I’m sorry I don’t have a regular MMGM post for you today. The truth is that I haven’t done a lot of reading this week.
But I have done a lot of writing.
This week, my two boys were at camp all week, which meant a sort of “writing retreat” for me.
It is the first time that I’ve had this sort of time to work on my writing: 6 hours a day, 5 days a week. It was simply amazing. I’ve been furiously drafting, though I’ve taken breaks for walks and a few errands as well.
But after writing so much, I find at the end of the day, I have no energy for reading. I keep picking up books, but they don’t hold my interest for more than a few minutes.
It’s as if I only have so many words in me and I’ve used them all up in my own story. I can’t bear to tackle any more words—even if I didn’t have to make them up myself.
I’m ashamed to admit that the only stories I’ve partaken of is movies and TV shows this week. That’s how tired I am after my experiment with “writing full time.”What about you? When you’re writing a lot, do you find it hard to read?
