What’s Up Wednesday? The creative doldrums…

What’s Up Wednesday is a weekly blogfest to share the answers to a few simple questions… Join us! And if you’re looking for Insecure Writer’s Support Group, I’ll probably be posting tomorrow.

TreeWhat I’m reading:

Well, I got a lot of reading done this week, especially when I was waiting in lines at Fan Expo. Finished “Lords and Ladies”, the novelization of “Spider-man 3”, and “Command Decision.” Read about five graphic novels, including two Doctor Who comics, and the first three volumes of the hilariously weird “Chew.” Reached the halfway point on “Annals of the Heechee”, started Elizabeth Moon’s “Victory Conditions”, and listened to some more Escape Artists.

What I’m writing:

Not that much just at this moment. Started fleshing out an urban fantasy idea that I may be saving up for Nanowrimo this year. I actually got the idea from the character prompts in a Dresden Files RPG session I played at Fan Expo, a girl with stealth magic who was ‘lost and never found.’

What inspires me right now:

Weird comic books, all the geeky energy I got from the crowds at Fan Expo, new Doctor Who episodes with Peter Capaldi, and Harry Potter movies.

What else I’ve been up to:

Went shopping for iPads with my Mom tonight, though she couldn’t find the model and color she wanted. Getting ready for a jam-packed weekend; trivia night in Dundas on Friday, then the BrightRun fundraiser for breast cancer on Saturday, and an epic write-in Sunday afternoon!

  1. So what do you think about Command Decision? Did you ever see the 1948 movie?


    • I loved Command Decision, but I don’t think the book I read had anything to do with that movie. 😉 I read the Elizabeth Moon book, military sci-fi, part of the Vatta’s War series.


      • You have to realize I am not only from an older generation but also have a thing for old movies! Not old enough to be a movie goer in 1948 but the name just jiggled a memory! Thanks for schooling me!!!

    Chris now I definitely want to read CHEW! I’ve been reading that agents are looking for more nerdom in novels these days so that’s great that inspiration struck a chord right where there happens to be a desire for it! Sara


    • Thanks, it’s worth checking out by probably not for everybody. I’ve been skipping by some of the gross stuff as quickly as I can.

        I’m kind of into gross stuff actually… I used to be medical writer and editor and my specialty is infectious diseases so…what can I say. The dark and messy stuff is captivating for me. 🙂


  3. You like Doctor Who? You must be an intelligent life form! I like the new episodes with Peter Capaldi also. I came to your blog looking for your IWSG post, but this one is good, too. Blessings,

    Oooh, I loved Lords and Ladies! The Dresden Files RPG sounds excellent as well. I hope the BrightRun goes well!
