What’s Up Wednesday is a weekly blogfest to share the answers to a few simple questions… Join us!
Still listening to plenty of great podcasts from Escape Artists, plus ‘Sandman Slim’ and ‘Excession’ from the Culture series. On the e-reader I’ve been reading the new Lucy March fantasy, ‘That Touch of Magic’, and short mysteries from “The Return of Sherlock Holmes”
What I’m writing:
Completed another flash fiction for the Weekend Warrior contest on Codex. Making some progress on the ‘Kitchen Scale’ stuff, both on the synopsis and my sample pages. Not sure if I’ll make my original goal of applying to Kij Johnson’s workshop by the 13th, but there should still be room if I take a few extra days.
What inspires me right now:
Old sitcoms like The Class, Married with Children and Malcolm in the Middle. Hanging out with awesome writers on Codex, and figuring out that I’ve met some of them in person at Young Gunns. The new souper-seekrit Team Ambitious IRC room…
What else I’ve been up to:
Avoiding the winter weather when I can and stressing myself out when I can’t, sigh. Hanging out with family a little. Playing around with programming projects, like adding song sorting to my Android music rater.
What about you? Click here to join the hop or check in with some other great writers.
What’s this? A flash fiction contest I didn’t know about? Tell me more! I love writing flash fiction–so much so, that’s what I’m doing for the A-Z blogging challenge this year. 🙂
Hopefully we’ll all be done with winter soon. I’m ready for spring, and it sounds like you are too, Chris.
Have an awesome week! 🙂
