Today I did something I have not done in a long time.
I read fiction.
I read fiction that I didn’t have to read.
I read fiction that was not a client’s submission or a potential author I’m considering representing.
I didn’t skim the book. I read every word.
I purposely put aside all the other reading I “have” to get done on vacation and got lost in a story under an umbrella on the beach. I had no idea how much I needed to rest my mind from going into so many different directions, even if was just for a few hours.
When did you last take time to read a novel? When was the last time you got lost in a story?
If you had asked me that a few days ago, I would not have known how to answer it. I hope you don’t take as long as I did to rest your mind on a good story.
