Reading: Fatherland by Robert Harris to spark my Alternate History writing.  It’s a thriller set in an alternate 1960s Berlin where the Nazis won and America is considering detente with Germany.  I’m not very far into it, but it’s very interesting and the author shows his research well without getting bogged down in the details.  I’m also reading Flirting with Fame by Samantha Joyce, which is about a teenage author who is hiding her real identity because she is insecure about her looks.  It’s very interesting and feels lighthearted even though there are very dark themes present.

Watching: Dancing with the Stars was sad this week for any skating fan, really.  I’m not sure if I want to keep watching, as I was mainly rooting for Nancy.  The new episode of The Handmaid’s Tale was very good, as always.  Don’t let the bastards grind you down, readers!  That was always a fun little bonus to me, as a former Latin student.  “Semper ubi sub ubi,” as well.

Listening:  To the news as I write this, wondering what the news is going to be from the British royal family.

Doing:  Just got back from Disneyland — that’s why this post is much later than a normal “Weekly Wednesday.”

Planning: Blog posts still — so boring to say, but that’s what needs to get done around here.

Writing:  Just submitted my short story to the anthology.  I hope it is accepted!  I’m also looking at doing Pit Mad again in June, but sending out more queries for On Thin Ice in the meantime.  BUT The Lion and the Eagle is calling my name again…

Obsessing Over: Honestly — not much, just hoping it isn’t bad news out of England…
