What I’m Reading
I finished BLUE LILY, LILY BLUE by Maggie Stiefvater, the third book in the Raven Cycle. It was really good – five stars. Okay, I have to admit, though, that there were parts of the book that were pretty trippy and parts that I kind of went “huh?” But I’m okay with that because I still love Stiefvater’s writing and I’m good with a trippy storyline and overall it was just darned good. Next up is a folksy-looking book that my book club is reading: POPULATION 485 by Michael Perry. Looks like a nice, easy read.
What I’m Writing
Still working on revisions for THE WITCH OF HIGHLAND FALLS. I would say it’s going slow but steady. 🙂
What works for me
A great writing group! I met with mine last weekend and it was my turn for them to review some of my pages. They had such fantastic ideas for me and I’m so excited to incorporate them into my first 30 pages of TWoHF. They are such a thoughtful, smart group of people and they always help me make my pages better. Thank you, MNYA!!
What Else I’ve Been Up To
Well, possibly the reason my revisions have been going slow is that I’ve been binge-watching The 100 on Netflix. 😦 But it’s really good! It’s got all my favorite elements: futuristic, post-apocalyptic, sci-fi, teenagers in situations that are waaaaay beyond their maturity level. There’s a little more blood than I generally like to see in a TV show but I got over it. I’m almost at the end of the episodes that are on Netflix, though, then it’s right back to “nose to the grindstone!”
Have a great week everyone!
