What's Up Wednesday: October Edition (part-1)


Hello Friends,






Happy October! And Happy Hump Day....which means it's time for a What's Up Wednesday. (sign up at Jaime's blog and join us)


What I'm Reading:
I've read so many books since I last posted, so I'll just list a couple highlights:

NIGHT FILM: Wow, what a ride. And also, man, did she get lucky with her publisher, because even the quality of the paper they used to print her book is thick and glossy and lush. (the hardback weighs a ton)

THE BITTER KINGDOM (the final book in Rae Carson's Fire & Thorns trilogy):
What a satisfying ending to this YA fantasy series. I loved all 3 books. Sad it's over.

What I'm Writing:
I'm still tinkering on the pre-writing, the nailing down of of the slippery thing that is my SNI, which will be my Nanowrimo project (and is the SNI I've mentioned before) 
(if you want to be buddies on the fun that is Nano, my name on the site is: the-sharp-pen). 
I've been doing some free-writing and research and collecting images on my Pinterest Board (called 'Nano Project') for inspiration. And I've made my playlist. 

What Inspires Me Right Now:
I always fin this category to be the most difficult, because EVERYTHING inspires me. Leaving the house, travel, taking a walk, nature, movies, hanging out with friends and family, going to museums, art (viewing and creating), music, reading, people-watching, magazines, pinterest, phone conversations with friends, the news, pamphlets, cheering on fellow writers (and them cheering me on)...literally everything. 
But, I suppose if you're looking for specifics on this SNI, I'd say the images in the pinterest board I mentioned above inspire me. And this song:



What Else I've Been Up To:
Well, I don't want to talk about the Government Shutdown and how that is has a stranglehold on my family and household. So, moving on.
We've been doing a LOT of college visits because our daughter is a senior in high school. (Holy shiz) 
And I've been working on going and cooking mostly vegetarian and organic. Except when I'm snarfing down yummy pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting....and meatballs. And PopTarts. Okay, I'm mostly failing at it, but I am trying. 
And I have my house all decorated and spookified for Halloween.
And I've been reading and critiquing LOTS of fulls lately. 

Okay, that's far more than enough about me. Now it's YOUR turn...
What's Up with YOU??

Have a marvelous week! xoxo


Love,
Lola

About Me

Lola Sharp
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.
