Words & Wonders (43)

Welcome to Words & Wonders, a weekly journal of writing updates, links I've found useful or interesting, and book recommendations. I hope W&W will prove to be useful to you writers out there as well as offering an insight into my writing progress for my readers. Don't forget to leave a comment with your own writing progress!

In the Writing Cave, this week:

- I edited 158 pages of PERSEYUA this week. Pushing through and dying to be done.

- Written 3,782 words of LibraryHeist and I love it so much. This could be my favourite book yet. (If it IS a book - still not sure if novel or novella.)

In my life:

- Had a better week, health-wise. Turns out you need actual sleep to function as a human being? Huh, who knew????

On the internet, this week I found useful:

- This brilliant post on coding. Read it!! Actually just read the whole blog.
- On trunked manuscripts by Jodi Meadows
- Diving Headfirst Into The Query Trenches
- Summarising Your Novel
- This super informative post about Purim, which I knew nothing about.

A Book I've Loved Lately:

This book took me totally by surprise. I expected a standard fantasy novel BUT NO. Exquisite, swoony romance, a realistically sheltered princess (i.e. locked in tower), a blind MC who doesn't get miraculously cured by magic, and a thoroughly fascinating world where darkness has fallen and there is no sunlight - only dark and the monsters inside it. Do yourself a favour and read it!

What have you written this week?
