What’s Up Wednesday is a weekly meme started by Jaime Morrow and Erin Funk that allows us to touch base with blog friends and let them know what’s up.
WHAT I’M READING
THE LOOKING GLASS by Jessica Arnold, which is the same as last week, but I am moving in slow-motion this month.
WHAT I’M WRITING
In keeping with my slow theme, I’m still working on my final read-through. I’m not even making any real changes, but I find myself tweaking the wording on pretty much every sentence, only to eventually change it back to what I had originally.
I know I’m overthinking the whole thing, but I can’t seem to help myself. I should hurry, though, because I’ve decided that my first batch of queries is going out May 16th. That’s my dad’s birthday, so it seems like a good choice to begin the query journey toward eventually potentially good news.
WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW
My mom has the goal of walking a 5k next month and she’s talked me into walking with her. I’ve never done any sort of race before, so I’m excited. Maybe one day I’ll even run a 5k, but I doubt it because I’ve always been more of a sprinter. I think I’d be good at something like a .5k. Big burst of energy and then time to rest. Perfect.
WHAT ELSE I’VE BEEN UP TO
Watching a Challenger baseball game. It was so much fun to cheer all the players on.
Randomly remembering the PBS show “Ghostwriter” that aired during the early 1990s. It’s funny to re-watch stuff after 20 years and see how cheesy it actually was. My 13-year old self thought it was awesome, although I wonder how much of that stemmed from my giant crush on one of the characters?
Watching another so-bad-it’s-hilarious movie on Netflix with my younger bro:
As far as I can gather, an experiment went wrong and it screwed up the Earth’s core and caused a bunch of tornados…or maybe hurricanes…dust storms…lightning strikes? The weather couldn’t make up its mind and the special effects budget seems to have been about $30.
Anyway, a hot air balloon enthusiast and his family drove to the mountains to get to higher ground. At one point they drove THROUGH the storm. Amazing. Balloon-man was also a science expert because the people who screwed up the experiment kept calling him with questions. My brother asked, “Are they just randomly stringing together a bunch of sciencey sounding words?”
Yep. Pretty much.
And that’s as much as I can tell you because I wouldn’t want to spoil the ending.
