What I'm Reading:
Just finished The Sea Sisters by Lucy Clarke. I really enjoyed it. The author's love of travelling seeps into her descriptions; she really made places come alive for me. The amazon blurb reads:
Katie’s carefully structured world is shattered by the news that her headstrong younger sister, Mia, has been found dead in Bali – and the police claim it was suicide.
With only the entries of Mia’s travel journal as her guide, Katie retraces the last few months of her sister’s life, and – page by page, country by country – begins to uncover the mystery surrounding her death.
It did hold my interest; I'd recommend!
What I'm Writing:
Still editing editing editing. Smashed my 5 chapter goal by getting 10 done so aiming for 10 this week (ho ho ho now I'll get 2 done as I have much less time this week!). #readysetwrite is helping me motivate as I didn't want to report not making my goal! :)
What Inspires Me Right Now:
Wimbledon is on, and as ever when I watch highly successful athletes, I am inspired by their determination. Andy Murray loses Wimbledon 2012 and it only inspires him to an Olympic Gold Medal and US Open success. It's inspiring to see people get up and try again, work harder and harder. That's what we have to apply to writing, I think!
What Else I've Been Up To:
The tomatoes I'm growing are now going yellow - yay! Otherwise my work's been busy busy busy.
What's UP with you?
