The Week That Was 2/16-2/22

This week’s post brought to you by Sam and Dean Winchester.

WRITING

We’re just about halfway through I See the Web! How are you liking it so far? Next week’s installment is the calm before the storm. If you haven’t read yet, start with part one and check back on Tuesdays. Or, wait for the release of the complete story on April 2nd.

It looks like the NA paranormal has completely taken over my writing energies, probably because I’m still (shockingly) watching Supernatural and that was what got the whole plot bunny going. So now, I have to give it a working title. But I’m still not 100% sure where it will go, so I’m just going to call it MIRANDA after the main character.

I’m thinking a lot about the fate of FROM UNDER THE MOUNTAIN. The next several weeks may feature some significant decisions on that front.

Things I blogged about: I See the Web: Part Four, State of Wonder by Ann Patchett (Literary Merit Badges)

READING

Obviously, I finally finished State of Wonder, and you can click above to see my thoughts on it. Overall, I was not wowed. But there are definitely some points that will make for excellent book club discussion, so I’m looking forward to that next Friday.

Other than that, I haven’t made quite as big a dent in my reading list as I wanted to…best laid plans and all that.

LIFE

We had a potentially disastrous wedding kerfuffle that luckily turned out not to be much of a crisis. I may write a blog post about it, because when I was panicking and seeking validation…I didn’t find any.

I’m still feeling a tad generally bummed and am therefore finding it hard to motivate, but it’s been better this week. Once I catch up on everything I’m going to get back to a more set schedule. The problem with working from home is that my dog is terrible at keeping me on task. In fact, all he wants to do is climb on my lap and lick my face. Gets in the way a bit.

Some exciting happenings: today I had my first Twitter-friend-becomes-real-life-friend experience with Kisa Whipkey! We met for coffee and spent the afternoon chatting about life and editing and writing and basically having a good time.

So that was great.
