I must be recharging …

I’ve been trying to get back to working on Deceived by Twilight — and I have done some on it — but I think I must be recharging after finishing the revisions on A Passion Draconic.

Why?

Cause I’ve been reading. A lot. Well, for me.

See, when I’m writing, I read, but it’s liable to take me a week or so to finish a book. Maybe longer, unless it’s something that really grabs me — I read J.R. Ward’s Dark Lover and Lover Eternal in only a couple days. (And as soon as Lover Awakened hits print, well, I’m away from the computer till I finish it. ;))

I’m not sure why that is, but it’s been the case ever since I started writing “seriously” four years ago. Except back then, I used to hardly read at all because I couldn’t turn my Inner Critiquer off. (It’s a lot easier to do now, thankfully.)

I’ve read two books in the past three days (On Fire’s Wings by Christie Golden and Awaken, My Love by Robin Schone, both of which are very good) and I just started another. Technically, it’s three books; it’s an omnibus of Susan Sizemore’s vampire “trilogy.” (I read the first book in it, I Burn For You, which some of you may remember as the “one minute man book.” LOL.)

I should be writing… but I wanna curl up with my books and read! 😯

  1. I so feel you. I’ve been wanting to read a *lot* lately, and I think it’s because I’ve been writing so much that I just don’t usually have the time. And my TBR pile keeps growing and taunting me.

    Read! It’s good for you. 🙂

  2. Especially after I’ve been writing a lot, I just have to read for a few days. My brain just won’t work unless I take some time off. Because I love to read so much, if I’m writing a lot and don’t read much, it kinda stresses me out for some reason. So I read when my brain says “read” and write when my brain says “write”. Thankfully, after reading a couple of books, my creative side kicks in and tells me to put down the paperback and get back to my keyboard! LOL

  3. I’m going through the same thing. I should be writing, but instead I’ve been reading. I came from the doc today, and since I wasn’t feeling well I curled up with a book. I finished reading Kim Harrison’s “A Fistful of Charms.” That’s one of three I’ve been reading. *lol*
