What's Up Wednesday

I seem to have become a bit addicted to blog hops lately, it's because I love having the pressure of having a topic to write about taken off if me for the moment.  Life has sucked any and all of the creative ideas I once had out of my brain and I am stuck staring at my computer screen blankly most days.  That's where finding interesting blog hops to join and find fresh things to write about (give me a kick in the pants to write) comes in.


What's Up Wednesday is a blog hop created by Jamie Morrow and Erin Funk to help writers connect.  I need a little encouragement in the area of writing these days so I felt motivated to join in and find some new friends.  The headings for the WUW posts are:

WHAT I'M READING
WHAT I'M WRITING (+ WRITING GOAL)
WHAT WORKS FOR ME
WHAT ELSE IS NEW

WHAT I'M READING

Right now I am reading a wonderful mish-mash of things for various reading challenges and reviews.  I have on the go War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy, Hyrule Historia by Akira Himekawa and maybe four other books that I am enjoying as well.  I firmly believe in reading all the things at all times.

WHAT I'M WRITING (+ WRITING GOAL)

I am currently working on the never ending novel project.  It started as my NaNo project in 2013 and while NaNo was a fail I loved the idea and have been working on it however inconsistently ever since,  I have, however, now written myself into a corner so to speak and am not sure how to get back out again so it has sat untouched for the last two months. 

My goal for the week is to bring it out and write something on it, ANYTHING, just to get the story moving again.  I can sort the logistics of it out later.   

WHAT WORKS FOR ME

I write my best surrounded by hustle and bustle.  So I spend my day off at Starbucks blowing my paycheck on Triple Venti Caramel Machiatos and cranking out the word count.  Or my blog for the week.  Or my pen pal letters.  (yes guys, those do exist. They are coming I promise)

WHAT ELSE IS NEW

The kidlets got the stomach flu last week and threw my whole life out of whack as par usual.  I don't even know what in whack is anymore so I think I may stop saying that.  That's about the extent of my excitement.

  1. I have a never ending novel project, too. I've had it since about 2000--maybe '99. At least when people ask me what I'm writing, I can say "a novel."

    Love,

  2. These blog hops do serve as the perfect blog prompts, don't they? It's exhausting coming up with topics each week. I made a list a while ago as ideas came to me and they keep getting bumped for things like promoting new books or blog hops--so I have enough to last 'til May now! (But that includes taking all of April for the A to Z challenge.)
