What's Up Wednesday: The Impatient Edition

What I'm Reading
I read Bunheads, which was good. I loved getting into the backstage world of ballet. It reminded me a lot of the reality show Breaking Pointe which I hope comes back this summer for a third season. Last night I finished Torn by Erica O'Rourke (Team Colin!). Today I'm starting the last Covenant novel- Sentinel by Jennifer Armentrout.
What I'm Writing
Still revising SWAY. I don't have major revisions to do, but there are some things I want to change before I do one last batch of queries.
What Inspires Me Right Now
At the moment, I'm more impatient than inspired. It's just one of those weeks where I wish things would move quicker because I have PLANS that I can't get on with until other things happen. Patience, Melanie, patience.
What Else I've Been Up To
I saw The Amazing Spider-man 2 on the weekend. It was kinda cheesy but I liked it. I know a lot of people like these newer Spider-man movies better than the Tobey Maguire ones. I don't know anything about the comic books, so for me, I like both sets of movies equally, just differently. It's weird to me that they'd redo them so soon- especially starting back at the beginning again.
My kids school also had their annual Spring Fling dance. Each grade performs a choreographed dance so it was fun to watch the kids perform (I have kids in grades one, three, and five). They had a blast at the dance except my youngest who wanted to go home and ended up falling asleep on my lap.
Also, tomorrow I'm participating in Michelle Merrill's book release party. She's one of my amazing CPs and I'm so excited that her book is coming out! So come back tomorrow and check it out!


  1. I really want to see the new Spider-Man movie. Looking forward to Maleficent & X-men Days of Future Past this month too. The Spring Fling dance sounds fun =) My kids don't have anything like that at their school.

  2. Very interesting! Most of the people I've talked to about the new Spiderman have thought the Toby McGuire ones were better. I have yet to see the new ones but I love Emma Stone so I feel like she'd carry any movie and I'd like it!

  3. I enjoyed the Toby Macguire trilogy, but I have to confess that I'm partial to Andrew Garfield. He's kind of the quintessential adorable nerd. I'm okay with them redoing the movies, but mostly because I'll watch these superhero flicks as long as they keep pumping them out.

    I hope everything falls into place quickly for whatever it is you're anticipating! Being patient is tough, and I'm not good at it. Have a great week! :)

  4. I find myself getting impatient as well, not a good trait in the writing biz! I like the new Spiderman series more than Tobey Macguire's. I was obsessed with super heroes as a kid and LOVE anything and everything to do with them.
