Okay, let's do this!
I am currently reading ONE by Leigh Ann Kopans and believe me when I say it's really REALLY GOOD. It's light sci-fi with a side of sweet romance. That sounds awesome, right? Well, I'm almost done reading it and it's making me sad because then it means I'll have to say goodbye to the characters until the sequel comes out...*sigh* But, yeah, you'll definitely want to buy this when it releases next month. :)
WHAT I'M WRITING
I am *this* close to reaching 5K on my new project, The Deduction of Shana Nichols. It's a New Adult mystery inspired by Elementary, Nancy Drew and Veronica Mars (just a little). I love the story and my goal is to have a shiny (okay, maybe not TOO shiny) first draft by the end of next month. If you want to read the first page, you can find it here. But, let me be the one to warn you. It sucks at the moment. Really, it does. I'm not even sure I'll keep this beginning but for now it works. Also, the main character, Shana, is so much fun to write. She's really smart and isn't afraid to find answers to questions she has even if it means getting in loads of trouble.
WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW
Well, I will say, at the moment, Elementary is a huge inspiration. I started watching it not too long ago and it is now on my list of shows that I really really love. Not only that but the dynamics between Sherlock/Joan is really interesting. Also, I have a slight crush on Johnny Lee Miller. (And by slight, I mean HUGE.) If you don't watch the show, the first season wrapped up not too long ago so you have time to get caught up before the second season. You won't regret it. I promise.
WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN UP TO
- Nothing much, to be honest. I'm catching up on my shows, writing, and reading. I hope to get a job somewhere soon. I'm going to fill out some applications and I hope I get hired somewhere because being a broke college student IS NOT fun.
- Next week, I have a luncheon with the company who might be giving me an internship next Summer *crosses fingers* so I went to go get an outfit for that. It's supposed to be casual but I still wanted to look nice. Hehe, sorry my life isn't that exciting at the moment. Hopefully I have something more fun to report about next week. :)
How are things going for you guys?
