When there’s a lull in the writing . . .

sparrowsI’ve hit one of those in-between times in my writing.

I’ve kind of gotten into the swing of promoting one book, editing another, and writing a third all more or less at the same time.

But this week I’ve hit a lull.

The latest round of edits on The Sound of Rain releasing in November are done. I just finished the draft of the novella I’m writing as part of a collection to come out in September 2018. And while I’ve been working on a new book that would hopefully, maybe, cross my fingers come out in 2019, there’s no hurry until I know if my editor is interested.

What’s a girl to do?

I know–READ!

One of my biggest challenges as a writer is the way all that writing cuts into my reading time. I mean, one of the reasons I became a writer was because I love books!

So this week I’m closing my laptop and dipping into my TBR pile. First up is an ARC of Many Sparrows by Lori Benton. I’ve enjoyed her books for a while and am excited to get an early peek into her latest. Then, Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate. This one is getting LOTS of positive attention and I’m so delighted for Lisa who has worked her tail off for years in order to become an overnight success.

Mmmmm. Reading!

So how about you? What are you reading this week?

  1. Mom

    Beneath A Scarlet Sky by Mark Sullivan about WW2 in Italy and it’s excellent. Then I have a couple of Louise Penny’s mysteries next followed by Michael Connely’s new one.

  2. I’m finishing up Karen Witemeyer’s To Win Her Heart. My TBR pile is growing, too. But I’m working slowly on edits, too. I love that you shared about “raising the stakes for your characters” … I’ll probably be thinking on that all evening. Have a sweet day, Sarah. 🙂
