Wednesday With Words: The Act of Writing

Heyo! It’s break week, and I’m officially back from my little haitus with a new Wednesday With Words post! Today’s quote is from William Zinsser’s famous On Writing Well, a fabulous book about writing that I’ve been perusing this week. While the book focuses on nonfiction writing, it does have quite a few tips that can be applied to fiction writing as well, and also this little description of the writer at work, which I thought was too good (and way too true) not to share today:

On Writing Well


On my reading list this week:

  • Welcome to Night Vale by Joseph Fink & Jeffrey Cranor: A novel based on the hit Welcome to Night Vale podcast about a weird little town in the middle of nowhere, where paranormal happenings are everyday occurrences and every conspiracy theory is true. I love the podcast, and I’m greatly enjoying this book, but I’m not a fan of the super liberal worldview…
  • Cyndere’s Midnight by Jeffrey Overstreet: The second book in the Auralia series. I started reading this back in July of 2016, and then eventually dropped it when my reading pile grew too big for me to manage. I picked it up again recently, as I own the entire series and would really like to finish it. The book is kind of slow, which might have been part of why I originally dropped it, but it’s picking up a bit now that I’m nearing the end.
  • Emily of New Moon by L. M. Montgomery: Rereading this old favorite for the Back to the Classics 2018 challenge. It’s one of my favorite books by L. M. Montgomery! I just identify with Emily so much.

Thanks for reading this week’s Wednesday with Words post! See you again soon.
