Currently playing on the iPod: Paper Planes by MIA
Currently drinking: A peppermint mocha (Mmmm)
Current attire: Pajamas (Damn straight!)
Current mental state: Thinking I’m seeing some of the forest, and not just trees. Caveat: It could just be something on my glasses
Currently reading this week: The Golden Compass by Phillip Pullman and Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
Books I’ve read since I began my MFA program: 14
Goal this month: Try to get my head around the idea of “writing closer to the bone” and really getting deep into my characters. That’s lofty–”wrapping my head around”…. What’s the first step in a twelve step program? Ah yes, admitting you have a problem. Perhaps that is my goal this month. In which case, I’ve already met it. Wheeee!
Recent reads I would recommend: How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff and Sabriel by Garth Nix
Queries agonized over and sent out: 0 (How do I feel about that? Great! I’m giving myself the next two years of complete freedom from all things publishing)
I hope you are all doing well! What’s going on in your lives this week? Any recent reads you recommend? Life realizations you’ve come too? Coffee drinks I really must try?
(Because, seriously, the toddler is not sleeping…)
