I’m reading my own book. I don’t usually do that, but I wanted to read through the Savaged Illusions Trilogy as a whole. Now that I have some distance, I thought it might be interesting. I’m about half way through and don’t hate it. Since I’m not writing at the moment, reading my own work isn’t making me as crazed as it would if I was writing. Then the urge to edit and revise would drive me batty in my own uniquely obsessive way. Right now, though, I’m just seeing if I accomplished what I set out to do.
So far, I’d say yes with the caveat that I could have done a few things better
I’ve also listened to two audio books: The Newcomer by Mary Kay Andrews which was enjoyable enough and Leverage in Death by JD Robb, which I liked. Both the books were sort of background noise as I worked in the kitchen and did assorted chores. I mention that because I often choose books that I like but won’t lose track of if my attention wanders for a couple minutes.
And a random observation here: I hate, and I meant LOATHE music in audio books. I don’t know why, I’m sure it’s one of my weird quirks. Sometimes, books will add music at the beginning and end of chapters, and I’m not a fan. It’s weird because I can play my own music full blast and that’s cool. But in an audiobook? Like nails on a chalkboard.
Even more random thought: Is “Like nails on a chalkboard still a saying since no one uses chalkboards anymore???
Olay, your turn: What are you reading or listening to?
