Hey, it’s “What’s Up” Wednesday

These questions were created by Jaime Morrow for her weekly blog hop.
What I’m Reading:
At the moment, I am between books. I just gave up on a fantasy novel with terrible gender politics. I was hoping that the protagonist would start showing some character growth, but someone who had already read the same book told me it never happens. Alas. It had a good premise.
That said, I have bookmarks in Fic by Anne Jamison and in a collection of Sherlock Holmes short stories that claim to be pastiches.
Wow, I’m a snob!
What I’m Writing:
Even though I’m not completely done with the structural planning of Even Angels (working title), my “magic girl” novel in serial, I gave in and started writing a bit of it out. I’m not sure, but I may do much of this pen-and-paper.
What Inspires Me Right Now:
It’s a good time for magic girls. It seems that Disney is going to be rolling out a series this fall. Cardcaptor Sakura is newly licensed for North America, and Sailor Moon has a new dub and a reboot, both available for watching on Hulu.com. There’s also the Ladybug animated film, which will be a darling mix of French movie making with the tropes of Japanese anime. I’m looking forward to it!
What Else I’ve Been Doing:
It’s summer! I haven’t been able to go camping, but I still hope to do so after Labor Day. And by camping I mean sitting around under the evergreens and writing and daydreaming.
I did get to see Trek in the Park, which is like Shakespeare in the Park but ST:OS episodes. This one was “Mirror, Mirror,” the bearded Spock episode. Completely made of win. I am shocked that this group has been performing for four years, yet I just found out about them this year.
(Argh I think the internet ate my reply… Apologies if you get two of these.)
*grin* I totally hear you on the joy of jumping in and writing even if the planning isn’t fully done.
Trek in the Park sounds awesome! btw have you checked out “Star Trek
Continues”? The third and latest episode picks up where the original “Mirror Mirror” left off. It’s pretty fantastic.
Sorry, comments get screened! I wish it showed that important detail. I usually mirror on my Blogspot, though I didn’t this time. Note to self!
