What's Up Wednesday: Boats Against the Current Edition
I'm catching the What's Up Wednesday hot air balloon from the blogs of Jaime Morrow and Erin Funk. Go to Jaime's blog to add your link and make the rounds to get to know other bloggers!
Here's how it works:
It's similar in some respects to the Currently... post, but it's been whittled down to only four headings to make it quicker and more manageable on a weekly basis. You're invited to join us if you're looking for something to blog about, a way to let your blog friends know what's been going on with you.
Here's how it works:
WHAT'S UP WEDNESDAY
WHAT I'M READING
We read THE GREAT GATSBY for book club Monday night. I love that book so much. No matter how many times I've read it (and I have read it several times), I have a physical reaction to the last line. I know it's coming and still my heart skips a beat, my breath hitches:
It gets me every single time.So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.
I'm also on a Jessi Kirby kick. I read MOONGLASS and IN HONOR and just started GOLDEN. Two of the best books I've read this year. She's a new favorite!
WHAT I'M WRITING
I made some great strides for Ready. Set. Write! over the long weekend and have figured out a couple of missing pieces to the revisions puzzles. I still need to get back into my daily writing routine, however, so THAT, friends, is my goal for the next 7 days: write every single day.
WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN UP TO
We spent the long holiday weekend with HG's family in Wisconsin. Fun times. They live very close to the Mississippi so it's beautiful country. We had a nice family get-together, the kids went to the pool with their cousins, we did a little shopping, we set off fireworks in the driveway, and relaxed. It was nice to get away.
I'm having a ton of fun with the #RGRPhotoADay Bookish Photo Challenge from Raegun Ramblings. Follow me on Instagram here!
WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW
First, let me say thank you for all your kind words and congratulations as I announced my big news last week! My heart is filled and overflowing by your support and kindness.
I'm also quite inspired by this:
If you haven't watched this video, please take three minutes out of your day and do. You won't regret it.
What's up with you this week? What are some of your favorite "last lines" - either book or movie?
