What I’m reading

I am almost done reading MORE THAN COMICS by Elizabeth Briggs and I don’t want it to end. LOVING IT!
MORE THAN COMICS
And I’m reading an awesome manuscript by a wonderful & lovely writer and friend. The type of writing that makes you pause and think “Wow.”
Yep, I’m lucky..

What else I´ve been up to

  • Taking lots of pictures of Plato The Dog and Peter The Cat 🙂 and posting lots of them on Instagram 🙂

Plato in the snow

  • Walking. A. Lot. Since the fence is still being put up, I take Plato on several walks a day.
  • Taxes, paperwork, trying to organize myself…

What works for me

Critiquing or beta reading. Right now, as mentioned, I’m reading an amazing manuscript and I’m both inspired by the writing (it is gorgeous) and having my brain going into “critique” mode. It helps my own writing I think, especially when comes the time to do a read-through of my own manuscript.

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

  1. Lucky you! Glad to hear you’re enjoying your beta read. And getting out for walks – the snow is finally starting to melt here so we’re hoping to get out more. And the pictures of your pets are so adorable. 🙂

  2. Critiquing helps me with my writing too. Plus, I always feel so lucky to get a sneak peek at my friends’ stories. 🙂 I love that photo of Plato so much. His profile is adorable! Have a wonderful week, Elodie!

    When it comes to critiquing, I’m naturally more of a copyeditor, unless someone has asked exactly how to do something differently. Since I’m not the one who wrote the story and who knows the characters inside and out, I’m not in a position to tell another writer to make drastic changes based on my own preferences. I like the style of my local writing group, which just offers suggestions on how to possibly rephrase some things, or what might need further focus or explanation.

    I agree with you about beta reading and critiquing–it helps me too! Especially when you’re lucky enough to be reading something awesome. (Again, so envious of you right now!) I’m loving the photos you’re sharing of Plato. They’re so great! Have a wonderful week all around, Elodie! 😀

    Ah, I NEED to read Elizabeth’s stuff. I keep hearing such good things, and apparently, she said I remind her of one of her characters? So clearly, I need be reading her books. 🙂

    Love your puppy and kitty pictures! Have a wonderful week, Elodie!

  6. Totally agree about “critique” mode – beta reading has taught me so much about writing I wouldn’t have learned otherwise.

    Love the pet pics 🙂 My tabby cat darted outside the other week and was quickly (and thankfully) stopped by mounds of snow.
