What’s Up Wednesday is a weekly blogfest to share the answers to a few simple questions… Join us! It’s been a while since I joined in, went on WUW hiatus for the A-Z challenge, but it’s great to be back.
Short stories from F&SF, Strange Horizons, and Daily Science Fiction. I’ve also been loving listening to ‘Neuromancer’ — thank you Hamilton Public Library for making it available as a digital audio download! And speaking of the library, I just found out that “Witches Abroad” is finally ready for pickup, after weeks of waiting on the hold. (Apparently they lost one copy of the book at the central branch, but the other got returned from a borrower in Dundas.)
I’ve also been listening to “The Handmaid’s Tale” here and there, nearly finished and I love how the narrator gets sidetracked picking at her own language, trying to understand how the roots of idioms affect how people use them. And still squeezing in some Escape Pod stories; read “A Rose for Ecclesiastes” the first time on podcast and loved it!
What I’m writing:
Back to revising, mostly the new outline for “Time Bubble Blues”, though I need to make some changes to “Gotta Have That Look” as well. I’ve also got a lot of critiques to finish for the ‘Never-Ending Odyssey’ workshop.
What inspires me right now:
Having time to write on the bus, and the sunny warm weather. Still loving the Chromebook, which is good. Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, which I’ve been marathoning on this past week and I’m up to the crossover storyline with the Captain America movie! Hmm… can I call my Angry Birds inspiring too? 😉
What else I’ve been up to:
Work, making time to be with family, trying to spring-clean the kitchen, particularly so that the air conditioner guy has room to work there. Booked my flight to Kansas and back for the Young Gunns workshop in June!
What about you? Click here to join the hop or check in with some other great writers.
This is so tempting because it is a great way to let people get to know you and to get to know other people. Will think on it, but it was nice to get a slice of your life. We are Chromebooking, too, catching up on House of Cards. It’s rather scarey, given that so many people don’t have a favorable opinion of Washington right now.
I watched the first few episodes of Shield, but lost interest. I might have to start watching again. Good luck with revisions!
I’m a couple of episodes behind on SHIELD but I really want to watch them because of ALL THE BIG THINGS going on.
Have a great week!
I’ve read the Handmaid’s Tale – a fascinating story. “Time Bubble Blues” is such an interesting title – makes me want to know more.
