WHAT I'M READING
I'm rotating about seven fantasy novels right now. Somehow reading a ton at once, a little at a time, makes me feel better about how little time I have to read. Tyler-Rose thinks it's insane, and she's right. But no matter how silly it is to think I could effectively read that many books at a time, the mind game is working! I have been (somehow!) reading more non-school fiction this semester than any semester previously.
I've settled on The Girl of Fire and Thorns for now. I find it to be a comforting read.
WHAT I'M WRITING
Still revising/rewriting/revamping my YA Fantasy. Tyler-Rose and I had a re-drafting marathon last Saturday and I advanced A LOT in the revision of my trickiest, stickiest, most problem-child-ey plotline.

WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN UP TO
So, remember how our suite flooded and we had to move out?
Well, it's un-flooded and supposedly safe to inhabit again.
Which is great, except that it's the middle of the semester and nobody's life packs itself in boxes. (Okay, fine, that happens in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. ALAS, WE ARE MUGGLES. But Tonks could come save me anyway, right? Please????)
So, we'll be around, but mostly we'll be moving our stuff around.
Here, have a sad Scottish song about people drowning:
.....Okay, fine. Here's a happy song, too. I LOVE this song:
