Whats Up Wednesday

I have joined a great Wednesday Meme...

What's Up Wednesday is a weekly meme geared toward readers and writers, allowing us to touch base with blog friends and let them know what's up. It's hosted by the lovely Erin and Jaime.

What I'm Reading
Compared to Monument 14 (bk 1) by Emmy Laybourne, Monument 14: Sky on Fire (bk 2) is starting off a bit slow but still has kept my attention. I'm a sucker for dystopian and apocalyptic reads, so when it comes to kids of all ages, being stranded during a national collapse, it gets my blood pumping.

What I'm Writing
Currently I am writing a few WIP's but I'm struggling on a section with each one and have taken a break to wrap my head around the direction I want to take. Eh, that's why they are called Work's In Progress, right?!

What Else I've Been Up To
The other day I bought a Soffe mesh tank top which isn't even half of what I need to be prepared for the Urban Adventure Bike Race in July. Initially I wasn't going to do this Amazing-Race-type-obstacle-bike-course because my husband said he wasn't up for it this year. However, a high school friend of mine said her friend bailed on her and she wanted to know if I could help her out because the only way to enter is to have a partner and she LOVES this race. Well I can't leave a friend hanging can I? So I said sure. Our race name: Black Widows, race colors: Pink and Black. More race info to follow in the coming weeks.

What Inspires Me Right Now
Anything ADVENTUROUS! Now that summer has arrived I'm totally stoked to be out-n-about doing anything that gives me a rush!

Hope everyone has a great Wednesday!


  1. I'm still waiting for our summer to appear! The weather's a little indecisive at the minute - one minute it's sunny but as soon as I go out to the garden the clouds come out. The bike race sounds fun!
    Good luck getting past your problem sections, sometimes a break can work wonders :)

  2. A bike race! Now that sounds like fun! Good luck!

  3. I'm going camping this weekend, so I know what you mean. I love summer!

  4. To adventure! Nice of you to help a friend and best of luck with your WIP.

  5. Yay to adventure! And you're right, sometimes it's better just to step back from the stories for a bit.

  6. Now that it's warm out I run outside all the time! I love the fresh air!

    Monument 14 sounds really neat! I'll have to check that out.

  7. Sounds like your pretty busy! I haven't written in a long time. Too darn busy trying to get all the summer stuff done

  8. I'm on the East Coast, so we're having a monsoon summer so far. >.>

  9. OH! This sounds like a fun meme, but I haven't heard about it til reading your post! Or if I have, I didn't pay attention. :/

    The race sounds awesome and hell-a tiring! You go girl!!!


I heart me some good comments... and pumpkin spice latte's too!
