I'm guessing I used up all my reading mojo on the five books that I tore through in the last two weeks. I was browsing the shelves today and nothing grabbed my attention.
It's not unusual. That was quite a bit of reading for me at one time.
It didn't used to be. Reading was everything to me. I had numerous books cracked open at the same time.
Now I have guilty feelings if I'm reading and not writing.
Guilty feelings if I'm reading and not spending time with my husband.
Guilty feelings if I'm reading and not helping my five year old become a better reader.
Guilt, guilt, guilt.
But, I did enjoy those books and I won't feel guilty about reading them. (You buying that?)
As for decisions, I do believe that I have come to one. Fascinating, I know. I do think that I will have to/want to rewrite the beginning of Setting the Record Straight.
Since I have had so many rejections for the story and that is the only thing they are asking for, the first 3-5 pages, it must be time to rework them to make them more interesting.
Now, I just have to figure out how to do that. I'll let you know when I do.
This Thursday will be a good day. It will be my one year anniversary of writing this blog. Although I didn't come up with a contest or blogfest I still hope you guys come by to celebrate with me.
