Ready Set Write, revising, What´s Up Wednesday

What´s Up Wednesday? The <3 edition…



Another blog post from the hotel…:) What´s up Wednesday is the brainchild of Jaime and Erin.  It´s a way to keep in touch in just four headings…

What I´m reading
I am about to start BLEED LIKE ME by Christa Desir. I bought it on release day and I think I´ll be curling up with it today 🙂
What I’m Writing
 ALWAYS SECOND BEST – I shared an exclusive sneak peek yesterday during ONE DREAM´S ONLY´s release day party on Facebook. It´s dual POV and I´m loving it 🙂
Emilia Always Second Best
What else I´ve been up to
I released ONE DREAM ONLY yesterday and had a wonderful release day party on Facebook!
And as always I am amazed and grateful for everyone who’s supported me, tweeted about it, sent me emails. Really, thank you!
Thank you!

What works for me

Writing sprints.

I used to write in the train when I  had about 30 minutes to get the words in…and it worked. So now, I try to do writing sprints on Twitter and see how many words I can get in…Maybe when we´re settled in a house, I might change my routine but for now it works…

I can’t wait to check all your posts and see what you’ve been up to 🙂

  1. Congrats again on your release! Yay!
    I just discovered word sprints this summer and wish I could do them every day. Seriously, I never pump out so many words as when I do those.

  2. Yay! So excited about your successful release day!!! And yay for word sprints! Glad you’ve found something that works for you!

    1. Thanks, Alison 🙂 🙂 Today will be a big writing day…yes, it will (if I repeat it enough time, maybe the words will magically appear :)) Hope you had a wonderful Wednesday!

  3. Happy, happy release day, once again. So excited for you, Elodie! Also, I hope you enjoy BLEED LIKE ME. It’s such a powerful story, and Christa’s writing rocks. Have a great week, lady!

    1. Thanks, Katy 🙂 I am only a few pages in but already very invested…the voice is pulling me right in the story!

  4. I’m happy to hear that your release day was so fun! I wanted to spend more time doing fun things on the FB page, but yesterday was super, super busy, unfortunately. BUT I have my copy of ONE DREAM ONLY, so I’m set.

    I haven’t really done writing springs formally, but there have been a couple of times when Erin and I texted back and forth that we were going to work on writing for the next hour and to check in after that. That really seemed to work for me, so I might have to give the whole writing sprint another try once I get drafting again. Hope you’re having a great week and that house-hunting is going well! 😀

    1. Thanks, Jaime 🙂 The Facebook party was definitely something I´d consider doing again, it was fun and being all day gave me some flexibility so yay! House hunting is going well, now we *just* have to get the mortgage through… Hope we´ll do some word sprints together in the near future…:)

  5. Congrats on your release! You are now not only a published author, but a multi-book published author. I would say, have a great week, but I expect you already are. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Kate 🙂 And I have to say, it still feels surreal to know that I have several books published, but definitely exciting…:) Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

    1. 🙂 Train rides do really help, even though I did really get upset whenever they were late 🙂 Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

  6. Ha ha! Love that cute “note to self” snippet! I’m glad your release day went well and that it was a fun and memorable occasion for you! Hope you find time to squeeze in lots of word sprints this week! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Erin! I did manage some time sprints this week, which were very helpful…hope you had a wonderful wéekend!

  7. Big congrats on the release day! How exciting 🙂 It sounds adorable just from those two lines!

    I used to be the same with train trips – my commute to uni every day meant much more time for brainstorming and notetaking. Unfortunately, the train station is a 40 minute walk from my new house, so I don’t think I’ll be commuting anywhere anytime soon!

    Have a wonderful week, Elodie 🙂

    1. Commuting really does help…even though I did get upset when the trains were late after a long day at work 🙂 Hope you had a wonderful weekend…
