Update Thursday #90


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...

958 of 1026 E.E. Cummings poems finished (4 this week)

Writing...

~ If Only We ~ 43,897 ~
~ Before We Knew ~ 11, 449 ~
~ Whatever This Is ~ outlining ~

~ Beyond The Horizon ~ plotting ~
~ So I Thought ~ plotting ~
~ Hold Your Breath ~ plotting ~

The latest = 845 words. Not bad considering my week at work! By tomorrow night, I'll have worked 10 extra hours this week. *passes out thinking about it* But I'm actually doing okay, I mean, I'm functioning okay. Sure, I keep getting into this slap happy phase when I instant message my friend Rebecca every day, but it provides for some much needed entertainment for the both of us. Once the weekend hits, I'll be able to catch up on all sorts of everything--emails and posts and reading. I'm actually almost finished with E.E. Cummings, much sooner than expected... I think I majorly miscalculated the number of poems--I went by the table of contents and I think I double counted a couple small sections that had a title, then numbers below them, when I should have just counted the numbers (if that makes sense...). In any case, things are looking up!

I actually wrote out a couple of blog posts I've been sitting on last night after seeing THIS PIN on Pinterest. In case you don't want to click on it, it says, "A year from now you will wish you had started today." It really, REALLY got me to thinking last night and I almost feel like I was the jump-start I needed to make some changes in my thinking and my actions. I can't wait to get those posts scheduled. I hope they can be inspiring to my fellow writers! <3

Until next time!

  1. Just think of the extra money you're making with all those extra hours! *rubs hands together in miserly fashion* I'm glad you're feeling ok with all the craziness, except for the punchiness but that's never really a bad thing. ;-)

    1. Ah yes, extra money. That's one of the few good things about working. Oh the punchiness is making life fun so yes, it's not a bad thing at all! ;)
