WHAT I'M READING
Buy-bye reading slump! All thanks to Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas. There was this thing that happened in the middle that made no sense (and bummed me out because it felt like a device) but then she revealed more about it later so yay for that! Now I'm just starting All the Light We Cannot See by Anothony Doerr which is an adult historical novel set during WWII that my mom gave me for Christmas.
WHAT I'M WRITING
I haven't worked on my WIP since November. I thought I had less than 10k and that it sucked. Turns out, I have 17k and it's not as bad as I thought so yay for that! I've been rereading what I've got so far and then I hope to get right back into 1k a day.
WHAT WORKS FOR ME
Rereading what I've written. I know some people say never look back, but it helps me get back into the groove. Especially since I haven't seen my WIP in a couple of months. But even when I write every day, I always read back what I wrote the day before so I can jump back into the voice and my train of thought.
WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN UP TO
Oh, yanno, Christmas, New Years, visiting parents, daughter turning eight. I saw Annie and The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies (twice). I stayed up late a lot, started watching Call the Midwife (LOVE) and season five of Downton Abbey (yay for that!). And me and the hubs have been trying to catch up with all the shows we watch together. We were four episodes behind on EVERYTHING. We're still not caught up, although me and son have finished all episodes of Doctor Who (who's ready for a new Doctor, raise your hand).
