What to do when writing is hard…

Sunday Post was conceived by Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

*sigh*Sorry. This went live early…again. Anywho, how are you this Sunday? I picked up some new books to read.

It’s been a good week, but albeit, one in which I ended up doing a lot more work than I thought I had to do. Why? If you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably seen this already, but I  came home from a walk at the park this weekend thinking, “Oh, I know how to finish that book. 10,000 words should do it!” (which book? You’ll have to wait and see, although, there is a tie into one of my series. And yes, I’m also working on the next Antique Magic book. :))

Only to be reminded I hadn’t gotten to the heart of said-story, yet. Okay, I officially admit it. I write too much. I did make progress, though I’m not sure how much. Shall we say 25,000-40,000 words to go? Ugh! So what do we do when writing gets stuck? Read, of course.

Yes, I got some reading done, but didn’t finish like I’d expected to (No, I take it back. *smacks forehead* I finished the audiobook of Gail Carriger’s Prudence. Enjoyed it, if you want to know. 🙂 I may put the next one on my to be read list. I’m listening to the audiobook of Kelley Armstrong’s Stolen, now. I pretty much just started it, but so far, so good. :))

And what else I picked up this week. Well, like I said, new books to read:
Vanessa and her Sister by Priya Parmar

*rubs hands* I’ve been looking forward to this one for a whole now! If I have not mentioned it before. I am a Woolf fan so, I have high hopes for this book.
