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.
