Back To It

Manic Reading

I've had A Darkness Strange and Lovely by Susan Dennard sitting on my night table for a few days and haven't read one word! What's wrong with me? My break from reading definitely won't last long. I cracked the book open to a random page and picked this teaser:

"You mean when you stole his body and started living in it?" I shook my head and bounded to my feet, my blood boiling back into a rage. "I promised I would send you to the hottest flames of hell for that." (page 59)

Manic Writing

Last week I reread what I had so far in my WIP. And then on Friday and Saturday got just under 3,000 words written. It's not much but it's something. I'm glad to be back in it and my goal is to finish my WIP by Christmas, which should easily be doable.

Manic Watching

My new treadmill show is Smallville. I watched a few of the middle seasons back when it was on and really liked it. No idea why I quit watching. So now I've started from the beginning. It doesn't always have perfect acting or the strongest storylines, but I admit, I'm hooked!

Manic Listening

Yeah, not gonna lie, I've been listening to One Direction. Here's two of my favorite songs from their second album. (The first video is hilarious, FYI.)



  1. you know, 3K in two days is actually on pace for NaNo, so that's actually pretty fast. I don't know what it is about WIP, sometimes they fly off the fingers, and sometimes, you have to be pleased with 100 words a day.

    c'est la vie, and good luck.

  2. awesome job on the 3k! Progress! And Smallville is one of those shows I will always love no matter how crazy and silly the plot got at times.

  3. Yay progress! Hopefully I will be joining you on Team Progress this week :)

  4. Thanks everyone for the words of support! I'm hoping to keep up the progress. :)

  5. Yay, smallville! I'm a fan. Wouldn't he make a good alric? (The older Clark)
