WHAT I’M READING
I was a few chapters into Abigail Haas’ DANGEROUS GIRLS when I had to stop. I’m just not in the right headspace to read about murders. So I turned to an ARC of Elizabeth Eulberg’s BETTER OFF FRIENDS which so far has enough sweet, angsty romance to lift my spirits.
WHAT I’M WRITING
I’ve given myself until the end of February to finish drafting THINGS WE SHOULD HAVE SAID. It’s been the biggest challenge ever to write dual POV and because it’s scary, I’ve been avoiding it, which is a huge no-no. So even if it’s craptastic, it will be finished. I can fix it in revisions. And speaking of, the lovely and talented Sara Biren gave the first 30 pages of PLEASE STAND BY a looky-loo. I’m super impressed with her generous, thoughtful feedback and her editing skills. So huge thanks to Sara for getting me excited about revisions again!
WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW
Anyone who displays resilience and strength during tough times gets my kudos this week. Sometimes it’s hard being the shoulder for others to lean on when you’re feeling weak. Conversely, it’s hard to ask for a shoulder to lean on when you’re normally the rock. Both actions take a great deal of strength and fortitude.
WHAT ELSE I’VE BEEN UP TO
I recently joined the Writer Recharge Challenge hosted and cheerled by the aforementioned Sara Biren, Katy Upperman, Alison Miller, Liz Parker, and Elodie Nowodazkij. This month-long challenge is right on time. I pinky-swear to accomplish the following:
- Complete first draft of THINGS WE SHOULD HAVE SAID by February 28.
- Find time to write every day, no matter what.
- Update this blog at least 2x per week.
