What´s up Wednesday? The “All the words” edition…

Another blog post from the hotel…:) What´s up Wednesday is the brainchild of Jaime and Erin.  It´s a way to keep in touch in just four headings…

What I´m reading
I finished BLEED LIKE ME by Christa Desir, and OMG (yes this is an OMG moment), this book, this book is so intense and powerful and…I’ll review it tomorrow on my blog. My thoughts will be a bit more coherent but not by much…
I am about to start DAMSEL DISTRESSED by the lovely Kelsey Macke and very much looking forward to it.
What I’m Writing
 ALWAYS SECOND BEST – and my secret New Adult novel…which I can tell you will have romance and a tad of suspense in it. And I’m putting quite a few words in. For that, I am very  grateful to the writers who let me tag along with them in their spreadsheet adventure ❤
What else I´ve been up to
Mortgage paperwork. We found a house…but we´re waiting for final approval of the mortgage…and gosh that’s a lot of paperwork. Since we’re a special case (out of the country for 6 years and visa holders), we need lots of additional things translated and a lot of communication with different people along the process.
Crossing our fingers it goes through, because I might be getting a bit anxious in the hotel room.
This weekend, after going to sign some papers for the house and taking another look at it (did I mention we reaaaallly want it?), we went through a walk in Downs Park right by the Chesapeake Bay. It was gorgeous: the views, the weather, getting out of the hotel, the atmosphere…

What works for me

Accountability and a tad of pressure.

The spreadsheet adventure as I like to call the checking-ins I do with other writers is really keeping me accountable: when on Twitter, one of them says “Who’s in?” and my break is taking longer than planned (I blame Law & Order), I get my butt back in the chair to type away (really grateful to them!)

I can’t wait to check all your posts and see what you’ve been up to 🙂

    Great job on the writing. I too loved Bleed Like Me 🙂 Hope the mortgage gets approved soon and LOL on the Law & Order breaks 😛 Have a great week, Elodie!

  2. Yay for spreadsheet check-ins! Accountability is so crucial for me. Without it, I tend to get lost in episodes of Gossip Girl. 😉 So glad you liked BLEED. Christa is so talented and wonderful. Can’t wait to hear what you think of DAMSEL… Love that book’s cover. Have a wonderful week, Elodie!

    Hope you get all that mortgage stuff sorted out soon, Elodie! I hate that kind of stuff. Makes my head hurt. And yay for accountability! Good luck with all the writing and all the other things this week!

  4. I was fortunate to beta-read Damsel Distressed awhile ago. I’m not sure how much is different from the version I read though so I’m excited to pick it up again. I think it’s being shipped to me as we speak (type).
    Definitely adding Bleed Like Me to my TBR!

    You’re getting so much done! And all while you’re house-hunting and trying to settle in. I’m impressed! Hope the house-hunting is going well and that all of the red tape isn’t too stressful.

    I love the cover for DAMSEL DISTRESSED. So pretty!
