What I'm Reading & Writing Wednesday


What I’m Reading and Writing Wednesday is my spin on WWW Wednesday brought to us by the fabulous MizB over at Should Be Reading. Thank you MizB for hosting such a great weekly feature.

Hello friends! Long time no see! I have been busy making cute and cuddly crochet things for all of the fall craft shows I have scheduled. But I would also like to start the blog back up again too. Here’s to a successful relaunch.

What I’m Reading Now:

thenightcircusThe Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Yes, after hearing about this book from countless bloggers and vloggers I am finally diving into this one. It’s not exactly what I expected, but there is such beautiful imagery and description. It’s taking me a bit longer to read because I’m savoring it.

What I’m Reading Next:

0-545-05474-5I’ve had this book on my shelf since the spring and have yet to get to it, but I would like to read it very soon. Autumn makes me want to curl up with a good book anyway.

What I’m Writing:

Writing is where I have been focusing a lot of my time lately. I am planning on expanding what I blog about to talk about writing on a larger scale and have been drafting some blog posts and brainstorming different ways that I can talk with all of your about writing.

I am still working on Draft 3 of my novel The Girl in the Glass Coffin. Even though this has been a slow process, I’m trying to get a chapter or two a week to my critique partner. The goal was to be finished with Draft 3 before NaNoWriMo. I’m working on Chapter 13 right now and I’m about half-way there. Maybe I can finish this draft if I can up that up to at least two, maybe 3 chapters revised per week.

What you can look for from Amanda’s Nose in a Book:

  •  Posts about NaNoWriMo and why you should do it! (I’m an ML this year, so I’m already prepping).
  • Pantsing vs planning
  • Sharing your writing with others
  • The usual memes that I participate in
  • Hopefully a book review every other week (maybe every week if I can work more reading in with my writing).

And much more!

What are you reading and/or writing this week?

    I’m glad you’re loving ‘The Night Circus.’ It was a favorite of mine when I listened to it last year. Yay for writing! I’m going to pass on NaNo this year, but I still want to go to write-ins so I’m going to use the time to edit last year’s NaNo and some other short pieces I’ve been waiting to submit. I’ll miss the community if I don’t.

    Happy Reading! Here’s my WWW: http://samannelizabeth.wordpress.com/2014/09/17/www-wednesday-17-september-2014/

      The NaNoWriMo community is so amazing! I’m really hoping to have an active region this year and am busy organizing write-ins. It’s great that you are still plugging away at editing and revising your NaNo novel from last year!

      Thanks for stopping by my blog! I will check out your WWW <3

    I look forward to your more writing-focused blog 🙂 I haven’t done NaNo for two years, I never got even close to ‘winning’ so I gave up. I’m considering it this year though. Depends on my work situation.

    Also, that Marcello book looks so pretty!

      Last year was the first year I won NaNo and the community is so great that I am so excited to be an ML this year.

      You should definitely give it a shot if you have the time. Even if you don’t “win” if you write something that’s still progress :). It’s better than writing nothing at all.

      Thanks for the encouragement, Lipsy! I will try to post the blog hop post tomorrow <3
