WIP Wednesday

Okay, today's post will be a short one. Because I'm in desperate need of studying Spanish and I do better at that when my mom's at work. (Don't look at me like that, I live at home like 3-4 months out of the year. :P )

Edits are very slow. I've been busy reading lots of queries (128 of them yesterday from over the weekend and another day or two from last week) and trying not to fail miserably at Spanish. But I've made a little progress and I'm trying to iron out a few plot details that probably won't matter to most people but I want to have an answer for them nonetheless. So draft 2 is sitting at a whopping almost 3k of all new words. Yea, I told you it was slow going.

In other news, I have an idea that I've been thinking about for a few months now in my head and I can't get it out, but there's no real plot there yet. When I get time I'll see what I can make of it, but it'll be fun and comical and a change of pace if I do it right.

And completely unrelated but not really: please go watch this video of/by Jackson Pearce. I haven't read Sisters Red yet but I really, really want to  and this video just confirms Pearce's awesomeness. Better yet, I'll just show it to you. (No excuses now! Hahaha.) Enjoy! And be sure to tell me how things are going for you, whether you're a writer or not! Read any good books lately? I'd love to hear about them!

Something about that video reminded me of Joss Whedon. She has a Sarah Michelle Gellar look...

I've had no time to write lately. Which is weird, 'cause I'm unemployed. But I AM taking a 10-week Web Design class that is kicking my butt. So yeah. And it's summer.

I can't watch the video where I am right now. But don't fail spanish. Por favor!

And I love the feeling of a new idea floating around in your brain. That's a sweet feeling.

Good luck with Spanish - and everything else :)

That video was awesome! I had heard of Sisters Red, but now really want to read it!

Book trailers and videos are becoming really popular and I think it's an amazing thing. I actually went to see the movie GROWN UPS the other day and they had the trailer for FALLEN at the beginning of the movie.

For good books well that depends on what your interest is...or if you want to just scoff and say "How the heck did she get published?" there is Lauren Conrad's book...
