What's Up Wednesday folks! Checking in here:
What I'm Reading
I finished Allegiant, the third book in the Divergent series (right in time for the first movie!). I did not hate the ending as many did. Though, I was not that invested in the series. I tend to like unconventional endings, and I liked this one. I really enjoyed this version on audio book which included one of my favorite narrators.
I most likely will not see Divergent opening weekend because I have plans to see Muppets Most Wanted with my mom. Muppets over dystopia, always.
What I'm Writing
I FINISHED THE REVISION. This would be the second revision from my agent on my WIP tentatively titled AMELIA. I wanted to finish it in February but it was a lot of work to restructure the pacing. I hope it's ready.
Moving forward, I'll continue with my Nano 2013 contemporary YA. My critique group has a chapter of it now. I am going to do some plot work since I got stuck during the draft. I hate plotting but it's obviously necessary. I want to make sure I have a final crisis moment that is worthy enough for the build up I created.
I'm doing Spring Bootcamp, a similar check-in as this one, to keep me motivated!
What Inspires Me Right Now
I just caught up on The Voice. Seeing people who are so driven and talented is super inspiring.
Also, I was looking for older plotting notes and scanned through my writing notebook from 2012. I found a short list of "top agency choices" with Curtis Brown and Bradford Lit included. The agent I signed with worked with Curtis Brown at the time, and a few months later, moved to Bradford. Wow. Funny to see those notes now with agents names I recognize (along with notes on why they rejected my manuscript!).
What Else I've Been Up To
Revisions all the time revisions. I did manage to get out and spend time with friends last weekend. And now my revisions are complete! I shall allow myself to party a bit this weekend when I visit the momz and some friends.
How are you all this Wednesday?
