It’s been way too long since I’ve updated this blog, and it’s got to the point where I have so much to say, I don’t know where to begin. So I shall start with today.
I have been neglecting my reading lately and that’s sad. We can blame the week I had my wisdom teeth out, just lying like a 17thC heroine on the couch, playing video games instead of being a productive member of society. So my goal for June is to spend my down-time on books and beta’ing. And I’ve got so many great projects to get through! It’s definitely true that writers have to read, and I certainly find that my own words flow better when I’m reading alongside. I also find myself pickier with books, not wanting to ‘waste’ time I could be spending on writing by reading a less-than-great book. But I think that’s because I never take of my writer’s hat and I need to learn to do that.
Plus it’s gorgeous and sunny, and spending a day on the balcony with a good book and a glass of wine is pretty effing ace.
