This week's weekly question:How do you write your reviews?
When I first started to write reviews, I kind of used to just wing it. I would have all of these thoughts as I was reading and finishing up the book, but I found that when I would wing it, I tended to forget what it was that I wanted to say about the book. As I started to get back into blogging, I realized that i needed to change up my approach.
Pen to Paper:
That's right, I went to writing it out by hand. When I was in university, I used to do this exact same thing when it came to writing out my university papers. The thing that I really like about writing it this way is that when I go to type it up, I can make my revisions, and change up what I don't like, or what I think doesn't sound good the way I had initially written it. This method has been working for me, and I'm hoping to keep it up.
I also find it really helpful to write notes, and jot down pages/quotes that I really liked. I'm usually thinking as I'm writing I'm reading, but when it comes to actually writing, I forget about some of the spots of the book that I really liked (or disliked).
