What I’m Reading

I didn’t get a whole lot of reading done this week. I’m still working on SOMEONE ELSE’S LOVE STORY by Joshilyn Jackson, and enjoying it!

What I’m Writing

I had a breakthrough on the character development that was hanging me up on my WiP, FALLING. I finally know what Lucy’s problem is! Now I’m working on developing it a little more and then I’ll get back to revisions – and then more drafting! I know there are oodles of ways to do character development but, if you are interested, I found a great worksheet template at this site.

What inspires me right now

I started the Minimalism Game last Friday, which I wrote about in last week’s WUW. So, I’ve been getting rid of items every day – the number of items in correlation with the date. I can honestly say that it has not been a hardship. At all. As of today, I’ve gotten rid of 21 things (more than that, actually, because there was one day I got carried away). Many of those things have come from my bathroom drawers – lotions that I’ve gotten as gifts that I didn’t really like, exfoliating creams that I was guilted into buying at one of those home parties that I was guilted into going to, hair holders that I’ll probably never use again (probably haven’t used in 10 years) … stuff like that.  I’m really liking this challenge so far!

What Else I’ve Been Up To

Have you seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet? If you haven’t, seriously… what are you waiting for? Hubby and I saw it on Saturday and it has already earned a place in my Top 10 favs. It’s exactly the right balance of action, feels and comedy. The comedy might be my favorite part. And the soundtrack! That is just the icing on the cake. I’m kinda glad that my youngest was away from home when we went to see it because now I have an excuse to go see it again. I mean, I have to take her, right?!

Have a great week everyone!

    I saw Guardians of The Galaxy last night and I loved it. I sand Ooh Child all night last night. Thanks for sharing.

  2. That minimalist challenge sounds good. A couple of times a year I tend to get rid of clothes in my closet if I didn’t wear them that season. I just did this with a bunch of shirts. I love to purge- it always feels good to get rid of useless stuff!
    LOVED Guardians of the Galaxy. And my hubs was the lucky one- he got to see it twice by taking my son.

      I love to purge every once in a while, too. I am actually having a hard time doing just the right number of items each day for this challenge – I get started and I want to keep going! But I need to save stuff for when I get up into the 20s! Have a great week, Melanie!

    Hope the challenge continues to run smoothly, and hooray for the breakthrough 😀

  4. I must be the only person who hasn’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet…

    Glad to hear about the character breakthrough! 🙂

  5. I’m glad to hear the minimalist game is going well for you. I would start with the bathroom, too. I haven’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet, but I’m planning to go.
