What's Up Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jaime Morrow and Erin Funk.
WHAT I'M READING
I'm currently reading Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott. It's quite inspiring. I'm having a blast highlighting quotes to share later. Seriously, most of the book is highlighted in yellow. It's that good. I highly recommend it if you're looking for a good book on writing.
WHAT I'M WRITING
For the past few weeks I've had writer's block. I've tried to write but nothing feels right. I guess I just haven't found the right project yet. Anne Lamott, in Bird by Bird, says when you feel like you can't write it's because that project isn't one you're completely passionate about.
I'll have to take it bird by bird.
WHAT WORKS FOR ME
Schedules. Writing in the morning. Pinterest. I also read something the other day that I think might help, writing to music. You play the same piece every time you sit down to write. I'll definitely give it a try.
WHAT ELSE IS NEW
I put my MG up on Wattpad to read for free. I'm a little addicted to refreshing my profile, but it's been great so far, definitely encouraging.
Jan 1, 2015
These are my goals for the month of January:
Read at least 4 books
Blog 2x per week
Start on a new WIP
That's it. Three simple bookish and writerly goals. They should be pretty easy to achieve. I can't wait to report back at the end of the month to see how well I've done. As well as wanting to read four books, I'm doing the Popsugar Reading Challenge.
