I have a couple of chapters left to go on the revision of my novel's middle storyline, so I've been focusing a lot of time and attention on getting the words out. Most days lately, I've also been planning to make blog posts, and even more interestingly, planning to contemplate some bigger ideas for the blog, but those items keep rolling over to the next day's to-do list.
My obsession with fiction often extends to the time-management expectations I fabricate for myself, but I think it's time to inject a bit of realism here. I'll be taking the next week or two off from the blog to concentrate my energy on the novel.
When I return, I'll get to the reader requests from last month's call for feedback. In the meantime, feel free to leave additional ideas.
Good Stuff Out There:
→ Gabe Habash writes at PWxyz about The Wonderful and Terrible Habit of Buying Too Many Books: "There are just too many books to read. And while one might make the very good point that you could just wait to buy them when you have more room, there's something about putting them in a row with other books, read and unread, that creates the cumulative impression of your reading self."
