I cannot speak elegantly about books, so I won’t try to review High Fidelity or anything, but I did enjoy it. My friend picked it up at the library and I was very excited… It did not disappoint. (Loved the movie too, and the book is almost exactly the same, which pleases my inner John Cusack fan. I could hear his voice as I read it.)
Now I’m reading Lolita, which I have always sort of wanted to read. But I’m going to have to slow down and take some time to get back to my other goal (writing more, which is slightly more important to me… This goal is like a subgoal of that goal, actually.)
Well, summer is here and I no longer have exhausting school work as an excuse for why I’m not reading. It has been months since I read a book on my own for the pure enjoyment of it. Actually, it was during winter break. (Lie, read TFiOS awhile after that.)
I really need to read again soon. There is currently only one book on my shelf (I left the rest in my room at my mom’s house…) but it’s Hannibal Rising. (YES.)
That should be enough to make me want to sit down and just read for a few hours without interruption.
This isn’t exactly a goal that I can ever be done doing. I will always strive to write more…
But I do want to check in and say that I’m pretty proud of myself for the past few months.
In April I wrote a script for Script Frenzy, and that felt really good. It was fast and I got to leave out the hard description and focus just on dialogue and a bit of setting. (:
And now it is June and I am almost halfway finished with Camp NaNo. I even think the story is coming along nicely. :D
My plan is actually to write a little in July as well (not a second session of Camp though—I’ll be doing that in August, hopefully.)
So, I should be pretty good with my goal to write more.
So, yay for not being able to decide which writing events to do and just doing all of them. The community is great, and the time constraint is really motivational.
Also, thank God for plot bunnies. Playing with them makes an excellent reward for reaching my daily writing goals! (Currently 2k a day, but usually I aim for more.)
