Reading or Writing? Decisions, Decisions…
Reading or Writing
Authors make bad readers! There I’ve admitted it.
While I still read other people’s novels for pure enjoyment, I find myself putting down that must-read novel in favour of picking up that fact-filled book or article necessary to my latest writing project, all in the name of research.
In the end I have to give in and fire up my laptop to get that just thought of passage within the storyline in front of me on the screen.
The whole process is very annoying to say the least when trying to read that novel now sitting closed on the table beside me.
Call me weak-willed if you like. But, when you have the writing bug firmly entrenched in you, everything else that seemed important to you simply fades away.
