What's Up Wednesday
This is a weekly meme sponsored by the lovely Jaime Morrow and Erin L. Funk. It's purpose? To help us writerly people keep in touch with each other and say 'What's Up?'
What I'm Reading:
Not much. I stopped by the library yesterday and picked up the first book in Rick Riordan's THE 39 CLUES series (THE MAZE OF BONES) and Donnie Lemke's first book in her TONY HAWK'S 900 REVOLUTION series (DROP IN). Both are middle grade. . .see if I get to them this week or not.
What I'm Writing:
I've had some new ideas for my WIP, so I'm pulling leaves off my tree, reshuffling and putting on fresh buds. That also means I'll have to flip things around in my first 10,000 words before I continue, but I always shove and push and erase and change a lot on the first chapters of a WIP before I really know where the book is headed and can dive into it full swing.
What Inspires Me:
Life. Nature. Everything. I love to go outside and breathe it all in. At the moment, everything is so vibrant and full of energy. It's wonderful.
What Else I'm Up To:
This last weekend was C.R.A.Z.Y!!! My brother and his new wife stopped by for a visit, which went really well. . .I guess. His wife is a huge animal person. We took them with us to the goat auction on Saturday (I need goats so desperately to eat all of our weeds!), where we ended up getting 11 goats. Ug! So many more than I planned!
1 mama with 2 babies (so cute!)
1 mama with 1 baby (he's handsome)
4 half-way bottle babies
1 pregnant goat
1 normal goat
I got carried away and now have more work than anticipated. . .especially since one had a cold and infected all the others now. So today, I have to figure out how to treat all of them.
AND another sister of mine pulled a surprise visit, which was really adventurous since she drives a 53 ft semi trailer. She honestly brought it down the dirt road to our house (took half the trees with her, I think). It was quite the sight (and she almost didn't make it out again). At least, the neighbors had something to gawk at.
And what about you? What are you up to?
