Join in What's Up Wednesday with the lovely Jaime and Erin!
What I'm Reading
*sigh* It finally happened. I DNF'd The Girl With All The Gifts. It's beautifully written, but I just couldn't get into it. I'm going to put it to one side and try again later.
I'm taking a little time out from reading because I'm kind of distracted by...
What I'm Writing
Ah, the life of a pantser. There I was, minding my own business, when monsters decided to throw themselves into my still untitled WiP... Yaaaaaaaay!! Up to 15k, too :D I'd like to aim for 20k by next Wednesday...
What Else I'm Up To
Yesterday was my Mum's birthday and we had an awesome cake made for her. It's a lemon drizzle and I can confirm it tastes amazing:
|My brothers and I, represented by adorable ducklings :D|
In music news, I'm finally getting to grips with Grade IV now for violin. It's always a struggle, the initial transition from one grade to the next. But if I ever doubt myself, I bust out one of my old books and play stuff I once struggled with and it's like "ooooh, great, I CAN BE TAUGHT!" :D
What Inspires Me
Spring. Spring is in the air. It's colder than all of winter, but the birds are singing, the daffodils are blooming and there's just that feeling of change in the air. Aaah, lovely!
But the cold is helpful when you're WiP is all about snow and ice and ice and snow and frost and, you know, cold things!
