Update Thursday #56

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:
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier (Classics Challenge)

Books I'm reading now (and some still):

322 of 1026 E.E. Cummings poems finished (14 this week)
Writing...

I finished my redo of the 10,051 words I originally wrote of If Only We. I'm quite pleased with the results, and I like the direction I've headed with it. As promised, here is the new grand total after the revised revision and additional scenes written: 17,129! All I can say is WOOT!

Other than finishing that up, I didn't do much else. I read through a little more of Before We Knew and typed out a couple little scene ideas I came up with. They probably won't be in the final draft as is, but elements of the scenes will be. I'll be working on a detailed outline for this story since I have some new ideas in mind for it and don't want to forget them (and the order my mind has them in). If Only We is priority though, so I'll be continuing to focus on that most.

Otherwise...

Starting this week is my first 3 day work week! I am so excited to be back to only 3 days a week. So much less stress and so much more time to do stuff. I have three days off in a row--yesterday, today, and tomorrow. I spent a lot of time online yesterday playing catch up and working on some posts. Once I got off the computer, I had given myself a headache from looking at the screen for so long. So what do I do? Go into my room and get on my laptop to write reviews. Lol. I never learn. I ended up getting bored yesterday, but I think it's because I lacked motivation to do anything that needed to be done. Today should be better. I feel more awake.


Until next time...

  2. Isn't it funny that we complain about not having any time to catch up on things but then when we do we fill it with a whole bunch of other things? If only there was a motivation pill. Great news about the writing. It's always good to hear that others are getting along with their writing projects. It makes me feel less lonely writing all on my own.

    1. Motivation pill! Yes!!! So true though. I complain far too much about not having enough time. I need to learn to manage it better. I love hearing about your writing project too. :)

  3. I'm glad you're writing is going well. I hope you didn't spend so much time on the computer doing other things that you didn't want to write when you were done. That happens to me all the time. :(
