Today I'm participating in What's Up Wednesday, a weekly writing blog hop to stay in touch, hosted by Jaime Morrow and Erin L. Funk.
I just started AVALON by Mindee Arnett. I really enjoyed THE NIGHTMARE AFFAIR, so when I heard she was writing a YA SF, I knew I had to read it. So far I really like it, but I haven't had a lot of spare time (haha, spare time is a myth!) so I'm not too far in to it. But it totes hooked me by the first chapter, so I know I'm going to love it.
I'm... not writing anything right now. Currently querying TDoC, and I've been studying for my chem Praxis test, so writing's been on hold. I do have two SNIs, so I'm excited to finally start up again!
This sounds pretty bad, but famous authors who've had multiple rejections. Being in the query trenches is hard, so knowing that there were other great authors who have gotten tons of rejections is keeping me going! And knowing it only takes ONE agent to say yes. *fingers crossed*
WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN UP TO
Besides studying for chem, I'm job searching. (Anyone know of any bio or chem high school teaching jobs in Philly? eh? eh?) Also trying to get back into running after a brief hiatus. Summer League for Ultimate frisbee just started, so I have games two nights this week, which is awesome. It's so nice to play and be active after studying for weeks straight.
What have you been up to? Anything fun??
