What's Up Wednesday is hosted by Jaime Morrow and Erin Funk, to help writers and bloggers keep in touch as we scribble. :)
What I'm reading
I'm relishing the chance to sit down with Fragments by Dan Wells, the sequel to Partials. It's a post-apocalyptic science fiction YA series, and it's phenomenal. Dan Wells' world is the most well-thought-out, detailed, and possibly most scientifically accurate vision of the post-apocalyptic Earth that I've ever read. Also, I love these characters, and my recent favorites are some new introductions. I love seeing how the changing circumstances affect these characters and their relationships.
What I'm writing
I'm on break from writing right now. I wrote up until when I would have to write the awkward sex scene and the really complicated public event scene. Those scenes will be harder technically. I don't have writer's block; I'm just avoiding them. I'll admit it. In the meantime, I'm planning to do Camp NaNo in July with a new project. It ought to be fun...
What else I'm up to
I graduated on Sunday! I even wrote a post about it.
My feelings are mainly of relief. As Ty commented on the above post, college is "one of the final times that most of your movements are judged so closely by the standards of someone else's views of success." I'm still going on to graduate school, but at least now I can focus on what I really wanted to study all along.
What inspires me right now
Chocolate. And Fragments. And the big, exciting TBR pile that I will now finally have time for. Also, crocheting. I'm making a blanket/couch throw in "springy" colors, and it's coming out really well. It looks lovely.
