What's Up Wednesday: The Sam Smith Edition

What I'm Reading
I read We Were Liars by E. Lockhart which was really good. I loved the writing and the characters and I finished it in a day and a half. The only thing I didn't love were the fairy tales the MC kept "telling." Now I'm reading Hexed by Michelle Krys which is a fun witch book (I haven't read one of those in a long time).

What I'm Writing
Nothing this week. I'm critiquing a CPs manuscript and taking a break from my own stuff and trying to jump every time my email dings.

What Inspires Me Right Now
I've been listening to Sam Smith's CD on repeat. He's so awesome. There's a couple of songs which go great with my WIP. Here's a few lines from Not In That Way:

And I hate to say I love you
When it's so hard for me
And I hate to say I want you
When you make it so clear
You don't want me

I'd never ask you cause deep down
I'm certain I know what you'd say
You'd say I'm sorry believe me
I love you but not in that way

And from Like I Can:
Why are you looking down only one road
Mine is the heart, the soul for your soul
There may be lovers who hold out their hands but
He'll never love you like I can, can, can

We both have demons, that we can't stand
I love your demons, like devils can
What Else I've Been Up To
Not much this week. Finished watching season 3 of Being Erica and moved onto season 2 of Doctor Who. Went to lunch to celebrate getting a request from the New Agent contest. Got a 2nd request from the contest. Played Ticket to Ride and Mexican Train with the kids. Took the kids to Calaway Park which is an amusement park outside Calgary. They loved it of course, except we got caught in the rain for awhile and had to wait it out. They didn't love that so much!

What have you been up to?
