What’s Up Wednesday, the weekly blog post I’ve been part of for two years now, is coming to a close and I am CRUSHED you guys. I met a lot of great people through WUW, and I hope to still keep tabs on them regardless of this change in times (the Feedly RSS reader is great for keeping the blogs I follow in order, it replaced Google Reader for me a while back).
I’m going to keep doing my Wednesday updates, under the new moniker of Writing Wednesdays. If anyone else wants to join me, I’d welcome the company!
What I’m Reading
I powered through S.L. Huang’s ZERO SUM GAME, a really fantastic thriller about an assassin-for-hire who kills people using her incredible knowledge of maths.
I’m TERRIBLE at maths, but I really loved this story — it’s action-packed, filled with some killer twists and turns, and it never got overly mathematical or confusing for the numerically illiterate like myself.
Also, it was wonderful to see an “unlikeable” female character (i loved her, but she definitely breaks the mold and S.L. has discussed this.)
Cas Russell is good at math. Scary good.
I’ve also been reading Horrible Histories: “SCOTLAND” as part of some research into Scottish history. I love these books — they’re great fun, quick overviews of history for adults and kids alike, and they do some fantastic work encouraging interest in history. Also, they’re brilliantly funny and cover some important divides.
What I’m Writing
What Works For Me
Sharing my progress, my rambling thoughts, and my life events here on the blog is what works for me — it keeps me inspired, keeps me connect to you lovely lot, and keeps me accountable.
Which is why I don’t plan on stopping any time soon, and I’ll be figuring out a new way to keep up this regular updates.
What Else I’ve Been Up To
You’re just here for the cute animal photos really, aren’t you? It’s okay. Me too.
