe of my wip. Pictures like this:


And then, specifically, I've been listening to this song (My Body is A Cage by Arcade Fire) a lot while writing.

So, how about you? What're you reading or writing? What have you been up to? And, if you want to join in on the Ready.Set.Write  What's Up Wednesdays, just click on that first link to check it out or look up the Twitter hashtag, #ReadySetWrite :)


  1. I do love Arcade Fire. I haven't done as much with Pinterest and book inspiration but that's a really cool idea. I think I started a board for a project and then forgot about it :)

    1. I am a Pinterest addict. :) I have way too many boards and pins and I just keep adding to them! I need help! Haha.

  2. Those pictures really want to make me go camping. Great that you hit 20,000 - 'baby WIP', how cute :)
    Good luck in reaching those goals this next week!

    1. Yes...this wip is making me want to go camping and I'm not even an outdoorsy person! :)

  3. DARE YOU TO is on my must-read list! I can't wait to get my hands on it! And good luck with your baby WiP! I hope you have a wonderful writing week!

    1. Oh it's so good! I stayed up way too late last night reading it! Worth it.
