Taiko Tonight!!!

I’m leaving in a few minutes to meet up with a couple of flight attendant friends that I used to fly with. I’ve been busy the past few days. We’ve had people over to measure our windows so that we can get new coverings. One window in particular allows you to flash the world, so it’ll be nice to have some privacy. Not that I mind flashing the world. *wg* Also need a few things fixed while the house is still under warranty. πŸ˜‰

Tonight we’re off to see the Taiko drummers. I’m really looking forward to the show. I plan to get some work in before I leave. You didn’t really think I wouldn’t squeeze some work in, did you? Honestly, that’s about as exciting as it gets here.

I think I’m entering a reading slump. I can feel it starting and I’m trying to do everything I can think of to cut it off at the pass. (ie read different genres, re-read old favorites, etc.) Not sure it’s working, since I make it about a chapter before I get bored to tears. Any suggestions on how to stop it before it gets worse?

  1. ‘I make it about a chapter before I get bored to tears’

    So, this is how the publishing business ended up recommending a novel begin with chapter three. πŸ™‚

  2. Bernard, *g* Yes, there’s a reason you should start as close to the end of the book as possible. πŸ˜‰

  3. Try switching to non-fiction for a book or two.

  4. Have you read Duma Key yet? :mrgreen:

  5. Phyllis, I’ll have to see if I have any non-fiction. Yes, I know that’s sad. πŸ™„

  6. Charli, No, I haven’t. *g*

  7. Uh…yeah… *G* make sure it’s not MY book that’s putting you into a slump. If it is, I so don’t wanna know.


  8. Let me know what you come up with.
    I’m starting to feel the same way… πŸ™„

  9. LOL! It’s not your book. I’m finding your book very interesting.

  10. LOL! It’s not your book. I’m finding your book very interesting.

    πŸ˜• Hey, I suffer from massive paranoia. It’s part of my charm-or so I keep trying to convince people… πŸ™„

  11. Is it working? πŸ˜†

  12. Raine, I will. Right now I have a manuscript to read through and get back to the publisher, so I don’t have to worry about new reads.

  13. Is it working?

    What, convincing people that it’s part of my charm?

    Nah. But my paranoia does seem to amuse people. Hey, I’ll take what I can get. :mrgreen:

  14. Shiloh, LMAO!

  15. I have that same problem sometimes, Jordan! It usually either happens when I’ve read several excellent books in a row and the bar is set too high, I’m tired of a particular genre but haven’t yet gotten into a new one, or — and this is the worst — have been editing my own writing and can no longer read anyone’s writing without being critical. In each instance, it usually just takes a little time. Soon enough I’m desperate for something new to read.

  16. Caryn, You might be onto something. I’ve been doing a tremendous amount of editing as of late. So I may have a rather skewed perspective right now.
