WHAT I'M READING
Still reading The Dream Thieves, and it's so good and rich. I just want to soak in the magic of Henrietta forever.
WHAT I'M WRITING
No serious writing this week, though I did write another #twtpoem. This time it was a little different though because it was paired with a picture. Which leads me to the next section...
First though, Goal: Finish up that scene I was rewriting and connect it to the fragmented bits I have floating around in Scriviner.
WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW
The desert. There's seriously something about driving through the mojave that is both frustrating and inspiring. It's all that space and barrenness (yet not so barren considering the desert flora) combined with traffic, heat, and car accidents.
Heat is color coded sultry red gold/ But I burn like desert skies, fire-hearted, blue/ feverish for you.
WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN UP TO
Remember when I said was resting up from Comic Con? Well, I wasn't fully recovered before I, uh, went off to Las Vegas this past weekend. Fun was still had, of course, but the girls and I did spend a full day just napping and lazing pool-side. There were some annoying hiccups, but we were able to deal with them.
All in all, girls' weekends are THE BEST.

Night 1: We got ready in record time- 30 minutes. (Photo/the Sister)
Night 1- We went to LIGHT - a newish club by Cirque du Soleil. You could tell it was Cirque by the dazzling lights and projections, the whimsical costuming, and the dancers who were extremely acrobatic. There was even a girl doing flips on a trapeze over the dance floor at some point during the night.

Night 2 - We went to 1Oak, where things weren't as fancy but we liked the music better & danced a lot more. Also, more generous use of confetti cannons is always a plus!

What's up with you?
P.S. Come back Friday for continued Comic Con recapping! I will get to the end eventually!
