Reading, Revising, and Recharging

Since What’s Up Wednesday is no longer running, I thought I’d do a general update post on what I’ve been up to lately!


I’m currently working my way through Witch Child by Celia Rees. I’m enjoying it, although I haven’t been reading much as of late. I’ve been busy with writing projects, so reading is going a bit slower than I’d like. It’s alright, though. I’ve been busy and productive in other areas, at least!


Writing-wise, I’ve been focusing on two projects. One is in the stage of hard-copy edits. It’s quite fun doing edits on a hard-copy, actually! There’s something wonderful about putting pen to paper.

My other project is a major revision, which is going well, although there is still a lot of work to be done. I’m using Scrivener to organize everything, which is fantastic. I’m really enjoying using this tool, and I think it’ll be extremely useful for completing this revision. I like being able to group all my notes together in one place, where I can easily glimpse at one page and then quickly switch back to the main story.


It was my birthday at the beginning of the week, and for my present me and my husband spent a couple of hours at our favourite Scandinavian spa. It’s a thoroughly relaxing experience to go there, but I always also like to use the time to brainstorm (I pretend I’m on a mini-writer’s retreat!). I got a few revision details worked out on our latest visit, which is great.

So, that’s a bit of what I’ve been doing. The weather has been fairly cool and dreary here, but I’m happy with the rain, =) I’m just hoping we’ll get a few sunny days soon so I can start taking the baby and the dog out for some strolls!

What have you been up to?

    Been doing some reading and revising, myself. ^_^ For this month's Camp NaNo, I set the goal to complete a couple of editing projects. It ended up taking only a little more than a week, so now I feel strangely adrift for the rest of April. XD Ah, well — I've always got other tasks that need doing. Plus I had a recent library trip, so I can replenish the well with new reading material. Just finished "The Darkest Part of the Forest" by Holly Black. Enjoyed it!
