What I'm Doing...

OK, an update:

What I'm reading right now: Vanishing Acts by Jodi Picoult. I haven't read anything by her in a while (had to take a break). I like it so far, not only because of the decent plot but also because it gives me a chance to study her technique: she does a lot of switching POV and also past vs. present tense. That's what I'm attempting to do in Entwined, so it's good inspiration and motivation.

What I'm writing right now: working through revisions of Summer's Song (still!) and a first draft of Entwined, a literary-romance-paranormal story that jumps all over the place and is incredibly fun to play with.



What I'm watching right now: Fringe is my newest favorite show (good writing and acting), along with Life, which I discovered last season. I've also recently become a convert to House, along with my old faves Prison Break, Survivor (yes, I'll admit it) and Cold Case.



What I'm listening to right now: Where I Stood by Missy Higgins. Oh, and of course holiday carols. 'Tis the season, after all!



What about you?

WTG on your word count and today's sentence is interesting.

I'm reading: Devil May Ride by Wendy Roberts

I'm watching: Fringe, The Mentalists, Eleventh Hour to name a few

I'm listening to holiday carols and I'll admit I just love the Chipmunks Christmas album.

Have a good Friday.

I love your sentences from "Entwined"!

Reading: Dynamic Learning: Dreamweaver CS3 and the entire "In Death" series by J.D. Robb so I can read the latest release in the series.

Watching: NCIS (including all the reruns on USA - they played the pilot the other day! So Fun!) and Criminal Minds

Listening: Not much, unless you count overhearing DD's "Pirates of Penzance" soundtrack that she is suddenly enamored with and has been playing non-stop all week. I mean, I like the show, I like the music but GAH.

Happy Friday!
