I finished Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein last night and augh. AUGH. Her books. Seriously. They are just SO MUCH I don't have the words. I will add that I don't think this book is quite as good as Code Name Verity but it's still SO GOOD. And note to self: don't read books about concentration camps right before bed because you won't get much sleep.
I've made good progress on EPONINE. I'm right in the middle section now and this is the stuff that needs the most work. Yesterday I cut cut cut and combined a bit and today I've got some new-fangled scenes to write. Yeehaw!
What Inspires Me Right Now
I was listening to this song yesterday and suddenly the words jumped right out at me and I had to replay and replay because I could totally place it in a specific spot in EPONINE. Love that!

What Else I've Been Up To
The hubs and I took the kids to The Lego Movie on the weekend and I hate to say I was disappointed. The kids thought it was great, the guy next to me was howling, but I just... didn't. The graphics of the lego building were pretty cool (and they had DUMBLEDORE for a split second and with a weird voice) but that's about it. There's so many other good kids movies these days that this one just didn't live up. Sorry, Lego Movie but everything is not awesome.
What is awesome? MERLIN. I'm on season five and I love it and I'll be SO SAD when it's over. Also (mini-spoiler coming), Arthur better figure out Merlin has magic before the season ends or I'm going to have a hernia. AUGH!
What have you been up to?
