Happy 2014 to all. Ok, let's do this. What's up Wednesday.
What I'm reading
Finishing Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. I really like it. It's fast-paced and has some really good world-building. I'm also reading Skellig by David Almond.
What I'm writing
I am working on a YA novel right now. It's a major overhaul of an existing work. I guess it's YA fantasy, but it only has one very crucial fantasy element in it, so I feel it's actually more contemporary YA than fantasy.
What inspires me right now
Having a lot of time off over the holidays was great. It proved to me how much I can really get done. So I'm still riding on that high, as well as getting back into the real world crap.
What else I've been up to
My MG novel should be going on submission soon, but I don't think I'll be blogging about it. Just crossing my fingers and hoping for the best.
I also joined a great community of kidlit writers. It's called the Enchanted Inkpot. Check it out.
My goal this year is to read more contemporary YA. What about you? I hope the Muse shines her light on you this year.
