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.
Books I finished this week:
Reasons To Be Happy by Katrina Kittle (TBR Pile Challenge)
Books I'm reading now (and some still):
I Capture The Castle by Dodie Smith (Classics Challenge)
Beautiful by Amy Reed (TBR Pile Challenge)
Divergent by Veronica Roth (TBR Pile Challenge)
89 of 1026 E.E. Cummings poems finished (5 this week)
Instead of working on the next chapter, I decided to work on a FUN scene. You know which one that would be. (*wink wink nudge nudge*) I started with the spot leading up to it and then hit the moment when it initially happens. As I was writing it, I realized that I needed to add more to what was going on around them. So I'm going to start a page in my notebook to come up with descriptive words and details of what's going on in different scenes. My scene just felt like it was lacking substance. It was too focused on the MC and her thoughts. Difficult part of writing in first person. Plus, I'm more of an emotion person than an observer. And this needs to change.
Watching Castle has been great for my writing. They're constantly talking about writing and stories. I ended up picking up one of my books on mystery writing and think once I finish my first couple novels, I'll try my hand at a mystery.
Until next time...
