Rant: The trouble with writing is it gets in the way of my reading.
It’s a truth universally acknowledged — to write well, you must read widely. What is un-acknowledged is how difficult it is to do both.
When I dedicate the time necessary to make any progress in my writing, it leaves very little time for reading.
That’s all. Just a little rant on how hard it is find a balance.
I understand completely. I find I have the same problem. All to often reading wins out and the writing lags behind. What to do? Quit my job! Devote the mornings to writing and the afternoons to reading. I won’t have a house or food but I’d be happy. 🙂
Even now that I’m working part-time, I still have this problem. But I really like your solution!
And THEN try to find time to think about it all … the reading and the writing! *big sigh*
