A literary spin on WIP Wednesdays.

WWW Wednesday. This meme is from shouldbereading.


To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading?

The Artful Edit: On the practice of editing yourself by Susan Bell. Enlightening and encouraging thus far, and I hope it will help me to more effectively self-edit both my creative and academic writing.

• What did you recently finish reading?

At 1.00AM this morning I finished reading The Runaway King by Jennifer A. Nielsen, the sequel to The False Prince. Not as good as the first book, as tends to be the curse for seconds in trilogies, but was an enjoyable read full of foolhardy plans and swashbuckling pirates. I read it in a day and stayed up to finish it even though I had to wake up at 5.00AM to leave for the airport!

• What do you think you’ll read next?

I have The Two Princesses of Bamarre by Gail Carson Levine in my bag and I might just start it on the plane to Colorado. That is, if I don’t read ‘Formative Assessment and Self-Regulated Learning: A Model and Seven Principles of Good Feedback Practice’ by David Nichol and Debra MacFarlane-Dick, from Studies in Higher Education (2006), instead. This is the last of a series of articles I’ve been reading about university-level pedagogy to help me write a teaching philosophy statement for job applications. Surprisingly, I’ve found some of them to be not as dry as I expected them to be and actually quite interesting.
