What's up Wednesday (our first ever!)

*peeks over her laptop screen*  Hello?  Can I come in? 

This is my first time doing What's Up Wednesday.  Basically ever since I saw that Jaime and Erin were starting a weekly meme together, I wanted to join.  But somehow it didn't happen until now...so here goes! 

Hosted by the lovely sisters Jaime Morrow and Erin L. Funk, What's Up Wednesday is a weekly meme/blog hop in which writer-bloggers take a brief post to share what's going on in their lives, writing-related and otherwise.  Check it out here or here if you want the details! 



WHAT I'M READING

Villette by Charlotte Bronte.  So far it has been...super-weird, to be honest.  In the coolest, Charlotte Bronte-esque way, of course.  But don't expect Jane Eyre if you pick it up. 

I'm also nearing the end of Throne of Glass--need to set aside some time to finish that soon. :)


WHAT I'M WRITING

Working on a comprehensive rewrite of THE MADMAN'S CROWN and have finally started transitioning back into the drafting stage.  (Before I was spending most of my time going through exercises from Donald Maass's Writing 21st Century Fiction.)


WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW

This song...


Also this song...  


Um...yeah.  They totally go well together...


WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN UP TO

I'm going to pull a partner-blogger moment and talk about Tyler-Rose instead of me here.  She's in a graphic design class, and has been making us some new personalized buttons which I should (?) finally get to see today!  They should be featured on our About Us page eventually.  I'm very excited. :) 

Oh--maybe I will talk about me a bit.  I've been trying to decide lately whether or not I should make caffeine a part of my life.  I'm not a coffee or caffeinated tea drinker....yet....  I could really use it, but I'm pretty sensitive to it and sometimes it makes me anxious.  I will probably just continue fighting sleep deprivation with sheer will power.  -_-


Well that wasn't so hard.  :)  Looking forward to meeting you all!  Happy Wednesday!

  4. Glad you are joining in What's Up Wednesday! Throne of Glass is so dang wonderful, and Crown of Midnight may be better. I love Chaol. I love Dorian. I love Celeana.

    Which brings me to how much I LOVE the title of your MS.

    I am a coffee drinker, diet coke drinker, all things caffeine drinker. I am not a good person to get life advice from when it comes to what you should drink.

  5. Welcome to What's Up Wednesday! We have so much fun every week. So glad you could join us!

    Also, THE MADMAN'S CROWN sounds like it would be so full of awesome (which I'm sure it is). I'm working on a comprehensive rewrite of my current story and hope to get LOTS done in November.

    Have a great week!

  6. Welcome!

    I generally avoid caffeine b/c I get jittery for about an hour, then I get really sleepy. It's a vicious cycle :)

    1. It's the same for me. Rejoice! We have been blessed with a fussy metabolism that wants us to look out for our liver.

  7. I wish I could like coffee, but caffeine doesn't seem to work on me that well. So I struggle along with hot chocolate and tea with too much sugar in.

  8. Hooray for coffee and tea! I love both, even if I'm sensitive to caffeine. My tip is to switch to decaf after noon. Good luck with your rewrite!

  9. I love the name of your WIP and also your blog!
    Good luck with your rewrites. I'm planning the same thing for November.
    I couldn't survive without tea!

  10. I love the title of your WIP! I wish I was good at coming up with titles :/

    Also, I love "Counting Stars" and it's another of those songs I've been obsessed with lately.

    As far as caffeinated things go, I'd definitely go with tea to start. It doesn't have as much caffeine as coffee. Green tea and white tea have the least, as far as things with substantial caffeine content go :)
