Sundays Are for Writing #224

This was a decent writing week: I wrote three book reviews (Warrior Girl Unearthed, The Secret Book of Flora Lea, and The Last One to Fall by Gabriella Lepore, forthcoming), my April reading post, and the best books I read in April post. My job has entered a new stage of crazy, so writing will be challenging for a while, but I’m looking forward to doing more brainstorming on the potential fiction idea.

Happy writing!

Sundays Are for Writing #222

I ended up working an extra day this week—and all five days were mentally exhausting—so I only wrote one book review this week, Pieces of Me, by Kate McLaughlin. (Interesting read, but it struck me as a bit sugar-coated.) I also DNFed three books (again), Where Coyotes Howl, The Dutch Orphan, and Under the Cover of Mercy. The first one, I DNFed because there was no conflict in the first 25%, the second, the POV was too distant for my taste, and the last one, the MC felt a bit haughty and distant.

I also wrote four posts on A Little Bit Greener: Green=peace of mind, Time is greener, Sometimes it’s hard to find the light, and tell them they’re pretty. I honestly didn’t realize I wrote that much this week…I ALSO binge read Kresley Cole’s From the Gave , the final book in the Arcana series, which I love.

I also did a solid bit of brainstorming on the new story idea, so I’m very happy with this week of writing!

Sundays Are for Writing #221

This week, I wrote three book reviews, Silver in the Bone, by Alexandra Bracken, This Isn’t Going to End Well, by Daniel Wallace, and How to Best A Marquess, by Janna MacGregor (that’ll be up tomorrow). I also DNFed four books, including This Isn’t Going to End Well, but it’s for a blog tour, so I wrote a review anyway. Also on the DNF list were The House is On Fire, The Seaside Library, and Blind Spots. I guess nothing measured up to Silver in the Bone, which I read last weekend.

Happy writing!

Sundays Are for Writing #220

This was a solid writing week: I wrote two book reviews, Fateful Words, by Paige Shelton and The Sinister Booksellers of Bath, by Garth Nix. I also wrote three posts over on A Little Bit Greener: taking the time, Gardening is greener, and I discovered. And, I did a tiny bit of brainstorming on the potential new fiction project.

Happy writing!

Sundays Are for Writing #219

This has been a great writing week! I wrote four book reviews: Five Fortunes, by Barbara Venkataraman, Once We Were Home, by Jennifer Rosner, Zora Books Her Happy Ever After, by Taj McCoy, and Oxford Star, by Laura Bradbury. I also wrote my March reading post, and my top three books I read in March. I also wrote a post over on A Little Bit Greener. I’m very happy with writing this week!

Happy writing!

Sundays Are for Writing #218

This was a good writing week! I wrote four book reviews: Hotel of Secrets, by Diana Biller, Yours Truly, the Duke, by Amelia Grey, Please, Sorry, Thanks, by Mark Batterson, and When You Wish Upon a Star, by Elizabeth Lim (forthcoming on April 4th). I did a little bit of work over on my other blog, A Little Bit Greener, and I should have a related post up later today there. Also still toying with a fiction idea. I’m very pleased with this week’s writing.

Happy writing! 

Sundays Are for Writing #217

This was a pretty good writing week…even considering how absolutely chaotic work was! I wrote two book reviews, A Novel Proposal, by Denise Hunter, and You Wouldn’t Dare, by Samantha Markum. I also wrote two posts on A Little Bit Greener: Got a minute? and When I’m the one who needs a little green. I’m still finding my way over there with what I want to write about, but actually doing the writing is great. And I actually find myself paying more attention to the small things now, too, when my muse is actively looking for things to write about. There’s a fiction idea sprouting in my mind, too.

Happy writing!
