What I’m Reading
This week has been focussed on adjusting to the new job, so I haven’t had much time for reading or writing. I’m currently reading LIVES OF TAO and BLOOD AND FEATHERS: REBELLION.
What I’m Writing
As above, writing time has been slim on the ground. However I’ve got a few short stories under my belt, and edits on DIVIDE THE SKY continue at a smooth pace. I should be past page 100 within the next few days, fingers crossed.
What Inspires Me Right Now
Have you heard of the WELCOME TO NIGHT VALE podcast? If you haven’t listened to it, and you have a fondness for good podcasts, good storytelling, and/or horror, go give it a listen. It is the best podcast I’ve ever listened to. I love it, and it makes quite a change to my usual travelling to work/doing housework soundtracks.
What Else I’ve Been Up To
New workplace is full of ridiculously healthy people, which is a powerful motivational factor…
I walked 3 miles on my lunch the other day. In a cardigan. In 30 degrees celsius. Trying to keep pace with said healthy people. I nearly DIED. Okay, I didn’t, but I was VERY WARM.
This week I also had one of those moments where friend circles overlap (this doesn’t happen often — my circles like to circle within their own circles, generally. Circles.), and it worked out wonderfully.
New friends meeting old friends is always a lot of fun.
How’s your week been, tiny dancers?
