1) What I'm Reading
I finished The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irvin which overall I would give two stars to. The story is interesting and I like how it's unknown what really happened to Ichabod Crane. But it's pure narration. You don't get any dialogue. Any proper insight to the characters. There's a lot of telling instead of showing. Now I'm reading Allegiant and I'm 64% done with it so far. I quite like it. Tobias does irritate me a little this time and I have some issue with the two P.O.Vs but I like where it's going so far. Tris is definitely one of my top favourite heroines. She's grown so much in these books and while Tobias continues to put her down (IMO) she's proven many times now that she's more than a sixteen year old girl. She's very mature and has a lot of common sense. Very refreshing to see.
2) What I'm Writing
I edited a chapter of Beast Inside at the beginning of November but I couldn't get any writing or editing last week because of my wrist. Now and again it plays up and hurts to use so I had to let that rest whenever possible.
3) What Else I've Been Up To
I spent the beginning of November in London seeing some old high school friends. We haven't been together as a group for six years so it was one hell of a catch up. We're on week two of the new school term and there's already suspicion of Ofsted coming. Eeek! Now that it's November I've already been getting in the Christmas mood. =D I tried out some mince pies which look a whole lot better than last year's shocking attempt. Christmas Cake this weekend! =D I love Christmas baking even though I don't actually it. I love this time of year but I don't like Christmas desserts and treats.
4) What Inspires Me Right Now
Pete's been busy with Assassin's Creed Black Flag which is all about pirates. He's been playing that non-stop, humming sea shanties and watching Pirates of the Caribbean. I'm getting all sorts of ideas now.
