I love to read. In fact, I love to read so much it tends to get in the way of other things, like writing. I can read pretty quickly so I always think I can take a few minutes and read this book or that article, but before I realize it two hours have passed. And it's even worse now with the internet and all the wonderful blogs that are out there. I need to prioritize my blog reading somehow and keep everything else going as well.
I've found some very thought provoking posts that are inspirational to my writing and so instead of getting the household duties done, I'm sneaking in writing time to get out the ideas that are flowing through my head. Thus a vicious cycle ensues. Read blogs, write, read blogs, write. At some point I realize I have to get dinner on the table and I sigh in aggravation at the interruption and produce a dinner for my family, but my mind isn't on the task at hand. It's still thinking about what I've read or what I want to write.
I really need to find a better balance, but there really are a lot of cool sites out there. And look, there's another interesting comment from someone. I'll think I'll check out their site!
And so it continues...
