Now, onto my regularly scheduled post.
I read a blog post last weekend that's been sticking in my craw.
How do you read now?
I used to read for pleasure, I'd get so engrossed I could forget about the world around me and often did. I would sit for hours, totally enthralled.
Now, when I try and read for pleasure, I find my inner editor kicking in and I keep putting the book down, something I never, ever did before. I would read straight through the day or night, sometimes both. I'd put off going to the potty, feeding the dogs, taking a shower. Now, I find I can actually do the dishes instead of finishing chapter 10.
How about you? Do any of you do that now? Edit instead of read?
