Update Thursday #83


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

Reading...

838 of 1026 E.E. Cummings poems finished (11 this week)

Writing...

~ If Only We ~ 37,411 ~
~ Before We Knew ~ 11, 449 ~
~ Whatever This Is ~ outlining ~
~ Under Enchanted Skies ~ 1,550/plotting ~
~ Beyond The Horizon ~ plotting ~
~ So I Thought ~ plotting ~
~ Hold Your Breath ~ plotting ~

The latest = Well..... the writing has been lacking at best this week. I did very little because I had way too much going on. The Scarlet Read-Along has started and preparing for it took up 1/3 of my time. Another 1/3 was... this awesome new blog design! I'll talk more about that in a full blog post very soon. The other 1/3 was a bunch of other things that I have put off. But, I was able to finish reading a few books! It seems like I did a lot, but I already had two of them 3/4 of the way finished last week, so it really isn't. My writing shall get better quite soon. Once I finish the things I've put off, I'll be diving back into writing.

It is November 1st!!! For my lovely friends participating in NaNoWriMo, I wish you all the very best of luck. What you are doing is going to be an amazing experience. I would love to be able to join in with you on this 50,000 word endeavor, but alas, it just wasn't going to work out with everything else I have going on. But, I am here on the sidelines cheering you on.... why? Because I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT!!! <3


Until next time!

  2. I can't wait to hear what you think of Under the Never Sky. And yay, you're reading The Evolution of Mara Dyer, I know how excited you were for that book! I still need to read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. I'm hoping I'll get to it this year. I think I have about 20 books left to reach my goal, and there's just no way, not with writing and all the other stuff I have going on...unless I pick a bunch of short books to zoom through lol

    1. Oh yes, you must read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer as soon as possible. If I had more time, I'd probably be reading the sequel in a day, but alas, I have work and other responsibilities. I think you can meet the goal--you should just read a bunch of novellas! That would work. If you look at the books I've read, they include books that aren't full length novels, there's even a kids book in there. I say GO FOR IT. :D

    2. I was actually thinking of reading novellas, or even a few MG books or those old teen pocket novels (I've been wanting to reread a couple Babysitters Club books...is that really lame? lol). I keep picking long books lately, but I can't seem to find short ones! I should go to the library with that exact purpose in mind lol

    3. It isn't lame... for some reason I keep wanting to read Sweet Valley High books... Lol. :P I pick the long ones anymore too! Makes reading a book a week plus writing hard! But yes, a library trip with that purpose may be in order. And novellas are cheap if you wanted to go that route. ;)
