Happy Friday, guys! After a lot of travel, I’m back at home and diving into a new project. Here’s a look at what I’ve been reading and writing in fifteen words or fewer.
Reading: All the Rage by Courtney Summers
A punch in the gut kind of book about rape culture in a small town.
Writing: “…I offered to make Miles a last-minute saint outfit (bathrobe, sandals, tin foil halo).”
It’s been a while since I wrote from the big sister perspective; already digging this new protagonist.
Happy Friday, everyone! I’m kind of stunned that it’s already the first Friday of November–wasn’t it just summer? I was traveling this week and didn’t get a lot of writing done, but I did use my travel time to catch up on some reading, so this week’s Friday Fifteen is a double-dose of micro book reviews:
This Monstrous Thing by Mackenzi Lee
A thrilling take on Frankenstein and what it means to be a monster. Miyazaki adaptation, please!
What I Talk About When I Talk About Running by Haruki Murakami
Loved this look at long-distance running as I prepare for my first marathon.
Happy Friday, all! And Happy (almost) Halloween! This is going to be my soundtrack for handing out candy on Saturday. Let’s get the weekend going with a look at what I’ve been reading and writing, in fifteen words or fewer.
Reading: Front and Center by Catherine Gilbert Murdock
The Dairy Queen series needs more attention; DJ’s story is funny, sensitive, and genuine. LOVE.
Writing: “…we strip off our parkas and boots, slip on our suits and swim caps.”
Working on my next story for the Hanging Garden. Keep an eye out for it on Monday!
Happy Friday, guys! I finished a revision this week (hurray!), so I’m feeling good about heading into the weekend. Let’s kick things off with a look at what I’ve been reading and writing in fifteen words or fewer.
Reading: Things I Can’t Forget by Miranda Kenneally
Questions of faith and summer camp kisses–a thoughtful and sweet combination.
Writing: “There’s been a surprising number of sing-alongs on this trip. Is that a team requirement?”
Yes. Yes it is.
Happy Friday, guys! I’m powering through revisions and am emotionally unprepared for how cold it’s going to get over the weekend here in the Boston area. In the meantime, here’s a look at what I’ve been reading and writing in fifteen words or under.
Reading: The Martian by Andy Weir
Fun and funny and loved how it embraced science. Mentally cast Anthony Mackie as Watney.
Writing: “…pretend that I have a little more creativity than spiking the punch at College Night.”
Character has standards for his pranks.
Happy Friday, everyone! I feel like we’ve had about five weeks packed into one, so I’m glad to be heading into a long weekend. Here’s a look at what I’ve been reading and writing in fifteen words or under.
Reading: Wildlife by Fiona Wood
Sensitive, thoughtful, real—a new favorite contemporary YA. What is it about Australian YA writers?!
Writing: “Dante does also play a mean clarinet…The band people notice stuff like that.”
Back into revisions after a helpful workshop with my wonderful crit group.
