What I'm Reading:
For fun I'm *still* reading STATISTICAL PROBABILITY OF LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT, which I'm confident I will have finished before my next WUW post. For real this time. I swear.
And all the ARCs have landed in my mailbox this week and I am drowning in them at the moment. Which, really, is not a bad place to be drowning if you have to drown somewhere.
**Update post-posting** I just finished Leonard Peacock, and OMG. This book is going to change the way people think. Love, love, LOVE Matthew Quick! Review coming very soon to this blog. Like possibly Friday.
What I'm Writing:I am in the final stages what my Agent-Goddess and I both hope will be the last revision pre-market. Which is TERRIFYING. Any and all insights left in comments are beyond appreciated.
Also catching up/getting ahead on some book blogging. Some awesome reviews and giveaways coming in August, so stay tuned!
What Else I'm Up To:I had this moment of actual whining in the grocery store the other day when I saw their ginormous Back to School display. Back to School for me means back to work and back to juggling the full time day job, writing career, part time freelance gig and full-time Momma gig.
So at the moment, I'm not up to much other than writing and Momma-ing because I'm going to enjoy doing both these last few weeks if it kills me.
Oh! And I'm going to my favorite Japanese restaurant tonight with my girl Susan where drinks and sushi and excessive quantities of fried rice will be consumed and shenanigans will be discussed and work will not be discussed and that's exciting.
What Inspires Me:Last week I didn't post because I was in Orlando visiting the parental units, which was, yeah not a vacation at all. But I did get to catch up with a few friends who hadn't been to my parents' place in a while and were awed and probably a little creeped out that my room looks EXACTLY like it did the day I left for college.
It's a little creepy.
But it's also inspiring for me as a writer of YA because there's so much teen angst to be found between those four walls that, for me, it balances out the creep factor quite nicely.
So what's up in your writerly neck of the woods? Let me hear from ya!
