It's Wednesday again!
Man, I had plans to blog more this week, which did not happen due to reasons which shall be explained below :)
So what have I been up to?
What I'm Reading
Secretariat by William Nack.
I am a sucker for horse stories, especially racehorse stories, starting of course with The Black Stallion which I devoured as a kid. I loved Laura Hillenbrand's Seabiscuit. I'm in the mood to read some nonfiction while I work on my own manuscript, and Ill be honest, I've never found Secretariat the horse a very exciting subject. He always seemed like the upper crust jock type, another Winkelvoss of the already Winkelvossy Thoroughbred world. He doesn't have a good Bad Boy or Underdog story. He was a really nice horse bred from exceptional stock by impossibly wealthy people. So I'm going to see if this book can surprise me.
What I'm Writing
Working on a clean up of the middle grade manuscript that landed me my awesome agent (!)
What Inspires Me Right Now
The ticking of the Last Day of School Clock. Only a few more precious days until sonny boy is released into my custody for the whole entire summer. And while I adore having him around all day, there will be much less quiet writing time, very soon.
What Else I've Been Up To
Prepping for my first 5k, this weekend! I had to get fancy socks.
