I firmly believe writers should read first and foremost. My favorite way to pass the time is to be so immersed in a book that the world around me dissolves.
But it’s been weeks since I made it past the first chapter of any book. Nothing has drawn me in. Romance. Paranormal. Young Adult. Middle Grade. Indie Author. Favorite Author. New Author. Re-reading an old fav.
I’m completely baffled and a bit frustrated. I want to mentally engage with some fictional characters, dammit. There’s only so many Banshee and Downton Abbey episodes I can watch.
It’s the perfect time, too. I’m in the middle of a two week get-distance-from-current-WIPs-so-I-can-edit-better break.
So, what’s my problem? Why does nothing appeal to me?
Has this ever happened to you? Do you have a favorite author or novel that may cure my horrible reading dry spell?
