Hey, I managed to do a blog post today!
Some things that made me happy this week:
An awesome post for when you’re ready to query.
I need to start a series like this.
And when the master makes a list like this, you better take notice.
Reading: After finishing this and getting angry that the sequel hadn’t arrived in the mail, I started reading this, which is just as good as this. But the sequel just came today and I can’t decide what I want to read more. #goodproblemstohave
Writing: The YA fantasy is a bit stuck. I’m trying not to edit as I go but I made a major change to the beginning and am having trouble simply making the note “this happens instead” and moving the plot from there. I think I’m someone who needs to edit as she goes. And I think that’s okay.
Watching: I know I’m about 25 years late, but I started watching this. From the beginning. I like it. And the ’90s hair makes it that much better.
Listening to: Have you heard of this? I had not, but now I’m managing our branded account, so am quickly getting myself acquainted with it. If you’re a regular user, let me know if you have any tips.
Cooking: Quick and easy dinners. Like this one: 1. poach two eggs 2. sauté shallots and shiitake mushrooms 3. put everything over a bowl of arugula and top with salt, pepper, and fresh ricotta 4. eat with a warm baguette. (and some sauvignon blanc, if you feel so inclined).
Have a lovely weekend!
