What's Up Wednesday

I know I'm a late-comer today, but...

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! 


Still vaguely rotating my seven fantasy novels, but have mostly been reading Cruel Beauty by Rosamond Hodge.  I'm enjoying it, and I know Tyler-Rose did because I lent it to her on a Friday evening and got it back that Saturday morning before we had our scones. 

Also Shakespeare's Henriad (so good--and now with awesome movie adaptation! <--yes, that is Tom Hiddleston; your eyes do not deceive you) and other things for class. 


I got a little off track with my rewrite over the weekend.  Re-assessed this morning and am looking to get back into the swing of things over...


...spring break!  I am going home, and I'm going to eat good food and sleep a lot and write stuff.  So pumped. 

Also--did I mention this yet?--Tom Hiddleston as Henry V.  I haven't even watched the movie yet and I'm inspired. 

Tom Hiddleston Henry V
If you're not feeling inspired too, now, we have a problem. 


Homework.  Papers, midterms...  But spring break is coming so it's all going to be okay even though it only lasts a week and will feel like two days but still.  Yay. 
Happy Wednesday, everyone! 


  1. Have a great spring break. Hope it's restful, peaceful, and leads you back to your WiP ^_^

  2. Good luck with your rewrite! Have a great weekend!

  3. I'm excited for you that spring break is coming! I've heard only awesome things about CRUEL BEAUTY, but now you're making me want to get my hands on a copy even more. Must do that soon! I knew about The Hollow Crown, but I have yet to watch it. I love that pic of Tom Hiddleston. Well, any pic of Tom Hiddleston, really. ;-) Hope the days before spring break fly by. Have a great week, Susan!

  4. Spring break! Oh man, I'm dreaming of taking a week off right about now. I hope you get lots and lots of writing and relaxing time. :) Thanks for the eye candy! I needed that.

  5. lol... you and your Tom Hiddleston fixation! Living with 6 girls (wife and 5 daughters), I'm used to this kind of thing, but still... :)

    I hope Spring Break is all you want it to be, Susan--especially in terms of making great progress with your writing. All the very best to you. :)

    1. Thank you! And...I don't know if anyone will believe me when I say this, but my love for this picture is equal parts due to Tom Hiddleston and the character he's playing. Oh, Prince Hal... *stares dreamily into the distance* Haha. I hope you have a great week, Colin!

  6. You had me at Tom Hiddleston. He's wonderful. *dreamy sigh*

    I miss spring break, but since I'm a working "adult" now I don't get any more spring break. Have fun going home and seeing family! Eat some well-earned free home cooking. :)

  7. Have a great Spring Break! Hopefully, it will really be 'springy'. And good luck with those rewrites :)
