What’s up Wednesday, mid-October version

Hey, everybody, I’m not sure how often I’m going to be participating in What’s Up Wednesday over the next month and a half; probably depends on how many more Nano spotlights I get. But I’m here this time.

ROCKETBORDERWhat I’m reading:

Finished “Tricked” from the library, loved the ending. Sometime soon I’m going to have to start Iron Druid #5; there was a teaser for “Trapped” at the end of “Tricked” and Granuale is finally finishing her druid studies!

Trying to catch up on Asimov’s magazine stories now, and listening to “Heechee Rendezvous” on my iPhone. Love me some Robinette Broadhead and Heechee alien adventure.

Still rereading one of the incomplete drafts that I’m going to be finishing in November: “A Witch of Arion” has been read, and I’m nearly at the awkward cliffhanger in “The Aurigae Express”

What I’m writing:

Steampunk Roswell 51 has been drafted and it’s out to the Team Ambitious critique group. I haven’t started writing anything else; it was a little draining, so I’m concentrating on reading the stories that I have to critique, tackling a few other items from my October to-do list, and getting ready for Nano.

What inspires me right now:

It’s less than half a month until November! I can feel the creative energy rising already.

What else I’ve been up to:

Still learning what I can do with the Nexus tablet. Spent a lot of time with family over the Thanksgiving long weekend. Organizing all my various book collections, including contacting Brilliance Audio to re-download “The Skies of Pern”, which I’d managed to lose my DRM-authorized copies of along the way. They were very helpful about that.

What about you? Click here to join the hop or check in with some other great writers.

    I’ve heard a lot of good things about the Iron Druid series. I have the first three on my Kindle, so I really have no excuse not to check them out sometime. They sound like something I’d like, so that’s good. Good for you for finishing your draft and sending it off to CPs. That’s huge! I’m not taking part in NaNo for real this year, but I’m definitely going to join in on the accountability side of things. I plan on getting some revising done in November and NaNo provides great motivation for that even. Have a great week!


  3. Happy Belated Canadian Thanksgiving! (Or as you guys up there call it, ‘Thanksgiving’.) Hope you get lots of excellent feedback from your critters!

    If you ever need a title for a sequel to your steampunk book, did you know there’s a secret Area 52 in Nevada? You might say there’s not much on the internet re Area 52. Exactly.
