Update Thursday #41

Welcome to Update Thursday, my own personal meme of sorts where I post an update of the goings on at my blog, with reading, with writing, and beyond. Feel free to borrow the idea from me for your own bookish musings.

Reading...

Books I finished this week:

Books I'm reading now (and some still):
 Notes To Self by Avery Sawyer

4 of 1026 E.E. Cummings poems finished
(Oh man, I almost forgot about doing this. Yep, I've been distracted. Now I'm trying to get caught up.)

Writing...

Didn't get as much revised as I wanted to, but I did figure out a better way to write out the next section. I originally had the idea to make it a whole chapter, but after reading about how over explaining certain points can kill the interest, I decided to add it onto the previous chapter. Some explanation is needed, but definitely not as much as I was throwing out there. It was boring me so much that it kept me from working on it, lol. I think after I work this part out, I'm going to revise a scene I really like to keep me excited about my story. Rewriting the beginning can be dull at times.



Until next time...

  2. Rewriting just sucks regardless of what it is! I hate doing it along with editing. But it's good that you've figured out what you need to do in order to progress. I hope you're enjoying The Hunger Games.

  3. Finally you are reading Hunger Games! I am interested to see what you think of I Capture the Castle too.

    Maybe taking a little break and working on another project to clear your mind might help you edit this one. You might be bored with it just because you have been staring at it forever! I know I have that problem when I work on something too long.

    1. You know what, you may be right. A break from editing might be a good idea. I should finish the first draft of my summer novel. Might rekindle my writing love again! :) Thanks!
