What's Up Wednesday

I'm switching it up this week. Instead of answering the usual Road Trip Wednesday question, I'm going to join Jaime Morrow's What's Up Wednesday.

What I'm Reading

I'm STILL reading Opal by Jennifer Armentrout. It hasn't been a slow or hard read, I've just been too busy with other things. Up next is Requiem by Lauren Oliver and Star Cursed by Jessica Spotswood.

What I'm Writing

I'm STILL plugging away at my YA Urban Fantasy WIP. It's been slow going, which is discouraging sometimes. Even though it's been a tricky WIP, I'm not giving it up. I know I'll finish it someday. I've also been beta-ing two manuscripts- a contemp YA by a wonderful critique partner, and an adult historical by a lady who goes to my church.

What Inspires Me Right Now

I'm always inspired by other writers. Sometimes I feel like I move so slowly compared to others, but on the other hand, they push me to keep at it. Another thing that's inspired me with a Shiny New Idea is this:

What Else I've Been Up To

I mentioned yesterday I spent the Canada Day long weekend in Vancouver with my 9-year-old. We saw Taylor Swift's Red Tour concert which was just amazing. The only prob was I got us floor seats which is a major mistake with a child. She couldn't see a thing once everyone stood and so we had to go stand in the back. Next time, I'll get seats around the sides like we had when we saw her Speak Now concert. We did get up close when she came and sang on the little stage at the back, so I ended up with a couple of okay pics like this one.
