What's Up Wednesday - December 3

What's Up Wednesday is a weekly blog hop created by Jaime Morrow and Erin Funk to help writers stay in touch. I can't believe it's December already. It seems like New Year's Eve was just last week.

What I'm Reading: 
Last night I skimmed through two books about octopus for a presentation. In other words, no pleasure reading.

What I'm Writing: 
I read through an old WIP over the weekend just to see where it stands. It definitely needs a massive overhaul, especially in the middle, but that's going to have to wait.

What Works for Me: 
Keeping notes of future revisions while working on the first draft and then while it's simmering. I find that when I get an idea for revisions when I'm not actually working on them it's best to just write it down and keep it aside until I get to that point. I don't revise while drafting because I'd probably never finish but it makes sure that I don't forget.

What Else I'm Up to: 
It's the last week of classes before finals and I can't wait for it to be over so that I can go home and just chill out for a month.

Books about octopus? Yikes. Hope you get to do some light reading soon ^_^

Keeping notes is the best idea :D

Best of luck with the last week of school and enjoy that well deserved break.

Keeping notes on revisions you want to do sounds extremely helpful. Best of luck with finals!
