There’s something about reading that makes you feel more conscious. I may be talking out of my ass but after a few hours of reading every day I feel like the world is drawn in darker outlines and richer colors. It’s definitely the opposite feeling I get from a Netflix marathon. Nothing against Netflix but I can understand what Frank Lloyd Wright meant when he referred to television as chewing gum for the eyes.
Anyway, I have perhaps months of intense editing ahead of me on my old manuscripts that have just been chilling in my folder waiting for the day I fall in love with them again. I think this week of recharging my batteries with a few books and light editing was exactly what I needed. A visit from an old college friend didn’t hurt either.
I’m feeling confident, and excited to jump back into the worlds I created. I know that excitement is going to be a big help in building momentum to get through first, second, and third round edits. This next book I’m going to edit is special to me. It’s my first attempt at visionary fiction and deals with a character’s transition from death to the afterlife.
As always thank you for reading my blog.
