What’s Up Wednesday? October already…


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

What I’m WUWMaple65%2reading:

More Xanth; I finished “Esrever Doom” and started “Board Stiff”, which the library had as an ebook. Also plowed through Larry Niven’s “The Magic Goes Away” in a few days, and read a bunch of stories from Crossed Genres, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, and Nightmare.

What I’m writing:

I’ve started a new round of revisions on my funny sci-fi story, “Return to Civilization”, based on feedback I got at Young Gunns. I’ve also dived into doing more prep for my 2 Nanowrimo ideas, and I’ve been doing a fair bit of critiquing.

What works for me:

My new living room table workstation! This is actually based on a setup I had a while ago – my black wooden IKEA chair is set against the broad side of the table I got from my parents, opposite the comfy armchair which faces the television. There’s lots of good lighting in that area, and I have the new refurb Dell laptop set up there, and it’s been a great place to get some work done, including critiquing and getting into revisions.

What else I’ve been up to:

Getting into the new season of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D”, loading dual-boot Xubuntu onto my red netbook, and sorting out Thanksgiving dinner plans with the family! (Canadian Thanksgiving is this coming Monday, in case you didn’t know that.)

    I haven’t read Xanth in eons. That takes me back. So does Niven for that matter. good luck with the nano prep.

  2. I haven’t read the Xanth books in forever. I haven’t even heard of the ones you mentioned, actually. I lost touch with the series in about 1988, I think. Glad you’re enjoying the re-read.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving. Your writing area looks like an active writer’s den. Comfy chair and lots of paper!

    😀 Years ago, I read all of the available Xanth books over one summer. I think my favorite character was Metria.
