Reading & Writing
I enjoy reading. That's a good thing considering it is one of the essential aspects of writing. Thing is, most of what I've been reading lately consists of my own stories. And, while I enjoy them (one should hope) I figured it was important to get a little variety. Not to mention, it's interesting to see what other writers are doing.
So, I dusted off my GoodReads Profile and created a reading goal for myself. I'm hoping that, by the end of the year, I will have read 50 books. To some, that may sound too easy. But, you have to know, I work full-time and I'm writing every spare moment in between. So, in order to achieve my reading goal, I'm carving out precious writing time to do so.
I don't see it as a huge sacrifice though. I've already finished the first book for the year and it was very interesting. It was Asylum by Madeleine Roux
So, what about you? Do you have any reading goals this year? If you do and you haven't done so already, I recommend signing up with GoodReads. It's a great way to keep track of what you've read and want to read. Plus, it's a great place to get recommendations and connect with people who share your reading interests. Who knows, I might be one of them!
