What’s Up Wednesday is a weekly blogfest to share the answers to a few simple questions… Join us!
Well, I finished “Skin Game” and “Trapped”, and today I started the next Iron Druid book in e-book format from the library, “Hunted.” Also reading a bunch of graphic novels; Buffy season 9 “Guarded”, and the entire run of “Scott Pilgrim!”
Haven’t been listening to any audiobooks since finishing Skin Game, as I’ve been catching up on podcasts like Storywonk, Quirks & Quarks, and Laugh Out Loud.
What I’m writing:
Still working on the Neural Rewiring story, that’s about it. Hopefully I’ll finish the draft around the weekend, if not sooner.
What inspires me right now:
Scott Pilgrim! I finally watched the movie a few weeks ago, really enjoyed it, but I think I like the graphic novels even more. As surreal and hilarious as either version of the franchise is, they share this kind of emotional honesty about finding yourself, learning how to be responsible, how to look for love and treat somebody in a relationship, that really spoke to me. And a really cool, self-deprecating Canadian sensibility, of course. It’s gotten me thinking about what I would want to say if I wrote something that gutsy and true to myself, and who the characters in that story would be.
Also Missy Higgins, “Where I stood”, and “The Nine Lives of Chloe King”, which I’ve just started watching the pilot for.
What else I’ve been up to:
I made it to the Toronto Browncoats screening this weekend, met some new really cool people, and made it to one of my Nanowrimo friends’ place for a potluck the other night. Still trying to prepare for my TNEO lecture, in fact I need to get a handout emailed off tonight, yikes!
