WHAT I'M READING:
Since last week's WuW I read:
A MONSTER CALLS by Patrick Ness. (LOVED)
MIND GAMES by Kirsten White
THE WAR OF ART by Steven Pressfield (a favorite of mine and I highly recommend to all writers, along with BIRD BY BIRD by Anne Lamott)
And one of my favorite books 100 YEARS OF SOLITUDE by Gabriel García Márquez
WHAT I'M WRITING:
To be honest, I didn't get as much as I'd hoped done last week.
I revised about 7-8 pages of one project and maybe 2 pages of another.
And that SNI that I've been trying to ignore? I mostly ignored it. No new words, but I confess to thinking about it more than I should. (I need to be thinking about the above projects and how to make them everything they need to be).
One of the things I keep thinking about is how to tell the story in an interesting way by playing with its structure. (and my recent binge-watching of LOST is only exasperating that desire.) (what could possibly go wrong?)
MY GOAL THIS WEEK is to focus hard on writing my 2nd draft of Backwards Book. I'd like to knock out a couple chapters of it, at least.
WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN UP TO:
I've been busy. But when I've had time to relax I've been binging on watching the TV show LOST. Lots of friends on Twitter told me I had to. So I am. I finished season 4 last night. And all I can say is: HOLY SHIZZBALLS. What a ride so far!
(if the series ender ends up explaining it was all a dream, I'm gonna be pissed.)
WHAT'S INSPIRING ME RIGHT NOW:
This song works on so many levels for my southern gothic backwards book.
What's up with YOU? How was YOUR WEEK?

- My name is Lola. (I'm not a showgirl) Yes, L-O-L-A Lola. It's the least of my worries. Let's move on, shall we? This blog is mostly about my misadventures on the journey to publication and beyond. My passion for lush prose, quirky characters, art, music, literature, performing arts and anything creative will be a major theme here. This journey of mine will not always be pretty. Much like rubbernecking a train wreck, I know sometimes you just can't help but look at the carnage that is often my life. So strap on your neck brace, helmet and 5-point harness and come along for the ride! Licentia poetica.
