It's Wednesday again. What's up with you?
What I'm Reading
I just finished MILA 2.0. It's a great book! I would probably give it four stars, because five stars for me is me jumping up and down and pestering all my friends to read it. I wasn't quite that crazy over it, but it's still good. And I cried at the end. MILA 2.0 also gets major points for one of the best mom-daughter dynamics I've read in a long time.
What I'm Writing
Contracted, as usual. And...um...oops. Big oops. I kind of...accidentally reached 50,000 words. :P Before November. Bad me! Oh well; I was going to NaNoRebel this one anyway. Now my NaNo goal will be to finish the story, I guess. I have no idea how many words that will take.
What Else I'm Up To
Making ravioli. And, weirdly, crying a lot for no known reason. I did just get new contacts, so it's probably a reaction from the rest of my body to my eyes feeling watery and irritated a lot. I also just finished a stage role where I had to cry, so I had to practice making myself cry. And now I'm crying at everything (though MILA 2.0 was a valid thing to cry about).
I cried during a commercial. I cried watching Legend of Korra. I cried when I was brushing my hair. WTF. There doesn't seem to be any emotion attached to most of these things; it's just a physical reaction. But I'm not the weepy kind of hormonal (I'm the bitchy kind). Oops, there I go again. I'm tearing up writing this blogpost. I don't get it. I hope this is a phase.
What Inspires Me Right Now
I'm knitting a pillow and it has turned out really nicely. It still needs more stuffing, though. Also, I had great heaps of fun writing a Sub-genre Party post, and it needs comment love. :) People sometimes assume fantasy is stagnant or formulaic, but there are so many angles you can take on it. I am reminded of why I love to read and write fantasy.
