What’s Up Wednesday, weary of winter…

What’s Up Wednesday is a weekly blogfest to share the answers to a few simple questions… Join us!

ROCKETBORDERWhat I’m reading:

Still listening to great stories from Escape Artists and a couple of Audible books, including ‘Excession’ from the Culture series. In print, I’ve been reading more of “That Touch of Magic” by Lucy March, “Knot Gneiss” by Piers Anthony, and “Secret Circle: The Captive” by LJ Smith.

What I’m writing:

Well, I did some last-minute revisions to my Kitchen Scale stuff and sent it off to apply to Kij Johnson’s novel workshop, and I wrote a 5000+ word fantasy/comedy/heist story for the Codex ‘Mega Weekend Warrior’ contest over the weekend. Now I think I’m going to focus on critiquing other people’s writing for a little.

What inspires me right now:

Mary Chapin Carpenter lyrics! Women destroying all kinds of genres. 😉 Jesse Tyler Ferguson — I’ve been watching both ‘Modern Family’ and ‘The Class’, and it’s been cool comparing his performances in two very different comedic roles over nearly eight years.

What else I’ve been up to:

Went to a write-in over the weekend with some local writers. Tried to get a family gathering organized for Family Day here in Ontario, but it didn’t come through, so I ended up working from home for a good chunk of the holiday, so I can get the time back later. Getting ready to move the day job to a new office. Riding the bus in to work as much as I can, so that somebody else has to deal with the winter driving.

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

    I normally love winter, but I’ve had a bit too much of it lately. It’s fun when you’re young, but when you have to pay heating bills… not so much. 🙂 We’re starting to transition to Spring here now, so hopefully we’re through the worst of it. I hope the same goes for you up there, Chris!

    Cool that you wrote a 5000+ word story over the weekend! That’s some wordsmithing. 🙂 I hope this week’s just as productive, if not moreso, for you.

    wow, 5000+ words this weekend, that’s awesome!! (: congrats!

    and I just have to say that I don’t think I can pull off reading as many books as you are reading right now at the same time… lol!


  5. Modern Family is one of my favorite shows, so freaking hilarious! 5k written! Woohoo! If I could I’d totally hire a Chauffer to drive me around.
